Healthy and Tasty Smoothies from the Kitchen of the WMD. Fruit & Vegetable, the 'Birdie Basic.'
We would like to help our patients find a way to introduce themselves to the wonderful world of healthful snacking and simultaneously getting a good dosage of essential carbohydrates (ECH).
Advertised on television, almost 8 to 10 times an hour, "Vegetable and Fruit" supplements are more prevalent now, than ever. Many of these products will cost between $45 and $110 per month. If you want to check out 'Garden of Nature,' you can use this link. I think you can save a significant amount of money and get additional nutritional benefit from doing this one, yourself.
Convenience in a can, capsule or tablet, I think that you can do better, by making your own smoothie in the kitchen or at work. There are a few simple tips from my "WMD." She is not weapon-of-mass-destruction, but more like:
"Wife of the MD."
The WMD, my wife, is better known to the grand children as "BIRDIE." So, for our first of many smoothie recipes, we will start with:
Birdie's Basic Smoothie
1/2 banana (FROZEN)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. Sugarless is best
1 cup low fat milk or rice milk
1 cup of frozen fruits and greens, e.g. berries, kiwi, spinach, kale, pineapple, mango
Add a few ice cubes, if your banana or fruit was not frozen.
Use your Ninja TWISTi Blender on high-speed.
It comes out tasty enough for the Doc to enjoy. Like so many men, I would rather clean the gutters than eat Kale, but this smoothie is entirely different.
Note Well: Use frozen fruit, but the frozen banana is what makes it nice and creamy.
