Contributorgold Bill S Just Peachy

Fat-free vanilla ice cream makes this dish sinful and slimming. Skip the spoonful of sugar for a healthier pick.
SERVINGS: 2
1 c 1% milk
2 Tbsp low-fat vanilla yogurt
½ c frozen peaches
½ c strawberries
⅛ tsp powdered ginger
2 tsp whey protein powder
3 ice cubes
1. BLEND together any liquid ingredients (milk, yogurt, juice, etc.) and protein powder; this will help break down the grainy powder and make sure it's evenly distributed.
2. ADD mushy ingredients, like precooked oatmeal and fruit, then add ice at the end. For a thicker shake, you can toss in more ice cubes; you'll add volume without the calories.

Contributorgold Colleen O I'm sure many of you have already discovered this, but coconut milk in replace of plain water or normal milk is awesome for smoothies!

Sarah C Smoothie Recipes  Tribe

Contributorgold Sarah C Another one I randomly put together today which turned out great! I'm not sure if it's a smoothie or just thick juice but it tastes great and there is no added sugar!
Ingredients:
Watermelon pieces
1/4 cucumber
1 lime squeezed
makes a blender full

20140822125927-sc17

LOL I don't remember or didn't really measure. I used the watermelon for the base. So as much as you can fit in your blender without overflowing it.

I have heard that. We have had it on sandwiches and in salads. My juicer has started collecting dust again. I want one of those smaller ones. Mine is an old monster that I hate cleaning:P

Jenn B encouraged this.

20140524165016-jennb2

I had a juicer and ended up chucking it...to much hassle. I just use my blender. Mind you I'm on my 3rd one, but works quickly and just rinse it out and good to go.
