The After the Dentist Smoothie February 16 2016

Going to the dentist, having some dental procedure done that requires anesthesia for pain control, can affect your food intake. It is not only that you won't be able to chew the meal, you could very well bite off your tongue and not even feel it. Well, maybe not that graphic, but you need to be for sure careful to avoid biting your inside cheek.

That said, it is best to drink your meal. What better opportunity than to make yourself a delicious concoction with your high performance blender. In this smoothie we have the best recipe choice for you, which we call the "After the Dentist Smoothie"

Ingredients are:

  • Spinach (good handful)
  • Pineapple (1 slice 3/4" to 1" thick)
  • Grapefruit (1/2)
  • Grapefruit peel section, to taste / desire
  • Yogurt (Greek Style)
  • Avocado (1/2)
  • Cucumber (2 inches - unpeeled)
  • 1.5 to 2 cups of water
  • Blend for about 30 seconds.

Final yield is about 30 ounces, which are 2 to 3 servings anywhere in the world, except in the USA it is 1 US size serving. Drink with straw to avoid spilling the smoothie on your shirt. Remember, you will obviously not have the greatest feeling in your face / lips / mouth. Use the straw on the side where your mouth is not numb.

The outcome of the smoothie and its texture was extremely smooth and due to the speed and power of the KTec (aka Blendtec) blender, with the sharp-bladed Alterna aftermarket container, the avocado was whipped into a gel type texture. This made the smoothie a little stiffer than usual. It is recommended to add a little more water in case you want to the smoothie little more liquid.

Avocado as a smoothie ingredient, will normally stiffen up the smoothie liquidity into more like a puree or even a pudding, if you let it sit long enough. Avocado carries the properties for that. Chia does too. It is a great way to make avocado green pineapple pudding.
