  • IC Friendly recipes for juices?

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Nutribullet and so far (2 days later) I really love it! Yesterday & today, I had a green drink (spinach & honeydew melon + water) with my breakfast & really liked it - improved energy for several hours afterwards. I also made a smoothie on Friday with cottage cheese, bartlett pear, cinnamon, nutmeg, & vanilla. Also good & felt good afterwards.

    Anyone got good recipes for juices (veg & fruit or just veg) that are IC-friendly?

    I need to find some juices, etc., to help with nutrition. I've been having a real problem with appetite.

    I do have one hint that might add some zest to juices and that is to add a tiny bit of cinnamon (if it's on your safe list ). It enhances the flavor of the fruit.

      I just rediscovered my juicer thought I got rid of it. Any way 3 pears make about 250ml of juice + pulp. Tasty Tasty I really missed my juice in the morning. By the way coconut milk drink in marks and spencers 3 for 2. Yum

        I'm on a serious coconut water kick right now and I drink it in smoothies too. I love to make smoothies with kale, apple and/or pear, avocado, a little frozen banana, and blueberries. I add coconut water to it to keep it smooth. I buy vita coco brand because it tastes just like the coconut water I grew up drinking in Miami...straight out of the coconut.

        My blog on IC, adoption, and academia: the garlic whisperer

        Diagnosed Jan 2013. Currently taking:

        200mg Elmiron morning and night
        25mg Elavil at night (no drowsiness or weight gain)
        culturelle in the morning
        SLIT drops for allergies (environmental) 3 drops/night under the tongue
        zyrtec 24 hour nightly (recommended by uro)
        Instillations 3x/week: Parson's Solution
        uribel and prelief as needed

        Also took Desert Harvest Aloe (3 in the morning and 3 at night) for a year and had great luck.
        No longer need them, so I only take them during flares.

          This delicious juice combination contains a surprise longevity-boosting secret ingredient – beets! This superfood dilates vessels so your blood flows easily, and it’s high in iron, which fights anemia. On top of these health benefits, this drink is inexpensive and easy to make.

          DR. OZ's RED DRINK

          INGREDIENTS
          1 beets
          1 large carrot
          Fresh parsley, to taste
          1 apple (Gala, Fuji or Pink Lady)

          Directions

          Put all ingredients into blender or juicer. Feel free to experiment with ingredient quantities based on your flavor preference. Enjoy!
