If ambrosia is the food of the gods, then this is the shake of the gods. Use leftover fruit salad or fruits nearing their expiration point to come up with a different treat every time. Flax adds an important omega-3 fatty acid, and milk adds protein and calcium to an already high-fiber, antioxidant-rich blend.

  1. First time member with two things: If I may be allowed to warn people about using xylitol… this is extremely dangerous if you have pets… dogs in particular as it causes death very quickly if eaten with no available remedy. Not so in people thankfully. My question is… I’m looking for smoothie’s to mix my “Boswellia serrate, Turmeric & Bromelain with to help with the taste… do you see any problems with mixing this with any of the smoothies you offer? Thank you for your response in advance as I look forward to starting this journey on Monday…

  2. Regarding sweeteners: If you don’t like Stevia or monk fruit, good alternatives are xylitol or coconut sugar, but a larger amount – about a tablespoon of either for this recipe.
    Agave is not a sweetener recommended in this program, as can be hard on the liver and work against your goals here.

  3. If you don’t like Stevia, there are other natural options. Monk fruit sweetener can be used in the same way (teaspoon for teaspoon) and has a lesser aftertaste.
    Among sweeteners with calories, the best are xylitol (a sugar alcohol that can be used like sugar but has 2/3 the calories with none of the bad effects, and definitely no aftertaste) and coconut sugar (same use and calories as sugar, but less negative impact on the body’s metabolism).
