Running out of ideas for the puree phase? This recipe is sure to bring some zest into your post surgery diet. 🍋

We get it, it’s hard to find delicious recipes that fit into the parameters of the puree diet after bariatric surgery. The puree phase feels like the longest week to 10 days (depending on your doctor’s recommendation) ever and can be a true challenge to stay motivated.

Our Lemon Ricotta puree is dense and very filling. The combination of ricotta and lemon zest make for a vibrant pop of flavor as soon as you take your first bite.

At WLS we make the puree phase easier by providing you new pureed recipes so you can meet your nutritional needs, stay within your diet, and still have a lot of different delicious meals; because no one likes eating the same thing over and over again.

The flavorless protein powder in this bariatric recipe packs in protein, and helps you reach your nutritional goals for the day!

This lemon ricotta pureee recipe makes multiple servings, if you’ve got a little one- save this puree for their meal. You can also portion out each serving into a separate container and eat one serving a day, that way you’ve already got one meal planned out every day for the entire week!

We’ve got a blog post that combines ALL of our pureed recipes into one web page, bookmark this page, and come back to it when you’re ready to try a new puree recipe!

Recipes to get you Through the Puree Phase

We use the NutriBullet in this Recipe. We love this high-powered bullet blender because it’s so fast! It also has different sizes & attachments, so you don’t have to dirty a huge cup when you’re making a small portion just for yourself. If you’re interested, take a look on Amazon! The purchase is totally worth it.

If you make our recipe, post, follow and tag us on social media! We love seeing how our blogs can help bariatric patients continue to make healthy choices and maintain wellness years post surgery. That’s what we’re all about at WLS Afterlife!
