This sounds like a delicious smoothie will try!


Thank you so much for this recipe. It got our daughter thru a weekend of VERY early hockey playoffs. She is unable to eat anything that early so I made this and she loved sipping it on the long drive to the arenas.


I have been making this recipe for myself and my kids minus the added sweetner and with nonfat yogurt. I also add in fresh spinach which adds more nutrients and my kids can't even taste the difference. Also, mix it up with 100% juice cranberry or pineapple juice for variety.


i think it is great


I to like many others here make a similar smoothie on the weekend using 1 fresh banana or 1 frozen, slightly defrosted banana, 2 tbs peanut butter, soymilk, frozen fruit/berries, ground flaxseed, cereal or oatmeal(depending on what I have, and if I have it 1-2 tbs of plain greek yogurt. If it needs thinning then I'll add apple juice. This smoothie is often split into 2-3 portions. Its pretty, so I'm not inclined to need a snack, and as I usually am fairly busy on weekends, a larger portion lasts until mid-afternoon if necessary.
