I love smoothies, especially fruit smoothie recipes.

The pluses to fruit smoothies are threefold – they are easy to make, taste GREAT and can be very healthy for you.

Low cal fruit smoothies are easy to make with low fat yogurt and fruits.

You can also make unsweetened smoothies, great for weight watchers and diabetics.\

Mango Smoothie Delight

1 large ripe mango
8 to 10 strawberries
1 banana
1/2 cup milk, water or yogurt

Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth, the smoothie will be quite thick

Serves 1 or 2

Banana Smoothie

1/4 cup orange juice
4 bananas
3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
3 tablespoons of plain yogurt

Cut the bananas into pieces and put them in the blender. Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Makes 3 servings

Variation:

  • If you don’t mind the extra bit of sugar, add 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup for a chocolate banana smoothie.

Protein “Power Up”

I love protein powder in a smoothie because it becomes breakfast in a glass! Try it.

12 ounces milk
1 scoop protein powder
1 cup flavored yogurt
1 banana

Mix all ingredients into a blender. Add some ice for a cold smoothie.

Makes 2 servings

Tip:

  • You can add a scoop of whatever fruit you want to this smoothie or leave it as is for a fresh banana taste. Frozen or fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mango or peaches are absolutely delicious. Experiment and see what your favorites are.

General Smoothie Tips:

  • If smoothie seems too thick, just add a bit of low fat milk or water and blend again.
  • Freeze over ripe bananas and use them to thicken your smoothies if you want a dairy free version.
  • Any smoothie can be made dairy free or sugar free. Use fruit juices or water to add to protein powder and fruit for a dairy free smoothie, and use all sugar free ingredients for a sugarless smoothie.
  • Ice cubes added to the blender with the other ingredients will give you a thick, icy cold smoothie.
  • A tip for diabetics – Obviously diabetics have to watch the amount of fruit they eat/drink. I suggest NOT using fruit juice to thin the smoothie. I use yogurt and/or water.

    Originally submitted to Cookingnook.com by anjali verma(Canada).
     
    All you need is – 1 banana, 1/2 cup yogurt,and 1/2 cup water.
     
    Start by breaking the banana into 2 or 3 pieces. Next add the yogurt,and add the water(put all the ingredients in the mixer, you don’t have to use a bowl at all).
     
    Now mix until there are no banana chunks, or yogurt chunks left, the color might not be that yellow but thats ok. Finally pour into a glass and enjoy, remembering that it’s healthy for you 2!
