I love plain no fat yogurt, a couple spoon fulls, half a cup of Trop50 (whatever flavor matches the fruit, now I'm using pomegranate blueberry) a couple whole frozen strawberries, some mixed berries or frozen mango, half a cup of vanilla almond milk (only 20 calories and sooo smooth and creamy!) and a cube or two of ice if I want to really thick, but now the weather is cool so my smoothie won't insta-melt on my way to work or clinicals (though blasting the heater doesn't help my frozen breakfasts). I pretty much use plain yogurt, almond milk, and trop 50 as a base, then add various frozen fruits. OH! And a few packets of my stevia in the raw for some sweetness since all that unsweetened juice, fruit, yogurt, and almond milk makes me pucker my lips when I sip! I'll admit, I still have a sweet tooth, though I'm reining it in with stevia in my coffee and drinks.
1/2 frozen banana 1/2 c frozen fruit (generally berries) almond milk (or regular milk or coconut water) to cover the frozen fruit (1/2 c maybe) ground flax as much spinach as will fit in the bullet cup (perhaps 1-2 c)
It is ugly, but I promise you can't taste the spinach.

I like to use Dannon plain yogurt (about 1/2 cup), a tbsp of honey for sweetness, then add whatever fresh fruit I happen to have - banana + blueberries; banana + strawberries, etc. I through it all in my magic bullet and voila!

swiss miss DIET cocoa?... i hope that doesn't have aspartame in it.. just a thought..
has anyone tried beet smoothies? I have to eat alot of beets because they are good for digestion... My favorite is beets, carrots, blackberries, and bannanas with a watermelon base (and a bit of honey if the beets are too woody...
I can't have milk so most of my smoothies are all veggie or all fruity. But it makes for something a little different and sometimes for an acquired taste... (beets aren't usually on the top of smoothie lists :)
I love a mix of frozen banana, milk, pineapple coconut yogurt and mango. MMM! My favorite breakfast! I also often add psyllium powder and a greens supplement to it too. I can't stand that stuff by themselves!
I have been using smoothies for snacks during the summer. I can get fruits and even some veggies in this way and it is close enough to ice cream that I don't get tempted. Today I used about a cup and a half of fresh strawberries, about 1/3 cup of skim milk, 1 cup of ice and 1 packet of Swiss Miss diet hot cocoa mix. Don't know how many calories it is but it is only 2 WW P+! YUM! You can vary according to your taste or how thick you want it.
