So, a while ago I talked about making gastroparesis-friendly green juice, this time I wanted to share my favorite gp-friendly smoothie recipe. I have one of these every day and it really helps getting good nutrition. I make four or six of these in one go and freeze them in mason jars, I use the 8oz ones linked below the recipe.
This recipe makes four smoothies. Please note, the original recipe said 3.5 cups of blueberries, that was a mistake on my part, it's about 1.5 cups.
- blueberries, frozen 1.5 cup
- protein powder, 1 teaspoon
- fish oil, 1 teaspoon
- flaxseed oil, 1 teaspoon
- cashew butter, 40 gram(s) (about 4 tablespoons)
- ice cubes, two
- bananas, sliced and frozen, 200 grams/ 7 ounces
- coconut water, 1 cup
- extra water as needed, about 1/2 cup
How to make the smoothie:
Put all the ingredients in the order listed in the blender, add the coconut water and water and blend. This recipe is enough for four smoothies, divide into four containers (I use ball jars) and freeze while still stone cold. Use a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec if you can't digest small bits. Other blenders will struggle to get the mixture fine enough before becoming too warm to refreeze.
Important note on freezing:
Only refreeze the smoothie mixture if absolutely stone-cold after blending. This makes sure no bacteria start to grow in your mixture. Don't freeze the mixture if it got warm while blending, it does keep in the fridge for 24 hours.
Refer to your blender's manual to learn what the quickest way is to blend something with your specific blender.
My preferred brands:
These brands are also available on Iherb.com and vitacost.com. Other ingredients used are by local brands.
