There are many quick and easy ways to incorporate PGX® granules into your favourite healthy snacks. Fluid and creamy foods are the most compatible choices because they blend well with the extra liquid that is added to make up for the water PGX absorbs. Once you get a sense of how PGX can change a food’s consistency and how much extra liquid to add, PGX granules may become your new ‘go-to’ ingredient for smart snacking recipes.
Here are three superb snacks you can rev-up with PGX granules.
Creamy almond butter spread: Using a small food processor or hand held blender, process 1/4 cup of almond butter with 3 tbsp. of soy milk until the consistency is smooth. Stir in 2.5 g of PGX* and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Enjoy spread on apple slices or plain rice cakes.
Kefir dill dip: Combine 2/3 cups of kefir, 1 tbsp. of minced dill, ½ tbsp. of lemon juice, a pinch of sea salt, and 5 g of PGX* granules in a bowl. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Eat as a dip with fresh-cut veggies.
Blueberry oatmeal sauce: Using a small food processor, process 1 cup of blueberries with ½ cup of water until smooth. Stir in 2.5 g of PGX* granules and allow to sit for 5 – 10 minutes. Drizzle over warm steel cut oats.
Once you feel ready to kick the fibre content of your own recipes up a notch, use the PGX chart for guidance on how much PGX and liquid to use.
* Drink additional water (8 fl. oz.) after ingesting PGX. If you are taking medications, take one hour prior to or two hours after taking PGX.
