Fruit Smoothie Recipes

i have really been falling in love with smoothies/blended fruit and i wanted to share my combos and try other peoples fruit combos

i have not yet tried adding yogurt to these, but i might!!

1. my first one that i really love has:
- raspberries
- black berries
- strawberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1 plum

i don't remember how many strawberries i put in. if you get the small black berry/ raspberry packages, i use a 1/3 of them per drink. i think a 1/2 of banana is enough or else there is too much banana taste! i am also thinking about making fruit roll ups in the dehydrator with this combo


2. this one i made today
- strawberries
- 1 nectarine (or peach if you prefer)
- 1/2 banana


whats your recipe?

I usually put a few pieces of frozen mango in my smoothies. Strawberry, mango, banana, and blueberry are my favorite smoothie ingredients.

Adding quick oats also makes smoothies thick and adds fiber.

I'm currently on the Slimming World Extra Easy diet and it's working wonders but the one thing I HATE about it is the fact that I have to have smoothies as part of my 15 daily syns! And they're quite a few syns too I still have them though Hope to pick up some good ideas!

I buy ripe bananas, peel them, wrap them in plastic wrap, then in foil, and freeze them. I like frozen bananas better then fresh in a smoothie and they keep a long time in the freezer.

i had a "smoothie movie" night with a friend the other day and we tried some odd fruits like the cactus pears, dragon fruit and another one that i can't remember the name. i didn't like the taste of any of them the dragon fruit is beautiful though…
(not my pic)


i made a new combo though:
lots of mango and pineapple, strawberries, and a little bit of orange. i love pineapple!!

I love the pic of the Dragon Fruit! I've never seen the inside before! What does it taste like?
Do the birds like it?

I thought the dragon fruit was kind of bland, maybe a little sweet. If you cut it lengthwise, you can peel the red part off (no need to cut it off). I'm not sure if the birds can have it

The smoothly recipes sound good. I'll have to try them. I don't think I would put yogurt in though.

Well thats because yogurt is nasty. Sometimes I put powdered milk in them but just enought to make it frothy, not enough to taste it. You dont want to taste it, because powdered milk is nasty to. hahaha.

I put greek yogurt in my smoothies and it's great I like yogurt though.

This is the smoothie recipe I have almost every morning:

1 cup of rice or almond milk
1 cup of frozen mixed berries (raspberry, strawberry, blackberry and blueberry)
1/3 cup Fage yogurt
1 scoop of no carb protein powder
1/2 frozen banana
1 level tsp of spirulina powder (you can't taste it)

This recipe makes over 2 cups.

I also buy my bananas in bulk, peel them and put them in a gallon ziploc bag (about 7 per bag) lay them flat. I usually make 2 - 3 bags at a time. Frozen bananas make your smoothie thicker, I like the stick to your ribs kind of smoothie rather than a watery type.

One half frozen banana
1 c almond milk or cow's milk
1 c frozen cherries
1/3 c red cabbage
Sweetener if wanted, but I like my smoothies without added sweetness.

You can't taste the cabbage. I recently started adding veggies in because, why not add more vitamins.
