Smoothies can be chock full of a healthy dose of vitamins, antioxidants and fortified with minerals, amino acids by tossing in some protein powder, ginseng or additional supplements.

Buy yerself a few bags of frozen blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and pineapple. Peel and freeze clementines and bananas so you can be smoothie-ready at a moment’s notice!

Substitute plain nonfat yogurt instead of or in addition to nonfat milk.

It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can’t remember if it’s the thirteenth or the fourteenth.

    It’s always fun to use Haagen Dasz sorbet in the smoothies…..Can you tell I work in the ice cream business?

  2. Always On Watch says:

    I’ve never made a smoothie, although in the back of my closet is one of those smoothie makers that a local bank was giving out to new customers a few years ago.

    Maybe I can find that smoothie maker and make something scrumptious this summer.

    I was going to suggest chocolate banana, but I see you included it. YUMYUM

    I used to buy soy protein powder and buy Slim Fast chocolate power drink mix, mix some of both of those, the banana, a couple ice cubes, turn the blender on and it’s magic. So good tasting and so good for you.

    i’ll have to share your recipes with our little “smoothie prince” – nancson – he’ll put ANYTHING into his smoothie machine – sometimes he regrets some of the ingredients, but will try just about anything ONCE!

  17. nancz says:

    p.s. – when he was a little guy, he called them “schmoooooozies”!
