smoothie recipes you'll like

  1. Note: Keep in mind that these ingredients are suggestions so feel free to add your
    own creative twists to them. Here are some things that I do:
    I always use nonfat milk.
    • Adding ground flaxseed and/or wheat germ is always a good idea.
    • I like to use frozen fruit (keeps longer and keeps the smoothies thick). For
    bananas, peel them in advance before putting them in the freezer.
    • A touch of cocoa powder is a nice way to tweak a smoothie for a chocolate
    taste. Almond extract also adds nice flavor. Other popular spices include
    cinnamon and nutmeg.

  4. Ooooohh! Thanks, I'll definitely try these.
     
  5. ooooh, awesome! smoothies are great because they can be super-low-cal, very filling, and yummy all at the same time! and i second the notion that frozen fruit is the way to go, it's hard to consume enough smoothies in a short period of time to make keeping fruit fresh a good idea.
