((PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE MAKING Recipe created by Dahlia_2020 ... you are welcome to contact me with any questions. Look me up in the membership database and shoot me off a PM. )) First off, let me say that all of my fruit recipes are not smoothie recipes. They are not supposed to be blended, and I recommend you find out if your gliders will eat them diced up and chunky before attempting to serve it to them blended as most gliders dont like their fruit blended up. Whereas on another note, a lot of gliders have to have their veggies blended. Mine definitely fall into that category, but you will have to find out on your own what your gliders personal tastes are. If you are new to glider nutrition, please don't make the mistake of looking at any of my recipes and thinking you can just throw a pinch of each ingredient together and create something of the same nutritional value for your glider. There is a reason why there are more of some ingredients, and less of others, and that's because a glider's meal needs to be balanced with twice the level of useable calcium to the level of phosphorous. My recipe batches are large, because I feed multiple gliders. But if you do not wish to make large batches, then it is quite easy to look at any of my recipes and only use half of each ingredient amount to create a batch half the size. I feed HPW, and I put together my recipes as a way of creating a proper Ca:Ph (Calcium to Phosphorous) ratio of 2:1, or twice the amount of calcium to phosphorous. This is critical for gliders, particularly if they are on the HPW formula. I serve dinner in three parts every night. The HPW itself, the fruit portion, and the veggie portion. I have seven fruit cocktail recipes currently listed. All of them are the proper ratio. I also have five veggie relish recipes with the proper ratios listed as well. I believe in a variety for my gliders, so even though I enjoy the convenience of preparing these recipes in bulk and freezing them in individual portions, I do provide them with a nightly rotation, which is why these recipes work well with each other. Each one brings something different nutritionally to the table, yet they are the proper Ca:Ph ratio. Even if you are not feeding HPW, my recipes would work well for anyone wanting to provide their gliders with some balanced variety. But keep in mind, gliders need BOTH fruit AND veggies. You can't just provide them with one and think they are getting everything they need, just because its Ca:Ph ratio is correct. So if you use my recipes, then you need to select at LEAST one from each category. Gliders also need a protein source (which is what HPW helps provide) so keep that in mind as well. Instructions on making this would be for the papaya to be mashed. This can be accomplished by dicing it up very small, putting it in a large ziplock, and mushing it up. It can still be somewhat chunky/pulpy. The kiwi needs to be skinned (removal of the seeds is optional) and diced into small bite size amounts and then measured. The bananas are sliced into "coin" shapes, measured first, and then further diced into smaller bites after being measured. Strawberries are measured whole, then also diced. Everything gets tossed into a mixing bowl and stirred very well. I measure out a one tablespoon per glider serving into ice cube trays and freeze... I then pop the cubes out (this is made easier if you run hot water over the back of the trays for just a few seconds to help the food cubes to turn loose without breaking in half) and store them in freezer safe containers or freezer bags. Each of my gliders get a one tablespoon serving of one of the veggie relishes and one tablespoon serving of one of the fruit cocktails along with a teaspoon and a half of HPW.
