In a blender:

8-10 oz. So Delicious coconut milk

5-6 Frozen strawberries

1 cup blueberries

1 banana

some mango slices

handful of chunked up fresh pineapple

(any fruit works really!)

2 handfuls of frozen chopped kale (do not worry, it blends right up)

1 TBLS. ground flax seed

a good squirt of agave syrup or honey

BLEND.

If you like it thicker, throw in a few cubes, but the frozen berries make it slushy enough for me.

Full of calcium, fiber, digestive enzymes, vitamins and minerals (including folate and B-12, which we can always use) and it keeps you "regular"

;)

How many people you feedin with that there recipe, porkypants? :D

Do you find your blender has trouble with the frozen strawberries? Mine leaves little chunks, irritates me. Only does it with strawberries, any other fruit or ice it destroys...

My old blender did that. I let the strawberries sit out of the freezer and start to thaw and that seemed to help. I freeze bananas when they start to get mushy. I break them into pieces to freeze. They mix better in pieces ( when they are frozen). Also, make sure you add some liquid, that helps.

I make a big batch & freeze it in portions in microwaveable containers. Then I just microwave about a minute on high and stir. Only have to get your blender messy once for four smoothies.

I tend to share some with hubs.

If you put the milk in first, the berries won't gag the blender blades and I do wait a few minutes for them to melt a bit.

My son, M, must have sent you a note. He wants a smoothie with kale. He had a sample at WF when the health class went. Kale is one of the best foods for you.

He did. He said his Mom was mean and wouldn't give him any Kale.

seriously, it really is one of the best foods there is. I ate a lot of it when I was folate and calcium deficient (I made kale soup and kale chips, too) and I got used to having it.

The bags of it are already cleaned and chopped and I just throw it in a freezer ziplock and grab a few chilly handfuls for smoothies.

It makes everything a nice shade of green! I like that color. :)

It doesn't clog the blades, it more gets thrown up the edges without actually blending. Maybe they're just too light to stay near the blades.

I'm drooling. :lol:

This tends to happen with my blender when I don't add enough liquid.. but have you tried letting the strawberries thaw slightly before blending them?

...hmm, if they are frozen, they are like rocks, but if they are fresh, maybe they have super powers and try to jump out of the way of the blades?

Well, the frozen ones are what I'm having the problem with. But maybe they have superpowers too.....

Anybody put frozen mango in their smoothie? I did once, it tasted great. I think it was mango banana berry....

My VitaMix is brilliant for smoothies (ahem smooth ice cream). I use frozen mango, strawberries, banana, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, grapes, pomegranate...and if I want a tropical smoothie, I add a bit of coconut milk and coconut extract along with the vanilla I always add. Or some freshly-squeezed lime, orange or lemon juice and a bit of tangerine oil.

    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
    • The risk of a non-celiac getting intestinal lymphoma is extremely tiny.  The risk of someone with refractory celiac disease is higher (I think maybe double?) but 2 x extremely tiny is still extremely tiny, and an elevated antibody level is not enough to say you have the refractory version.  You could have a repeat endoscopy to look for damage.  Are you still having symptoms?
    • Hello... i got dignoised July 11th... since then I found out I can't handle corn, garlic or dairy.... her stomic might be extra sensitive right now.... im not a doc but I have noticed with out those three foods I have felt better but I belive I might have to cut out more  good luck with you child!!! Its hard
    • About the dairy...I have been giving her lactose free milk and she doesn't have much else for dairy. I am lactose intolerant and I get nausea right away and then get diarrhea later. My daughter doesn't seem to have the same type of reaction I do, so I don't think it's that. For those that are lactose intolerant, were you sick right after eating lactose, or did it take a few hours or days?
