Smoothie It was a good smoothie. Now I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I just the basics. 1 mug sized cup of brewed green tea. Here is what I did: 2 cups of primarily frozen mixed fruit (I used grapes, raspberries, and blueberries) 1 tablespoon of lemon juice a knife slab of honey 1 packet of Truvia A spoonful or two of yogurt Pros: Delicious, healthy, and filling! Cons: It did end up being pretty thin consistency but still very yummy.

Sounds kind of "thin" to me. I think for a better consistency I would use only 1 cup of fruit including some banana (not more then 1/2 cup) and 1 cup of non-fat or low-fat plain yogurt. I realize this changes the smoothie quite a bit but I think the consistency would be nicer. Also for those avoiding sugar drop the honey. The fruit will sweeten it just fine.
