This meal-in-a-glass smoothie is bursting with berries and orange juice, healthful sources of carbohydrate and powerful antioxidants. Getting plenty of antioxidant-rich foods makes sense for active people, since free radicals are produced any time the body's cells process oxygen. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2008

Good But I would use the berries oj yogurt cinammon and or ginger loss the honey berries and oj have enough sugar and vanilla and powdered milk. I switch the oj up for 1/2 banana every other day and found it Great with baby spinach and if your not into wheat germs etc add a 1/3 cup of bran buds. Really good. Pros: Lots of Protien Cons: No Greens Read More

I use blueberries and strawberries. My two year old will even drink this. I usually do it for lunch as I don't always have time to cook and I avoid fast food like a plague. Pros: Tastes great. Cons: It's a bit higher calorie for my diet. Read More

432 Calories? I almost didn't make this because of the calorie count but then I added up the calories on my own and came up with 315 (didn't add the dry milk though). It was delicious! Next time I won't use so many fresh raspberries to avoid so many seeds but strawberries with blueberries would be wonderful. Read More

This smoothie is great as is but I bumped up the nutrients with a little raw baby spinach and alfalfa sprouts. The flavor doesnt change much at all. A great way to get greens into the kids! Read More

MMMM good I like this idea but I like to add a dash of protein powder that is vanilla flavor so I leave out the vanilla and add cimmamon to aid witht the processing of all the sugar. Honey is a magic substance but it is sugar. Read More
