From EatingWell: The EatingWell Diet (2007) This formula will work with just about any combination of fruit and juice. Apple juice is a nice choice for its versatility but don't overlook some of the more interesting varieties available these days like cherry, apricot or papaya.

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? :)
