See below for variations to meet your dietary needs.


Any combination of the following "boosts":


Add ingredients to blender, cover and blend until smooth. Some of the "boosts" have very strong flavors, so experiment gently until you find the combinations you like — or, add some of your own good ideas!


1. Substitute 4 ounces of silken or soft, organic, plain tofu for yogurt.

2. Substitute 1/4 cup of whole grains such as cooked oatmeal or brown rice for raw oat bran.

3. Try a little stevia powder or liquid stevia (a naturally sweet herb sold in our supplement section and not permitted by FDA to be promoted as a sweetener). Or, add a bit of honey, Rapadura (raw sugar), agave nectar or natural maple syrup.

4. Substitute powdered soy or almond milk.
