    Wife had bariatric surgery recently, so our diet has changed. Many protein shakes/smoothies, at first bottled product.

    So we got a Ninja blender and I've beek experimenting.

    I have made a discovery (prolly others found it before me) of how to make the protein shakes nice and creamy smooth rather than icy/foamy.

    Cottage cheese. Makes 'em nice and thick.

    Ice cream is out. Diabetes type 2. I do use yogurt, and am gonna try cream.

    BTW, made a cole slaw discovery a while back. No mayo/miracle whip. El Salvadoran crema.

    Got into them last year whilst staying with a healthy living relative abroad, they had a blender at their place and I bought one when I got home.

    My go to is apple or pear, banana and beetroot, the little cooked packs of four are excellent, one into each smoothe, pour the juice from the pack in for the first. It looks like strawberry once blended. I also drop in spinach if I have it, raspberries are also really good for them.

    Just made one with banana, apple, orange, beetroot and raspberry. Had been processing rolls of film in kitchen yesterday and noticed some dried chemicals stuck to the smoothie jug but what the hell, live a little, eh.
