I'm thinking this is a GR8 start....lol....My morning Smoothie is a tad more complex....I also add Chia Seeds & a Whey Protein Powder. The Greek Yohurt substitute is good....try to get the FF kind. I always peel my 'too-ripe' bananas break 'em in half & put 'em in a Zip-lock type bag & in2 the Freezer!! They are terrific in the Smoothie along w/ the frozen Berries...(any kind). Tossing in a samml amount of Walnuts in the Blender is a good thing too...This always 'holds' me for quite awhile.... Read More

I am new to counting calories and I am looking for a quick and easy breakfast smoothie. This looks simple enough but I cannot find silken tofu at my walmart. What can I use to replace that but keep the calories about the same? Read More

Under NUTRITION there is no account for sugar. I'm also concerned that this is more of a dessert than a meal. c.mcky Read More

DELICIOUS! I can replace my meal with this any day! If you don't have silken tofu use Greek yogurt. It tastes very yummy! Instead of apple juice I used a regular apple and I snuck in a few veggies when I gave this to my kids. They still loved it and didn't notice a thing! Nutritious AND delicious! Read More

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 sneak in veggies? Invest in a juicer!!!!!!!! I swear it is so important. I hate carrots but I juice one big one and put it in with my smoothie and add some vanilla flavored whey protein. I swear it is delicious. Experiment with frozen fruit. Trust me no need for sugary juices the fruit will make it nice and sweet and yummy. Read More

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! Read More

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 Pros: Lots of healthy stuff Read More
