I have made this recipe quite a few times,except I don't add sugar. If I do,I add honey,but I don't think it needs any sweetener,it is sweet enough. This morning I used 1 cup orange juice,1 cup mixed berries,1/2 cup mango yogurt,and 1 banana. It is so easy to blend,and it makes enough so I can have some tomorrow.
With a stash of berries in your freezer, you can jump-start your day with this nutritious, tasty smoothie in just minutes. It provides vitamin C, fiber, potassium and soy protein.

I thought this was sooo good! I used vanilla flavored Activia yogurt and one packet of Splenda and kept all the rest of the ingredients the same. However, next time I will leave out the Splenda. It doesn't need it at all. I felt energized and very full after one serving! What a great way to start my day.
This smoothie is quite tasty. I didn't add any sugar but did add a bit of toasted wheat germ. Sweetness was perfect for my taste, but the kids thought it was a bit tart. Either way we all loved it and have made a few times.q
Now this smoothie is much better than the citrus one with 77g of carbs. I personally use Greek yogurt because of the higher protein content that balances the carb to protein ratio. I also put one scoop or half a package of Advocare's chocolate or vanilla muscle gain shake to make full of nutrition. It makes a great pre-workout or post-workout shake. I drink about an hour before or within an hour after I work out and it gives me the nutrition I need for my sweat session.
I am not a big smoothie fan, but I love this one! I use orange/strawberry/banana juice instead of plain OJ. I also use Stevia instead of Splenda. For the yogurt I use all natural yogurt with no sugar or anything else added to it. -Laura MacPhee
