Breana asks: What do you put in your smoothie?

COMMENTS POSTEDsort icon

I make my smoothie with the following: 7 oz Ensure High Protein Shake, 1/2 cup Fresh strawberries, 1/2 Banana, 2 Tbsp Crushed Pineapple, 2 Tbsl Flax Seed, and 4 oz Greek Non fat Yogurt. Put it in a Blender and you will just love it. I do not put any type of sugar, as it is not needed. Sometimes I freeze the berries and banana so that I feel like I am enjoying a milk shake. Try it. You will love it.

A banana (usually half) always makes for a creamier smoothie. I typically use half fresh and half frozen fruit. The frozen fruit thickens it up and slows down my consumption. An added tablespoon of chia & flax seeds to ensure some fibre! :)

Kiwi is also a great fruit to add to a smoothie. You don't even have to peel the skin; just cut it up in slices and throw it in blender. I LOVE red chard; it's got a wonderful taste. I use organic apple juice diluted with water; equal parts or depends on how sweet you would like it. Adding hemp/flax/fish oil is wonderful, too. And can't forget wheat germ! Enjoy!! :-)

I have found that low fat cottage cheese works great as a protein in a smoothie and makes it creamy.
