A protein and fiber-rich drink to go.



READER'S COMMENT:
"The great thing about smoothie recipes that you can alter them to your needs and taste. Too much sugar in these bad boys? I would cut out the apple juice and add some low fat vanilla yogurt for texture and taste. Looking to lose weight or...

Too many carbs

This is far too sweet and has way too many carbs for me. Cut the fruit by at least half- about a quarter cup of berries OR the banana is OK, and add a scoop of protein powder to make a smoothie that is healthy and will keep you from being hungry in an hour

Better recipe for cutting calories and loosing weight

Try 1/2 cup frozen strawberries or blueberries (both low in sugar content) 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder but not necessary (bio trust is great), 1 packet of stevia (NO other sugar substitute) 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk (found in your refrigerated grocery health food section) and blend (fruit juice is loaded with sugar). You can also add a handful of fresh kale and you wont even taste it!

I recently became a smoothie addict. I'm making a green smoothie every day as part of the breakfast or lunch. 2 main things: powerful blender and ratio of fruits & veggies. Most of the time I'm making sure the fruits make less than 50% of the ingredients to cut down on sugar. My recent fave is 2 cups of spinach, 1/2 avocado, an orange (not just juice, the whole orange), about a cup of grapefruit and ice. If I don't have fresh grapefruit I use some from the "No sugar added" Del Monte jar. Sometimes I add a scoop of flavorless whey protein. It's a little tart and absolutely refreshing. Even my husband who doesn't like smoothies (especially green) drinks one and asks for more!
