Question Smoothie recipe-P1?

Can someone give me a good smoothie recipe for Phase 1? I really need to get my dairy servings in and thought a smoothie made with plain yogurt would be good for me but, I have to have it sweetened with something and I have no idea what to put in it.

Can someone help? Please!

Thanks!

I really enjoy ff plain yogurt, milk, ice and no sugar drink mix blended together.

I usually use about a half cup of ff yogurt, half cup of milk (ff or 1%) a handful or two of ice cubes and a dash of no sugar drink mix (like Crystal Light -- the strawberry orange banana is great!). Add the drink mix to taste, you can just stir it in after you are finished blending. If you're drinking the smoothie as a meal, I would add a few 1 oz. tofu cubes for protein, silken soft of course, it doesn't have flavor and will add great protein to keep you full. Don't be scared of tofu! Embrace the wonders of tofu!

Have fun.

When P2 hits,you can add strawberries and bananas if you wish...

You can also use SF Jello powder for taste and colour. Add Eggbeaters Egg Whites only if you want to increase the protein.

Or you can go the chocolate route with the chocolate cheesecake smoothie that is in the PH1 breakfast recipes. I really like that one.

You can make good smoothies with herbal tea "extracts" - just make the tea really strong and freeze it in icecube trays. Hibiscus is my favorite. It has a beautiful ruby color, and a tart flavor with a berry like aroma. To sweeten, I use stevia leaf. You can steep it right in the tea. It only takes a tiny pinch because stevia is soooo sweet. It also has no calories, and registers 0 on the Glycemic Index (won't raise blood sugar!) You can also find stevia in powder and liquid form in health food stores, but I prefer to make my own by just steeping the leaf like tea - much cheaper too!

Straight hibiscus can be harder to find. I get mine (and stevia leaf) at FoodieLoot (online). You can google them.

To make the smoothie, just blend the ice cubes into your yogurt to taste, or until your blender tells you to stop! Cheers!
