Wednesday, July 21, 2010 – Detox Day 5

My only mission on Day 5, other than to drink half my body weight in ounces of water, was to find a fix for the dreadful tasting smoothie that I am required to drink for breakfast.

The smoothie was way too frothy (because of the protein powder). I discovered, through a little trial and error, that I could drink 2 good smoothies instead of one bad one by modifying the recipe a bit. I now have one for breakfast and one as my afternoon snack.

Here is what I did to rescue the recipe. I did not use any Stevia as the straight, organic Cranberry Juice and fruit made it as sweet as I like it.

1 Cup Organic Cranberry Juice (instead of Cranberry water)

2 ½ Tbsp. Protein Powder (instead of ¼ cup)

½ Tbsp. Flaxseed Oil

1 Cup fruit (One day I used really good, fresh peaches and the next day I used a mix of fresh strawberries and blueberries)

3 Ice Cubes (instead of 8)

½ Tbsp. Milled Flaxseed

Stevia to taste (I did not use any)

Combine in a blender on high speed.

5 down and 6 to go!

Bon Appetit!
