I think you can make about anything into a smoothie (OK realistically maybe not EVERYTHING!) Any fruit can be used (althou I didn't care for pineapple) you can use milk or soymilk instead of water, some people use OJ. I also use yogurt. Sometimes I throw in some oatmeal - that gives it an "interesting" texture. I've added almonds, peanut butter, flaxseed, granola, chocolate protein powder, etc. When I use frozen fruit, I eliminate the few ice cubes. You can really use your imagination and it's a great way to experiment with a new fruit that you may not have liked by itself. And yes, they can add calories VERY QUICKLY!
Good Luck

I like the breakfast in a blender smoothie that Tosca has in her book. I also have been drinking green smoothies. You may want to plug in your measurements and make sure you're withing your calorie range. These have a tendency of getting on up there in calories if you use too much. Here is the recipe I've been using:

1/2 c water
1/2 c mixed berries
1 banana
a scoop of protein powder or sometimes I use yogurt
1 c greens (spinach or any leafy green)

I'm a stay at home mom so I don't have to pack a cooler. I imagine any recipes in Toscas books would work out. For luch, I usually eat salads with chicken, hard boiled eggs, and/or beans. You could bring veggies with hummus or fruit with nut butters for snacks.

I am starting back at College this Fall,and also starting back on the clean eating lifestyle. (I got a bit off track this summer...)
I am looking to see if anyone has any favorite smoothie recipes that they can recommend to me for my breakfast before the crazyness of my day begins. (Gone from 7 am to 10 pm at school and work - both full time!)
I like pretty much everything, but I am on a budget too. Also - what do you pack in your coolers for the day? I will be gone for about 15 hours a day and will need to bring a LOT of food with me to keep me on track and away from fast food...

thank you for your advice in advance!!!
