Greek yogurt, because it ups the protein. Choice of berries, banana, pineapple, mango. Apple juice or milk.

Hi guys,

I think smoothies should be someting special to enjoy and not something you use for proper nutrition, after all - chewing is most important for many reasons. Therefore I like a bit of ice cream in my smoothie now and then.
