Veggie shake success

Monday, December 09, 2013

Today is low carb day so I decided to try making veggie shakes again. This time it tasted pretty good, with that addition of non-dairy milk, rather than using water. It cut down on the sweetness of the protein powder I'm able to use. Though I did find another flavor of theirs that I can use, and ordered it today, yay.
Today's first shake was made with my protein powder, two cups of spinach (which I'm testing again to see if I break out from), coconut milk, and a half of an avocado for the fat I needed for the meal. The second one was the same except almond milk instead of coconut, and only one cup of spinach and a cup of mushrooms.
Now those mushrooms gave a bit of a strange flavor truthfully, but not bad...
I'm just so grateful the shakes no longer taste like they did the week I threw up some of my shakes (due to an allergy to zucchini turns out)!

    I like spinach in my smoothies, but I usually do fruit....I guess you wouldn't if you're cutting down the carbs!

    Trying new things can be great -- or awful! I like to do a things called, "Try It Tuesday" to try new things and report on them.

    I am glad that you are trying a variety of things. I need to remember to eat different foods instead of the same things all the time. Really good that you did not get sick, sure hope you do not break out.
    Have a good evening Michelle. emoticon
