Beyond Nutritional Shakes

Your doctor or nutritionist recommended a nutritional shake, but living off of plain smoothies gets boring pretty quickly. Here are some recipes to mix things up a bit.

We love Enu and Orgain, two organic, gluten-free nutritional shakes. They’re both available as a shake or as a powder in several different flavors.

Notes
  1. If you have a very high powered blender, feel free to include some of the potato skin in with the smoothie if you like for the extra added fiber! Just make sure you have scrubbed it thoroughly before cooking.
  2. The ice cubes can be optional here. As a tip, to omit the ice, slice a banana into a small plastic bag and place in the freezer for use in smoothies later on.
