50 Smoothies As Promised!


Thursday, February 02, 2012

As talked about with my Wolves (can I call y'all "my" wolves?), here's the 50 Smoothies post. Also note that some aren't the healthiest (like adding a cup of crumbled pound cake) or even using sugar laden strawberry yogurt - when adding fresh or frozen fruit and plain yogurt would be more healthy....use your own good judgement.

I have no clue where this came from other than it's been saved in regular email since the end of August, 2011..... so I can not give proper credit to the author.

As a personal preference and not water things down with ice, I'll freeze bananas, papayas and other fresh fruit which might be a tad over ripe and then add to non-frozen fruit with almond milk or plain greek yogurt.
