Default Smoothie Receipes Please!

Ok, here's my problem.....I cannot have yogurt at all. And since it seems like yogurt is a main ingredient in a lot of these smoothies, I have been hard pressed to find a receipe that didn't have it in there.

Does anyone have a smoothie receipe that they would like to share that doesn't have yogurt in it? Would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using smoothies as a replacement for meals? Do you need it to have protein or other nutrients? If so, a powdered type shake mix could be used and I believe you only have to add water to them.

here is my green smoothie, I make a variety of this every day.

6 handfuls of spinach or kale, or a combo of both
handful of parsley, some celery, cucumber, avocado or any other veggie on hand.

fruit, oranges, apples, pineapples, berries, kiwis, mangos etc. a banana for creamier smoothies

chia seeds and or flax seeds, a few slices of ginger and or dates.

about 1/2 cup of lemon and lime water, coconut water is to expensive for me.

blend and enjoy. good energy drink, 42 oz, fills me up till lunch.

I would like to use it for breakfast since I'm just not a breakfast person a lot of the times. Don't really want to go the powdered shake mix route as it's usually not very good. I'm really into using fruit smoothies for the most part.

Default Berry Smoothie

I love this smoothie recipe from the book Eat to Live. The recipe makes 2 servings.

1 c. POM pomegranate juice
1/2 c. Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
1/2 c. each frozen blueberries, strawberries, and peaches.
1 banana
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed

Put the juice and milk in the blender first, then add everything else and blend!

I buy the frozen fruit then divide up the recipe into ziploc freezer bags so I can make them quickly in the morning. There are 222 calories per serving and it's delicious!

I use almond milk for my smoothies, sometimes just water, instead of yogurt.

My smoothies consist of 1-1 1/2 c of fruit (strawberries, blueberries, bananas, mangos), either a 1- 1 1/2 tbsp of chia or flax(ground) seeds, and 1/4-1/2 c of almond milk (depending upon how much fruit is in the smoothies).

They fill me up, keep me satisfied, and it's a great way to get my morning going!

Also for the fruit I buy it fresh, clean, then cut up each type of fruit, lay it out on a baking sheet and freeze for 24 hours, then measure out the fruit and put into freezer bags. So when I'm ready for a smoothie, I just dump the bag into my blender, add the seeds and milk, then blend!

Pink Hurricane- Great tip about slicing up and freezing it on a baking sheet first. It would definitely help with the fruits that have been frozen stuck together and possibly avoid that issue by using your method. Thanks so much!!

I definitely echo using a banana to make it a creamy consistency. I often make mine with a combo of spinach and carrots with 1/2 banana and 1-2 types of fruits (usually berries), half applesauce/half water and blend. So good.
