I always add a carrot, spinach, banana and another frozen fruit to yogurt, egg whites, silk and protein powder. Very yummy

Great ideas! I keep flaxseed oil in the fridge to add sometimes if I'm not adding a nut butter. Keeps me full longer to add a tablespoon to the mix.

As for other recipes (the thread suggested) I really enjoy dark chocolate almond muffins for breakfast. High protein and fiber. Made with ground almonds, dark chocolate, eggs and coconut oil. There is a recipe on spark people. Great for revving the metabolism in the morning.

a handful of spinach added to any of these recipes will give smoothie a nice fresh flavour and more nutrients.

My daughter makes this for her breakfast every morning and takes it with her to work. She says it gives her so much energy and keeps her full until lunch. I hope this helps, you could also check Angela's website for more ideas. emoticon

Classic Green Monster by Angela Liddon @

Prep Time: 5 mins

Keywords: blender raw no bake breakfast beverage vegetarian vegan soy-free gluten-free low sugar nut free option


On January 26, 2009, I gave my two weeks notice at my job. It was a very, very bad week for me and I was at an all-time low in my life. I drank those green monsters every single morning despite everything going on. I imagined that I was Popeye with superhuman strength. And boy did I need it. This is a recipe that I keep coming back to again and again and it never fails me. Enjoy it for a breakfast or snack! (from Angela)

Ingredients (1 serving/2 cups)
•1 cup almond milk, or milk of choice
•1 ripe banana, preferably peeled + frozen
•2 handfuls organic spinach
•1 tbsp chia seeds OR 1 tbsp ground flax
•1 tbsp nut butter (here I used Dark Chocolate Almond Butter)
•1-3 Ice cubes

•Starting with the liquid, add in 1 cup of milk of your choice. Now add in the chia or flax and nut butter. Next, add in the spinach followed by the banana on top. Blend until smooth. Add in your ice cubes and blend some more. Serves 1- about 2 cups.

I don't measure this, I mostly eyeball it, but I have this almost every morning, I just vary the berries so it is different every time..

1 cup rice milk ( or alternative of your choice, almond, rice, or soy)
1 to 2 bananas
1/2 to 1 cup berries fresh or frozen your choice
1/2 to 1 cup coconut yogurt what ever flavor you like
1 tsp of wheat germ or flax seed
some times I will throw in a handful of walnuts, cashews, or some other nut for the protein

I use a Ninja blender, so I throw it all into the blender, and mix till smooth and the thickness you like. Makes enough for two people to have 1 tall glass each with a bit left over,
You might need a bit more rice milk because the coconut yogurt makes it quite thick..

Protein is an important part of my diet so you do not have to add it but it is yummy & it does not hurt anything It's really pretty simple I eyeball amounts so you really can't mess this up it is what you like. I like mine a bit colder so I use frozen Strawberries but you can use fresh they work great too. I have a Ninja blending system I use just a small personal size cup for the amount I can do as much or as little as you want or what you need for your blending device.
You need:
Strawberries Fresh or Frozen
1 Banana
Florida Natural Orange Juice No Pulp OR whatever kind you like
1 small can crushed pineapple
NECTAR brand Protein powder found at Vitamin World Strawberry Kiwi flavor

I put 3/4 my container Strawberries. Then I put 1 kitchen Teaspoon of Protein powder sprinkled on may use as much powder as you like. I then put aprox. 1 Tablespoon pineapple and put aprox. 1 Tablespoon of the juice in. I put the Orange juice in next I fill my container up 1/4 of the way and then break my banana up on the top & blend. If you use fresh berries you may want to chill it a bit it is up to you & your taste enjoy emoticon
