Smoothie Options



Recommended Posts

I'm really trying to find out how to work veggies into smoothies, or juice extracts etc. Not looking for calorie info.... just looking for veggies that can be camouflaged in a smoothie/juice. I HATE spinach, kale....meh....so I find it very hard to believe that I can erase the gross flavor while still getting vitamins.... not talking about the pills, chews, powders etc....I'm stuck with getting a bypass. My sleeve worked great until Barrett's esophagus was on the possible side effects list for me. Just wanted to hear input on veggies....duh, carrots, got it....that can round out a nutritious smoothie. Once again.... not asking for anything synthetic...got that....not asking about calorie intake. Thanks!

Ok this may be hard but can be done - I am culinary trained so this was not to hard for me,

Couple of things that really help, Since you do not like green go white. Things like Yucca, Cucumber, carrot, Even your squash can be blend into purees, Now to convert them to a smoothie add Greek Plain Yogurt, Ice and Almond Milk. Blend 1/3 of each is a good balance. If you add few blueberry or strawberry the flavor will take over. Going to a good store and looking at the vegetables Grab a few and puree them up.

Also Peanut Butter powder will mask most tastes so will fruit like blueberry pineapple

Try this one to start - I love it but double up the Cinamin and do not worry about finding that squash -

Carrot/Squash

3 large carrots - Mixed color ones are better tasting
1/2 inch fresh ginger - Screw fresh get a tube easy

1/4 kabocha squash, peeled, seeded and roasted - Slow cook it for about two hours in a baking dish
1/2 cup coconut water
1/4 cup raw cashews
1-2 tablespoons maple Syrup -Good stuff not pancake chemical syrup i get it from Seed to table
1 teaspoon cinnamon - Double this up if you like it or use Steva

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
