My smoothies usually have a base of two servings of spinach, a handful of grapes, one cup of unsweetened plain soy milk, and a cup of ice. To that I add a cup of another fruit and two table spoons of ground flax. Bananas, melon, pineapples and mango work well. Sometimes I add avocado and two tables. Sometimes I use chia seeds or skip the flax. The flax can make the smoothie too thick and difficult to drink.
Well blended this recipe yields two servings of a delicious low-fat non-dairy smoothie. The smoothie is a low glycemic breakfast. I find that I must drink it immediately after taking my rapid acting insulin. Sometimes I take the insulin after drinking the smoothie. Nothing ruins my day more than hypoglycemia.
I have no grapes. This morning I planned on blending the spinach with soy milk, melon, ice, flax and avocado. I forgot to add the avocado.
