A lot of foods are off-limits after weight loss surgery. And because of the bubbles, you cannot even drink diet soda for a quick break from your diet. What can you do when you want a refreshing, comforting, or even decadent drink? Here are 10 top bariatric-friendly drinks that are low in carbohydrates, low in sugar, totally fine for your bariatric diet, and completely delicious.
Protein Fruit Drinks
With 30 grams of sugar and no protein, fruit juice and fruit drinks are devastating for a diet. But Protein Fruit Drinks are another story. Tastes of Apple, Cranberry, Grape, Orange, and Wild Berry are all sugar-free and packed with 15 grams of protein.
Smoothies take fruit juice to another level, but can come with hundreds of calories and a week’s worth of sugar. BariatricPal Protein Smoothies are sugar-free but completely delicious, with flavors including Banana, Strawberry, Pineapple, Mango, and Berry.
