Um, really? Light syrup and sugar? Hey guys-I usually really like u're recipes, but really? A good smoothie doesn't require extra sugar. Pros: NULL Cons: NULL

1.Replace the plain yogurt with low fat Greek yogurt and you triple the protein. 2.Instead of sugar use Stevia to sweeten. 3.Rinse off the syrup from the apricots, cut in small pieces and freeze for 25 minutes. You don't want the apricots frozen solid, just a little hard. This way you can use less water (ice cubes) and the smoothie will be creamier. 4. This concept is great with all berries, mango, peaches (fresh or canned), necterines or any other dense fruit. Enjoy! Ellen B. Pros: Cons:

I really did enjoy this smoothie recipe, and I'm wondering if you've ever tried Dr. Oz Breakfast Smoothie? Some seem pretty good and others seem a bit too "green" for me. Pros: Cons:
