This is fabulous, thank you! I will likely be doing weight loss surgery for my diabetes, and there is a long time that I can only eat purees. I can add some Unjury flavored protein to these.

Rhubarb+Wild Berry Yogurt Drink=Heaven!

Okay, so I had some leftover cooked rhubarb that I decided was just too sour to eat, even though I'd sweetened it with Splenda. I've always thought the Wild Berry Yogurt drink was too sweet so I thought, why not put them together? It was delicious, sweet/tart, and thick! It's also a great way to get in 2 cups of vegetables. It would probably be really good as a soft-frozen yogurt. Here's the recipe:

2 c frozen rhubarb chunks
1 IP Wild Berry Yogurt Drink mix
4-6 oz of water (depending on how thick you want it)
Splenda or other approved sweetener to taste
Blend with emersion or regular blender

Enjoy!

Karen

Anyone wanting to make some broccoli/garlic puree, Costco has 3 pound bags of broccoli crowns (very little stem) for $3.50. Making mine now.

Something I tried last night:

Browned 2 minute steaks and put in 9x9 pan. Sprinkled with some sliced mushrooms, covered with Mushroom/Garlic Puree to which I added some IP Potato Puree then baked at 350 for 40 minutes.

Very tasty.

Made the best Puree for soup!

in a pot fill half of it with water, and add some sea salt.
Add: a full stolk of kale, chop it in half if you need to
A full head of cauliflower chopped
a full head of broccoli chopped

let it boil until fully cooked and let it cool down for a few hours
Once cooled down:
Fill the magic bullet cup with the veggies, add a tbs of EVOO and 4 tbs of the water in the pot. (you will need to do this a few times, as there are lots of veggies to puree)
I use it for my Protidiet Cream of Chicken Soup. As it is my favourite soup.

If you want to make stuffed chicken breast, you could use this puree as well for the filling.

There is more than enough for you to freeze. And I also freeze the broth since it also has lots of nutrients and use it to make an OP soup as well.

Enjoy

I am going to start the diet in about a week when I get all my supplements, doing alternative. This forum has got me so excited. Thank you all for this information. The time and effort is so appreciated. Hats off to you all who have met your goal and for those of us who are beginning or continuing, keep it up, don't give up!

IP Chocolate/Vanilla/Cappucino Drink Mix/RTD/Pudding (tasters choice)
1-2c Spinach, loose leaf
1c Lettuce (optional) <--if you need more 'bulk', I prefer it with just Spinach
2c Coffee, chilled (decaf, half-caf, fully leaded, your choice)
Extracts or Sweetener (optional)

1. Put the Spinach, optional Lettuce & Sweetener/Extracts, and 2 cups chilled coffee in a blender ~2 minutes on High to pulverize/liquefy the greens.
2. Add in your IP product of choice and blend ~10 seconds on Low to mix thoroughly. Adding the IP product in last to blend helps keep down the "froth", hence why you preblend the spinach first.
3. Check consistency & taste - adjust accordingly (more sweetener? more coffee?).
4. Serve over ice and enjoy! You can also blend in the ice for a 'milkshake' (pudding gives a great thick texture for this).

*My 'personal recipe' is: IP Chocolate RTD + 2c Half-Caf Coffee, chilled + 2c Spinach + 1 tbsp SF Torani Vanilla.
*I had it just about EVERY morning in Phase 1 and have moved to decaf coffee as my occasional afternoon snack in Phase 3 with all Lettuce (since I have my 2cups veggies at lunch now).
*You can substitute water or flavored herbal teas in place of coffee
*You can substitute WB Yogurt or any other Drink Mix in place of the Chocolate/Vanilla/Cappuccino - I just listed those since they go with coffee - which is my liquid of choice!

Hello,

Thank you for introducing me to my new best friend!!!! Bless you!

For my own selfish reasons, I'm bumping this... This sounds soooo good.
