lol measuring :-p

Frozen banana, coconut yogurt (vanilla or strawberry), frozen or fresh strawberries, orange juice. That's a standard, I deviate from it a lot though. I used to put ice in but I had to get rid of my old icecube trays and haven't gotten around to getting new ones.

Frozen fruit, especially frozen banana, makes the best smoothies IMO.

If I don't have yogurt I put in some vanilla almond milk and add more banana to make it thicker.

Frozen fruit of all sorts - my favourite combination is raspberries, bananas and nectarines. Lately I have been on a black cherry and mango kick. I squeeze in some fresh lime, add milk or coconut milk, my homemade vanilla extract and raw agave syrup. Mine are so thick I have to spoon like soft ice cream. The lime juice and vanilla make all the difference! :)

I always add some veggies with the frozen/fresh fruit. Usually spinach and carrots, sometimes celery and cucumber. And protein powder sometimes and probiotics. Love adding coconut milk or yogurt too. Vanilla is a good idea. I bet almond extract would be good too. I'll have to try that.

I make smoothies from greek yogurt, frozen berries, bananas, honey, orange juice, and flaxseed. Yum! Even my teenage brother (at the VERY picky stage) will eat them. :)

Frozen mangoes from Trade Joe's (the best brand)

About 1 inch of fresh ginger (good for stomach aches) chopped

1 banana

Honey

Warm water

Blend extra long to make sure the ginger gets chopped up well.

I added some cocoa powder an sugar to my banana smoothie, now this is worth waking up for. It is sooooooooooo good !!!! It"s just like gluten an dairy free chocolate ice cream.

It"s been 11 years since i had any "homemade" vanilla extract so i better not go that route !

I wanted to revive this topic as I'm looking for a higher in protein smoothie recipe. I may come up with one of my own but since my GI is having a hard time breaking stuff down.. figured I'd help it out for one meal of the day.. any of your favorite recipes you can share would be fantastic! I can always add protein powder to make it higher in protein..

 

thanks!

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
