good smoothie rescipies??

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I finally talked my mom into buying a blender! So now, I get to be healthier and make some smoothies. My frist experiment is ok, but could be better. Here's whats in it:

Plain Yogurt
Frozen Strawberries
a bit of honey

Do any of you have a favourite and healthy recipie I can try? I was thinking maybe I'd try something with frozen blueberries next...mmmmm

Could give a various combinations that I enjoy.

1) Mango Peach
2) Watermelon + Lime
3) Lime + Honey
4) Strawberry Kiwi + A dash of blueberries and a hint of Mango
5) Chocolate + A hint of mint ice cream

I've got a couple of smoothie recipe books, but you can use your "basic recipe" or instead of yogurt and ice I've used the non fat frozen vanilla yogurt. You can always add a bit of vanilla, or cinnamon/nutmeg too. Or bran/ground flaxseed to make it more healthy (or booze!!)

I love the idea of a watermellon lime one, that's definately on my list of things to try!

vanilla sounds good too, although now I'm wondering what a green apple and cinnamon smoothie would taste like

By the way, you could just as easily make it a simple fruit drink for an even healthier drink. And it tastes just as good.

i got a smoothie maker for christmas and i ahve made some yucky concoctions!

i have no idea why i thought cucumber and celery would make a nice drinK!

try this website: http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/drinks/drinks.html

it tells you exactly what goes into their delicious drinks so you can recreate the recipe at home.

I'm a big fan of Alterra's Berry Booster and then I get Spirotein (sp?) added. I'd maybe call and ask or go online to see what they put in theirs. I'd add blueberries to the recipe you posted....

This may not be super healthy, but it tastes great and is better than chocolate ice cream, health wise-

milk, hershey's syrup, peanut butter, ice, and milk- blend it all together. It's also good if you add Genosoy chocolate protein powder.

We got a Smoothie Jr. blender for a wedding present. They have lots of recipes online. I like mixing frozen strawberries, raspberries, apple juice, and vanilla frozen yogurt together.

Mmm I'm a big smoothie fan too. I always have a pot of frozen blueberries in the freezer and just throw smoe in. I also have frozen mango pieces on hand for smooties. And sliken tofu, but noone else seems to like it!

Huge smoothie fan here, too! I just throw stuff together so I can't really say but I agree that bananas and strawberries are good.

I have some recipes but they really are not very healthy.
