Mmmmm Smoothies. I had one this morning and it helped my queasy trek to work. It was strawberry banana. Yum. I take soy milk (I add till I get the texture right), strawberries, 1 banana (frozen), one container of sf/ ff vanilla yogurt (i think it is about 6oz), and I blend it together with a scoop of protein powder. Then I add the soy milk until the texture is creamy enough for me. You can vary this with any fruit you want. Berries, you can add OJ for a orange creamsicle flavor, you can add peanut butter and cocoa powder, you can add a different flavor of yogurt, you can add coconut water (a natural electrolyte). I have even added spinich! You cannot taste it when it is blended up with the fruit and protein powder. (trust me!)
You can find a lot of books at the library about smoothies and if you want to drop the $$, amazon.com has several. I just tend to fly by the seat of my pants and add either what I have or what sounds good! Have fun!
Now where did I put my hummus.....
Does anybody know which protein powder is good/safe during pregnancy? And what about flax seed oil? Is that safe to put in a smoothie during preg?
