Slushy Drink

We put any type of fruit along with some fruit juice, and a few cups of
ice, into the blender. Blend until it's smooth. Add some water if it's too
thick, blend little more and you've got a slushy. You can use your
imagination as to what to put into it.

Breakfast Smoothie/Dessert

I start by making a few days worth of juice. I usually do this in the
evenings. I do not really believe that a lot of pure juice is very
compatible with a paleo diet since I do not see how H/Gs would have had the
juice without the fruit. Therefore, I buy whole frozen berries and
sometimes frozen pineapple or mango and fill my blender with it. Berries
are relatively low in carbs for those of you watching your carb intake.

Next, you add enough apple juice to cover the fruit. I use flash
pasteurized apple juice from Trader Joes. Ideally you would make your own
with a juicer but be sure to at least get unfiltered.

Blend until smooth. I have a KitchenAid blender which is pretty good. Some
cheaper blenders will not be up to the task.

At this point you can just enjoy the juice as is. In fact, if you add less
juice, you can make a pretty thick frozen desert.

For breakfast, however, I like to get a bit more protein. I got a
Hamilton-Beach DrinkMaster about 10 years ago for making ice cream shakes.
Having quit sugar, it has gotten no use for years. Well, I discovered that
if I put one egg in the cup and add about 8-10 ounces of juice and blend
for about 30-seconds, I get a very light, tasty smoothie. My breakfast
takes me about 2 minutes to prepare and, if I am in a hurry, I can drink it
in the car on my way to work. Sometimes I use 12 ounces of juice and 2
eggs.

The only real worry is the possibility of getting salmonella from the raw
eggs. The consensus on this list appears to be that, while it is possible
for the salmonella to be inside the eggs, it is more likely to just be on
the shell. So it is probably a good idea to dip your eggs in boiling water
for a couple of seconds when you get them home. This is also a great way to
make them last longer. In fact, in my backpacking days, I learned that you
can keep eggs unrefrigerated for days after sealing the egg with this
little trick.

Smoothies

I just take some frozen fruit (peaches, strawberries, etc) and fill the
blender to about the 1 1/2 cup line. I then cover that with the orange
juice and whirl away.

Smoothies: Ice Added

Healthy Hurricane

The Hurricane is a fruit-colored relative of the "daiquiri," and it's
credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O'Brien. In the 1940s, he created
the fruity concoction and served it in hurricane-lamp-shaped glasses to
give away to sailors. The drink caught on, and it has been a mainstay in
the French Quarter in New Orleans ever since. My version of the Healthy
Hurricane is filled with fresh fruit juices, making it perfect for kids to
enjoy. If you want an alcoholic version, see the note about how much rum to
add.

2 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 Crushed ice
1 Fresh cut pineapple, maraschino cherries

Combine orange juice, pineapple juice, pomegranate juice, grapefruit and
lime juice in a large pitcher stirring well. Serve in tall hurricane-style
glasses over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple and cherries, if desired.

To create an alcoholic version, add 1 to 1 1/2 cups light rum, mixing well.

Great Summer Drink

We got a juice drink at TCBY - orange juice with pineapple and banana (and
some ice cubes) blended in. We've been experimenting with it at home. We
are using a lot of bananas! But the drink is delicious. We have also used
frozen peaches or frozen strawberries in it. It's great just with juice,
fruit and ice.

Canteloupe Smoothie

I just take half a canteloupe, clean and peel it, and slice it up into
chunks. Then put it in a blender, with 4-6 ice cubes and enough water to
cover the canteloupe. (If you have a small blender, you can use smaller
amounts of everything.) Then blend it on HIGH for about a minute. When
it's whipped up, it has a sweet, creamy consistency, which is perfect for
anybody who craves drinking milk. I don't, but I love this smoothie.

Fruity Tropical Smoothie

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted [See: Using Coconut Oil in Beverages]
1 tablespoon coconut flour
2 tablespoons honey [optional]
1 large banana, peeled and mashed
1 cup unsweetened pineapple chunks
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
2 kiwis, peeled and halved
2 large mangoes, peeled and cubed
10-12 ice cubes, optional 

In small bowl combine coconut oil, coconut flour, honey and mashed banana.
Mix well, incorporating oil thoroughly. Pour into blender and add all other
ingredients, except ice cubes. Puree on high until well blended, and then
blend for another 1 minute. If mixture is too thick for your taste, you may
add some water, or add the ice and blend on high until ice is completely
crushed.

This makes a nice afternoon snack on a hot day, or a good morning drink at 
breakfast time.

Puddings

Hans' Summer "Ice Cream"

Now you don't have to be jealous on friends cooling down with some ice cream
in the summer heat any more: Just take some berries out of your freezer (or
the supermarket freezer) put in the food processor/blender and turn around
until you have something like berry-snow. Then put in one (or more) fresh
egg, and go on with the blender until thoroughly mixed. You will have to
find out the ultimate proportions yourself, it depends on what berries. Eat
at once. I have got the best results so far with lingons. Strawberries I
cut in smaller pieces before putting in the blender. If you want it
sweeter, add a little raw honey together with the egg.

1/4 lime and blend until perfectly smooth.

1/2 cup soaked almonds
1-2 cups strawberries
1-2 ripe bananas

Mix soaked almonds together with strawberrys and bananas. Try not to add any
water (only add if necessary). Mix everything until it gets very creamy.

exhortation to have little water implies this is for a food processor.]
