Smoothie & Shakes - any homemade ones for a DD

I've been looking in the grocery stores for these, but all i see is very small ones with tons of sugar and calories!

I'd like to make my own, I have strawberries and wild blueberries in the freezer, I just have never made any

For a DD, I would use 1 cup of almond milk, 1/2 scoop of protein powder and 1/2 cup of the berries. That would come to around 150 calories. If I need more liquid, I add some cold, brewed herbal tea like raspberry thriller or rosehip.

I also like kefir smoothies.
1 cup of kefir
1 cup of berries
1 cup of cold, brewed herbal tea
This one's about 230 calories.

My favourite smoothie:

Juice of one 4”grapefruit
One apple
5 or 6 Strawberries (=100g??)
Big dollop of yogurt - plain or flavoured

That's the basic recipe and yummy as it is.

Calories? Depends on ingredients at the time.
The apple, strawberries and grapefruit are 200 cals, so you might want to do half quantities on a low DD.
The yogurt's extra cals but makes it sustaining rather than spiking insulin. Gluc powder might work but I haven't tried it yet. Won't taste as good

You could add to the basic recipe peach, blueberries, whatever ....

This week, I made a mousse with gluc powder, water and a 125g fruit yogurt. I had it as a pudding but it could be drunk like a smoothie before it sets. It was nice and also sustaining.

My 130-calorie DD recipe blends:

3/4 cup S O unsweetened coconut milk
4 frozen cherries
1/8 cup frozen wild blueberries
1 slice frozen peach
1/2 scoop Jay Robb chocolate protein powder
1/2 cup chipped ice, optional

To add different berries or fruits, just check your own calorie counter.

I like the Jay Robb because it is naturally sweetened.

This has 2 grams fiber, 14 grams protein, 11 grams carbs, and sodium is 87.

If your blender is powerful enough to "liquify", you should try a "green smoothie"- use a handful of spinach or kale (believe it or not, you can't really taste it in the smoothie), water, then add your fruit - pretty much any kind you want. I use frozen fruit or I will add ice cubes. You have to watch the fruit though, those calories add up fast for a DD. I do not add any dairy at all but I suppose you could.

For an UD, I will add coconut oil too and perhaps use a banana and I call it my green pina colada.

I just use almond milk, frozen berries (I particulary like strawberries), sweetner (sometimes I use Da Vinci sugar free syrups), and ice.

If you dont mind the texture being a litte more, well, icey... you can make a larger amount by adding ice, without really affecting the flavor as long as you add a a little more sweetner.

I'm now a nutribullet junkie. Green smoothies are helping me lose and feel great. Baby kale, cuke, other greens, hemp seeds, apple or orange, carrot, sometimes a little almond milk.
But never celery and banana together.... So wrong
Find someone to love today, especially yourself.
Eat well and be well! Use your local farmacy! Do more YOGA!

you can just do any flavors you like in food. Like pumpkin pie, apple pie (almond milk, ice cubes, apple, spices, and sweetener of choice). Just play around with flavors you like. If you're not a veggie lover, you can throw in a handful of baby spinach (or whatever) without noticeably affecting the taste....and boost the nutrition. From my own experience, though, I would caution against using too much baby kale at one time.....just.......gross.

I keep trying and I do love the taste of smoothies. I wish I could make one that would actually replace a meal though. I have some canned pumpkin that I used with HWC and froze while I was LCing. No idea how many calories, but I might have one of those today (UD).

LG, I'm like you.....shakes and smoothies just don't cut it as a meal for me. They are something to go WITH a meal. They just don't keep my tum happy on their own.

Flossyliz's method of thickening a shake or smoothie with glucomannan and even letting it set to a pudding consistency is a good way of making a shake last longer, particularly if you have to eat it with a spoon. (Yes, I put a little too much gluc in a smoothie that I made for DH and I told him to treat it like a pudding which worked well. )

DH's 'shake' was
60ml light coconut milk (40kcals)
200ml unsweetened almond milk (28kcals)
frozen cherries and rhubarb (40kcals worth)
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder (I was a little heavy-handed, hence the pudding consistency)

Flavoured with SF chocolate syrup, orgeat and a little orange flower water. After it turned to pudding, I put some freeze dried raspberries with it and a couple of toasted flaked almonds. The total for the whole was still approx. 150kcals and it cheered him up.
