Even pre-op and most of my life for the last 2 years (thanks to paleo low carb eating) I avoid bananas like the plague but I think in small increments they're nutritionally dense and easy on the tummy. I know people love them so I figured this would be a great recipe to share. This felt awesome on my Day 13 post op tummy.
1/2 C. VANILLA GREEK YOGURT (I used 2 Good)
A dash of nutmeg
A dash of cinnamon
1/3 C. Fair Life Fat Free Milk
1/3 C. Filtered Water
1 Scoop Whey Protein (I use MyProgressMD - in Vanilla recommended by my surgery program)
21g carb (normally I'd consider this high but while I am recovering I'm good with it) I aim for under 50g per day
41g protein 🎉
Blend until everything is smooth! I am ending my full liquids soon but was getting really tired of chocolate. I think PB2 would probably also taste great in this recipe but I didn't feel like peanut butter today. You could also add cocoa, etc or any other flavors you like!
