My brother-in-law bought us a Vitamix, we use it almost every day, hide all kinds of veggies in our kids' smoothies. Thanks for sharing.

I usually make fruit based ones myself - but I've taken a liking to the mocha-ccino ones~!

Tofu? Spinach? Kale? Ick!!!!!!!!!!

What happened to fruit? Banana, peaches, cherries, yogurt, juice. Easy, fast, stays with me for hours, keeps me cleansed, only 358 calories.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and looks.

I'd forgotten about tofu in smoothies -- thanks for the reminder.

I've not tried the green smoothies yet, really. More of a berry guy. And I love putting oats in them for flavor and texture.

do you like tofu? :P
100g any fruit (I prefer banana) / 100g tofu / some ice *-*
I always use 100 and 100 but I think it would be better if you used more tofu and less.. banana :P but idk, It would probably taste like ew tofu that way.

The other day I discovered Tofu Smoothies....
they sound kinda eww (I hate Tofu) but they actually taste good, they're more like shakes but.... anyway, they're low fat, low-calorie and contain a good amount of proteins.... emoticon

well it's not a bar really - it's just like a blender except it has a spigot on the front that you can pour directly into a glass...which is pretty cool.

I did some research on the weekend and found a bunch of great recipes for everything from milk based to juice based - to even doing cappuccino/mochaccino type drinks with it... I'm psyched!

That sounds delicious! Pardon me for asking...but what's a smoothie bar? I just Googled it and all I get are locations that make smoothies (like a juice bar).
Sounds like you have an extreme blender of sorts.
Regardless, will have to try the peanut butter banana thing. Yum!

I got a Smoothie-Bar for Christmas - which is good because I had been thinking about buying a blender... turns out this can do all that as well.

I looked through the SparkPeople recipes for smoothies and found one for Banana & Peanut Butter... holy crap is that ever good! Filling as hell too... by lunch time I still wasn't hungry.

wow. This is an exciting new world for me, but I'll be using that tool like it owes me a living I tell ya!
