Banana "Bread" Smoothie



Recommended Posts

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.

:980_small_blue_diamond:1/2 banana

:980_small_blue_diamond:1/2 C. vanilla GREEK YOGURT (I used 2 Good)

:980_small_blue_diamond:A dash of nutmeg

:980_small_blue_diamond:A dash of cinnamon

:980_small_blue_diamond:1/3 C. Fair Life Fat Free Milk

:980_small_blue_diamond:1/3 C. Filtered Water

:980_small_blue_diamond: 1 Scoop whey Protein (I use MyProgressMD - in Vanilla recommended by my surgery program)

🍌Nutrition Facts:357_banana:

283kcal

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

4g fat

41g protein 🎉

2g fiber

11g sugar

87mg sodium

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!

Some bariatric surgeons recommend banana smoothies and "Nice-cream", soft serve "ice-cream" made with frozen bananas and berries or cocoa. (It's delicious.)

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
