BRAT diet smoothie

BRAT diet smoothie, originally uploaded by stephaniekg.

A lot of people don't have Rice Milk on their radar but it is becoming much easier to find these days, available on most grocery store shelves in the natural foods section. For those of us with little kids it can be a great addition to the BRAT diet when stomach bugs strike.

Ruby doesn't like bananas, even in a smoothie, so James had this one all to himself this morning. It's a basic recipe but I wanted to share it because it's not that well known how rice milk can be so gentle on their sick little tummies.

1 banana
1/2 C applesauce
1/2-1 C Rice Milk (depending on how thick you'd like it)
crushed ice (again, amount is up to you or even leave it out and use less milk for a thicker smoothie)

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

I would advise starting out with small sips and not serving too cold. I leave the crushed ice out if stomach is still really sensitive...a huge shot of cold is not something it wants at that point. (found this out the hard way)

Anyways, just a little something to break the monotony of a bland diet. Next I'm going to try and make my own, that stuff is expensive!


  1. Gosh I hope they are better soon!

  2. Aww...this flu or whatever that has been going around just won't quit! :-( hope they feel better.

  3. We only drink rice milk here- and with MY all-day-and-night-sickness lately, this smoothie sounds like something I should try!


  4. Unfortunately, we're going to have to give this a try today. Peter's not doing so well. Thanks for the recipe!
