Smoothie making made easy:
- Thoroughly wash all fruit and vegetables before using them in a smoothie. If your white blood count is low, be sure to check with your medical team if it is OK to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.
- If your mouth is sore, skip fruit that contains small seeds (berries, kiwi). These tiny seeds can irritate a sore mouth. Use fruits without seeds (and less acidic), bananas, peaches, nectarines or pears without skins. And skip the flax seeds if your mouth is sore.
- NEVER use raw eggs in a smoothie.
- For a lactose-free diet, choose lactose-free liquid and lactose-free yogurt.
