Milk in Fruit Shakes?

One of my readers asked why I allow nondairy milks in Fruit smoothies for breakfast when you’re supposed to have nothing but Fruit. This was my answer to her.

You’re right Roberta, a perfect combination would be Fruit alone. There are several reasons that I give recipes using the nondairy milk options.

  1. When I first embarked on the UnDiet I didn’t like Fruit shakes that didn’t have some creaminess to them, so these grain and seed milks were a compromise that helped me get over that barrier.
  2. Many people don’t have easy access to fresh Fruit juices. It would be better then to use nondairy milk instead of bottled, canned or frozen juice concentrate. Although it would be even better to just eat fresh Fruit and leave the Fruit shakes for when you have fresh juice available.
  3. Fruit smoothie recipes that are creamy are good ways to help acclimate your kids to the UnDiet. If your kids prefer smoothies with heavy cream and fresh juice rather than those with┬ánondairy milk because it mimics ice-cream I would substitute 1/2 nondairy milk for 1/2 the cream or dairy milk and gradually add more nondairy milk until they’re completely converted.
  4. Sometimes you just need a little variety.

Note: if you or your children are sick a diet of nothing but Fruit smoothies can be helpful. They help to cleanse your body of waste matter and toxins which are the “grippers” that hold onto diseases. They’re also good at hiding the taste of any medicine you might be taking or a perfect opportunity to add ingredients that are healing.
