This was an unexpected surprise! I was originally trying to add more fiber to the Poopinator Plus because we are still waiting on a referral to UCLA Children’s Hospital for a more in depth motility. I also thought it would help his weight loss issue due his currently very limited diet. Sadly the fig gave him too much gas so I had to pull it out. But, as always, I try all of his blends to make sure they taste good and this was amazing! So far, with only 2 calorie dense ingredients an zero prep time this is by far the easiest, highest fiber calorie booster I have made to date.
-8oz Hemp Milk
-8oz Dried Adriatic Figs
- Place the ingredients to the 32oz Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
- Let sit for 20 minutes to soften the figs.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
- Blend until completely smooth (approximately 1-2 minutes), using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
Food Tips: This recipe packs 56.8 calories per 1 ounce serving. That makes it a good calorie booster without added sugars and/or syrup. Because it’s important for oral eaters, I always taste my recipes. This tastes amazing on toast (as seen in the picture). By itself it’s pretty sweet but added to other pureed dessert or snack recipes, I think it would tastes great.
Time tip: Freeze this butter in ice cube trays then pop them out into freezer bags for easy storage and quick defrost.
Money Tip: As with most of my ingredients, the figs and hemp seed are best purchased at a bulk food store like Winco. The prices are always much lower and you can by just what you need so there’s no waste.
