Smoothie Recipes?

Does anyone have any tasty and low fat smoothie recipes?

I have been lax in eating fruit and am always low on my protein intake so was hoping to take care of this with delicious smoothies as I recently purchased a blender.

Thanks in advance

I have a very easy recipe:
1/2 cup fat-free yogurt
1/2 cup fruit juice
1 cup frozen fruit or 1 1/2 cup fresh fruit

Just mix everything together in the blender. :)

I did this last night with a froze (thawed) bag of berry blend fruit, looked to be strawberries and blackberries... it was VERY tart.

Any recommendation on the type of fruit to have it less tart?

Thanks so much for your response

If your worried about protein this is what I do

2 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup ice
2 drops banana extract
Frozen fruit mix banana peach mango strawberry
1/2 cup milk

It's about 40 gram protein and u need atleast 70gram a day also this helps too
Buy fruit flavored chobani yogurt it has 14 gram protein and if you freeze it an hour before u rat it it tastes Like icecream

Another tip when too tart use splenda its calorie free and melts quick

Also do not thaw frozen fruit blend it frozen,

You can google protein shakes and it gives you a full list

I had gastric bypass last March so I'm forever making this

1 cup tropicana 50 orange juice
1 chobani peach yogurt
1 cup frozen fruit mix
1/2 cup Ice

17 grams if protein and it is yummy

Hi,  I have two boys that I 'work' on their diet all the time as well as my own.  This is my famous smoothie and my sons' friends actually request it when at our house----  tasty!

frozen strawberries still frozen
apple juice poured to just above the strawberries
carrot juice (typically purchased)
spinach leaves chopped
dash sugar
dash cinnoman
a banana

Then you could probably throw in some purchased protein powder.

Awesome!

Didn't think to not thaw the berries.. hehe. And great idea about freezing the yogurt for an ice cream alternative!!

Thank you!
