Have you tried coconut water? Here's a link to a blog that may be helpful.

Sorry - didn't seem to copy right. I searched "coconut water" when I was in the blog section.

I don't have any specific recipes but what about using kiwi? They are high in potassium and I personally love the taste...

good luck with everything!!

Hey all!

As my name implies, I have had two transplants. One kidney and one small intestine (rare! haha) and I have HUGE problems staying hydrated and keeping my potassium level up at a normal range- which makes me feel SO run down when it's low that I can barely muster the energy to get to work much less go get some daily exercise in. I have really taken a down turn over the last year, health wise, because I have been neglecting my fluid balance- and potassium load. My heart is having to work a lot harder, which at only 22 years old is scary... resting heart beats shouldn't be in the 90s!

ANYWAY... I was wondering if anyone had any smoothie suggestions to get my potassium in in the mornings? I am rarely hungry first thing when I wake up, but I think I could make myself something blended and I would eat it. ONE THING: I really don't like BANANAS very much.... I'll eat them if they are really masked well in something flavorwise, but it's definitely not my choice fruit!

I have been drinking v8 or orange juice every morning to try to get my potassium in, too.... but I'm growing sick of just these options. Weird question, I know, but I thought maybe someone here would have some recipes? :)

thanks!
