That pumpkin sounds delicious! I think that will be on the menu this week. Last week we did a lot of cinnamon apple banana smoothies.

1. almond breeze or Greek yogurt if I've not planned it the rest of the day.
2. ALWAYS a frozen banana
3. another fresh or frozen fruit, which is usually strawberries, raspberries or blueberries-whatever fruit I have in the freezer to rescue before it starts to deteriorate.

I've been known to add spinach, nuts, pineapple, though I prefer to eat the nuts. If I had a Nutri-bullet, I'd do more veggies like spinach and beets. I think they would be good with Greek yogurt.

I'm considering using the banana, canned pineapple, almond breeze, and cocoa powder. But I'm concerned the cocoa powder will act as a trigger.

I use a protein powder (since I'm always short protein at the end of the day) and add berries, fruit and flax seed oil. I use water cause I'm not a creamy milky fan. They're great to start the day quickly and feel you've done good. emoticon

Seems like we do the same thing concerning the fruit and yogurt. I've been hesitant to add vegetables because I don't know how the flavor (and color) will change. I never thought about putting tofu in a smoothie though. Thanks for the ideas!

I start with a base of either nonfat yogurt (unflavored) or use skim milk. Then I add the fruit I want, such as green grapes, strawberries, other berries, pineapple, etc. I also buy frozen unsweetened fruit, like peaches, mango, pineapple, and other berries. If you want a smoothie type drink, use the milk or yogurt. If you want a fruit drink, add water (cold) or ice cubes to make it cold. You can also add some green vegetable, such as kale, to the fruit. I have a Vita Mix blender and I love it. My husband bought it for me for Valentine's Day, and I use it almost daily. You can, however, use any blender to make these drinks. The Vita Mix uses the whole fruit or vegetable, skin and all, so your drinks are usually somewhat thicker when this is done. You can also freeze fresh fruit (bananas, strawberries, other berries, etc.) to keep it longer and make the drinks cold. Fruit juice instead of water or milk also makes a good drink. If you use juice, I'd leave out the yogurt. I've also used tofu instead of yogurt, but not everyone likes tofu. Anyway, I love having a drink like this every morning, along with a bowl of whole grain flax cereal and skim milk. This keeps me satisfied until the afternoon. Just play around with different foods and see what they like best.

I started making smoothies most morning for my husband and son. They both feel a lot better and have less stomach upsets on smoothie mornings so I try to have them start each weekday with one. It is an easy and nutritious way to start the day, but I need ideas for variety.So far the constants are lactaid milk, yogurt, and a banana. I throw in another fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, or peaches and blend it all together.How do you make your smoothie?
