Has anyone ever made these for there gliders?

My two have decided they don't care for fruit so I thought I would try making smoothies by just blending different fruits together and maybe adding some acuca gum and or bee pollen.

sounds good to me - I will have to try that on my girls. They love everything (fruits, veggies, you name it), but I think they would like this too. I don't have any recipes, but what you said sounds good. Off topic kind of here - but wasn't someone making a sugar glider recipe book with smoothie recipes (as well as other recipes) in it?

We serve various fruit smoothies most nights. Never use the acacia gum or bee pollen in them though. Sometimes we will add baby cereal or yogurt. And usually a little fruit juice. We give fresh fruit also from time to time. There are so many ways you can concoct fruit smoothies. Let your imagination run wild! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

I put a few different fruits(usually frozen, but not always) like bluberries, Mango, papaya, apple, and then ad some veggies greenbeans, carrots, sweetpotato, whatever your gliders like. then add some fruit juice, or yogurt (and somtimes a little maybe a teaspoon of honey). I used to put it in my blender and mix it all up ,but i got myself a smoothie maker for x-mas so now i use that. then i pour the leftovers into icecube trays and serve later on in the week.

I got this recipe from SweetGliders, my suggie LOVES it! Doesn't want his veggies any other way.

VEGETABLE RELISH

1 - 32 oz bag for frozen mixed vegetables (thawed)
1 - 4 oz of white grape juice (from baby food section))
4 - 1 tablespoons of honey

Place 1/2 bag of vegetables, 2 oz of juice and 2 tablespoons of honey in the blender, then blender or chop to the consistancy of a thick relish.

Place or scoop into ice cube trays. Freeze them, Then pop them out and place in a freezer container so they don't get freezer burned.

Can then use the other half of bag for another batch.

For those of you who feed the Ensure. You can also mix the Ensure in with the mixed fruit and blend.

We do not blend the vegetables for the gliders but I don't think there would be any harm in doing it. They seem to enjoy grabbing a piece of corn or a pea and running to hide and eat it. So we do not take that little pleasure away from them. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I make sommthies for my gliders every night. Here is a suggestion. Leave out some bannanas until the outside covering of the bannana are almost completly black then blend them in. The ripened fruit adds a lot of flavor and taste to the mix.

Well, I tryed it last night. I went a bought a magic bullet blender. I wanted something small that would travel well. I put watermelon, apple, acuca gum, bee pollen and blended it, then added some baby cereal to thinken it up then added a few drops of honey. It looked SO nasty but they did eat some of it. So, I thinkg this may work. That is until they change there minds again. Silly Critters

I thinkg this weekend I am going to try Becci ideas. Thank You for those ideas by the way.

The good thing about the smoothies is there any number of combinations you can make. Just keep track of what you decide to blend and if they like it put it on the list of do agains. But keep in mind that what they will not eat one night they may pig out on at another time. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

thanks for the recipes--here's one I made tonight and they loved it! 1/2 cup strawberry yogurt, 1 mango-chopped up, 1 gala apple-chopped up, 4 tablespoons of no-sugar added canned crushed pineapple; I blended it up. Nothing else added-seemed to go over well. Lately our's has been leaving all their veggies and eating the fruits and BML. hope y'all are well.

I made the veggie mix because my little guy wasn't eating veggies at all. I tried everything. This is chopped up like a thick relish so he still has the chewing power of it. Not smooth like bml. I still offer him the fresh vegetables once in awhile but they go untouched. Same with the fruits.

I haven't tried the fruit smoothie yet because fruit isn't a problem in our house. It was the vegetables.
I started the VEGETABLE RELISH a few days ago and I honestly thought they we're going to eat the dish that I put it in also. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> I am thrilled that they are finally eating a well rounded diet which includes fresh fruit and BML. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

Where was this recipe when my kids were little???? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

Thanks! I got my two new gliders last night and was worried they may be a picky eaters from their last home. Come to find out they eat more veggies than fruit....strange. My last two gliders would not touch veggies. I think I may try the relish sometime even though they eat solid veggies just to mix things up a few times a week.
