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:


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.)
