Wanted: Smoothie Recipe's

Apparently the universe thinks I need to A: have a blender and B: be drinking smoothies. Why do I think this?

A. My mom mailed me a blueberry smoothie recipe. I looked at it and thought it sounded good, but since I didn't bring a blender on the road with me, I just put it in my three-ring binder cookbook and called it good.

B. My friend Christina called me the other day and said, "Dude, you have to write this recipe down right now." It was a banana/peanut butter/ prune smoothie recipe.

C. An interesting recipe showed up at Curves a month ago. I'm not even going to say what it was because my husband looked like he may have vomited when I told him. But I'm brave and willing to try it. But, the recipe required a blender...

D. I'm starting to get tired of my egg white breakfasts paired with a glass of water.

E. I discovered another friend of mine blogs, and she had a whole post about her fruit juicer and the awesome breakfasts she and her husband have been having.

So you see, the universe really does want me to have a blender! So, even though I'm pretty sure I have not one, but two blenders already in storage in Oklahoma, I'm going to break down and buy yet another one to have in our house on wheels. Any delicious *healthy* smoothie recipes would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry, Felicia, I just get the Yoplait smoothies at Costco. Just add milk, a pack of smoothie mix (frozen fruit and yogurt chunks) and run on high speed in the blender for about a minute. Done.

I've never heard of those...I'll have to see if they carry them at this Wal-Mart!

How funny, we just started making smoothies a couple of weeks ago!! :) Hubby actually heard about a good recipe at work and so we've been hooked ever since!

*8 oz. fat free soy milk (has fewer calories than skim milk)
*6 oz. fat free yoplait yogurt (strawberry or plain, any of them would be good)
*1 banana (or 1/2, depending on size and if you like them.)
*1/2-1 cup of frozen strawberries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries...any of these are wonderful, but I haven't mixed them all together if you're wondering. :) lol

Blend well and voila, you have yourself a very tastey low cal smoothie! :)

I do have a blender. Used it quite a few times, also to make soups but ever since my last move, it sits there... Hum... Maybe I should bring it back to life... :-)

Blenders make anything other than margaritas and daiquiri's?..Who knew!
