If you can't stand a smoothie without adding sugar and buttermilk then you have a LONG way to go on your health journey. This would be a baseline and minimal smoothie recipe. I always jack mine up with as many other goodies (like adaptogenic herbs protein powders leafy greens etc.) that I can stand. Read More

I'm not much for buttermilk so I made mine with 1 cup of soy milk instead. It makes a very tasty smoothy thick and creamy. I like that I've already got 1/2 of my fruits for the day. Read More

I would forgo the added sugar as both fruits contain enough for sweetness as they are. I would also use soy or rice milk or a cup of fat free yogurt in place of the buttermilk. Read More

Mostly good but who needs the sugar? I substitute 1/2 packet of Splenda and "Almond Breeze - Unsweetened" which has only 3g fat and no sugar. theduchessone@rogers.com Read More

It's also good with vanilla yogurt instead of the buttermilk and artificial sweetener instead of sugar. Read More
