Just starting a thread to see if anyone has any delicious, tried-n-true, homemade smoothie recipes? We have a little smoothie maker, and we never use it. I love fruit, it's summer, and I decided I need to learn and make these!

I tried one today, and it's tasty, but I'm having a hard time getting the consistency right. Here is the made up recipe I used: * disclaimer, I have no idea how much I used of anything...just guessed!

some blueberries
about 6 green grapes
3 small pieces pineapple
little bit lemonade (few tbsp?)
couple spoons of plain greek yogurt
little squirt of boysenberry honey
3 ice cubes

I think I need to freeze some berries to help make it a bit thicker, or use frozen greek yogurt instead of the normal kind. It was tasty, but a little thinner than i'd like, and also, my blueberries didn't mix up well. I mean, they blended well, but there were all sorts of blueberry skin pieces in the smoothie

So, any recos? I'd love to have 'em!

Oooh! I've got LOADS!!!

Adding ice or freezing your fruit before blending will give you the thick consistency you're looking for.

Pineapple Shakes

1/4 c. cold milk
2 c. vanilla ice cream
1 can pineapple chunks, undrained
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Nectarine Nelly

1-1/4 c. orange juice
2 c. diced fresh nectarines, frozen
1 c. mango chunks, frozen

Starburst

3/4 c. apple juice
1 c. diced kiwi, fresh
1 c. strawberries, frozen
2 bananas, sliced & frozen

Black Beauty

1 c. vanilla yogurt
1/2 c. grape juice
1-1/2 c. blueberries, frozen
1 c. blackberries, frozen
- Combine yogurt & grape juice in blender.
- Add berries & blend til smooth.
- Strain through sieve to remove seeds & blueberry skins

Just Dew It!

2-1/2 c. diced honeydew melon, fresh
2 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
Pinch of salt
1/2 c. Ginger Ale or Lemon Lime soda
6 ice cubes

Tea-licious

1 c. strong brewed Peppermint Tea (Decaf is fine), room temp or chilled
1/2 c. lemon sorbet
1-1/2 c. orange segments, frozen
1/2 c. grapefruit segments, frozen
- Combine tea & sorbet in blender
- Add orange & grapefruit segments
- Blend til smooth

I can give you more!! But that's likely enough for now!

FROZEN. That makes sense! These are fab! I knew you would come through for me! I didn't think of straining mine to remove the blueberry skins...those were more than mildly annoying! YAY, excited! xx

I love protein powder shakes!

While it can be a little expensive...the whey protein that I use is TOTALLY worth it as it's the best tasting out there... )

I use J Robb Whey Protein (also only one I know of made with stevia!).

1 scoop J Robb Chocolate whey protein
1/2 tbsp stevia extract in the raw
1 FROZEN banana
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk (the lowest calorie you can find - usually only 1 or 2 g carbs/sugar)
OPTIONAL - 1 tsp skippy natural peanut butter
blend and drink!

1 scoop j robb strawberry j robb protein powder
1/2 cup FROZEN strawberries
1/2 tbsp stevia extract in the raw
1 cup either unsweetened almond or coconut milk


I use unsweetened coconut milk (or almond, depends on my mood) as a base for EVERY smoothie! sooooooo delicious (and that's a brand I like is So Delicious Coconut Milk! haha!) and sooooo good for you!
