View Full Version : my favorite smoothie
07-15-2005, 10:55 AM
for today, anyway......
2 frozen bananas
4 peaches, peeled
2-3 T. almond butter
generous squirt of agave
dash of cinnamon
1/2 vanilla bean (optional)
water to blend
sooo delicous! I remember reading somewhere that peaches and almonds (and roses!) are in the same family. Maybe this is why they taste so good together?

It is called the Rosaceae Family!
If you scroll down, you will see that peach and almond are also in the same genus, called Prunus!

Today I made my first Smoothie ever. Peaches, strawberries and blueberries. I'm a diabetic so I tested my blood sugar an hour after drinking it. I didn't like the results. Is there a tasty green or something that I can add to a smoothie that will lower the glycemic impact and still be yummy?
Also, I don't have a smoothie maker. I used the blender. It has umpteen settings on it. What setting do you folks use that are using a blender? I'm just a guy and am lost in the kitchen, sorry.
Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

Fascinating about the peaches and roses !!!!!!!!!! I feel a little more intelligent today! Thanks :)
Jimy Bear--does your blender have settings such as: blend, puree, pulse, grate etc???? If I have chunky harder pieces, i usually pulse it first since my blender is CHEAP. Then "blend" setting. :)

Hey there Jimmy Bear. Yeah, adding a little bit of celery or pretty much any greens will lower the glycemic impact. Do a little experimenting and you should be able to come up with what works for you.
Also, I'm sure SweetLips won't mind me telling you to PM her, she's probably got tons of ideas that can help you. :)
Glad to see you here.

Thank you MissLinda. Yep, I got those settings. I'll try them tomorrow and see what works best. I like the idea of pulsing the heavy stuff first until it's broken down a bit. That's smart.
Hey Walkin'onWater, am I to assume SweetLips is diabetic also? I'm lookin' for green stuff that doean't take away the fabulous taste of these fruit smoothies. yum yum

Jimmy - try baby spinach. I find it doesn't compromise the sweetness. Just add a little at first - small hand full. You can add more as you adjust to it.
