I just got my very first blender (I've been waiting years to get one) and would love to hear your favorite recipes for smoothies etc. So excited to start using it and want to know what works best for you users!

I love almond milk and one day I decided to break out my old blender just to see what I could whip up.

I buy Earth's Own almond milk unsweetened for my shakes and Silk true almond original for my coffee. The consistency is different, Earth's Own is best for shakes because it's more watery.

My favourite breakfast shake is:
1 glass almond milk
1 banana
1 - 2 cups of frozen berry mix
2 ice cubes

blend for about 20 - 30 seconds and serve. This will give you two glasses of Berry shake. It is delicious.

I am trying to figure out what I could substitute the banana for, I tried cantaloupes but it wasn't as good. Any ideas?

Matcha Green Tea Smoothie:

250g vanilla soy milk
125g ice water
125g cold brewed green tea
1/4 banana
1/3 cup frozen low fat vanilla yogurt
frozen fruit - I use Europes Best Caribbean Blend (2 pc of each fruit)
1 tspn matcha green tea powder
4 ice cubes

I love this smoothie and so does everyone I make it for! I've been irregular for years but within 20 minutes of drinking this I always have a very healthy bowel movement.

I second this one! I make this shake too but I add a BIG handful of spinach to get my veggie servings in. With all the berries in there, you can't even taste the spinach and it stays a nice red/purple color. Yum!

2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup of egg whites
1 cup of spinach
ice and water

Mmmmmmmmmmmm! :)

made this Blueberry Oatmeal smoothie this morning. It makes about 6 ounces I guess and kept me full for 2.5 hours. I will probably add 1/4 cup of water tomorrow as it i had to add water to the last bit in the glass to get it out. Too thick to drink the last bits-lol-

1/2 Cup Almond Breeze Vanilla milk
1.5TBSP frozen wild blueberries
1/4 cup quick oats
1 TBSP 0% Greek Yogurt Vanilla flavour (pc brand)

Puree!

Whey protein and water. Maybe add some peanut butter.

...and maybe a little bacon too. Yeah, that should be good.

Green Monster!

1.5-2 cups of spinach
1 cup of almond milk
1/4 cup yogurt
1 sliced banana
5-6 ice cubes

If you like peanut butter you must get PB2 powder (low cal/low fat powdered natural pb) to add to smoothies! It's like a Reeses PB cup in a drink if you add it to chocolate whey protein (blend with ice!)

1 c. water
1 1/2 handfuls raw spinach
1/8 c. fresh basil
1/4-1/3 bunch parsley
1/2 c. pineapple
1/2 orange
1/2 banana

YUMMY!!!

P.S. You can add protein powder (like Sun Warrior Warrior Blend and/or raw egg(s) to this for protein.

I also recently treated myself to a new blender, and made a smoothie well worth passing on. I used a (vanilla) whey protein powder I got at Costco, but that would be optional. I also used 3/4 cup flax milk (almond milk or dairy milk would work fine too), 1 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup blackberries, handful of ice cubes. With the protein powder, it was under 300 cals. Without it, it would be under 150 cals, and a fantastic evening treat, or afternoon pick-me-up.

@RoboLikes:

I'd like to try that one. Do you measure the spinach totally loose, or semi-packed, or what?
May 10, 2012 6:59 PM
Yep there's an app for that!

found one for smoothie recipes and one for fruit smoothies.

You don't really have to measure it out, two good handfuls should do the trick. If you are going to measure it, then pack it down. Hope you like it!

My absolute fave is:

8-10 Fresh strawberries
1 Banana
A couple pieces of fresh pineapple
Cranberry juice
and a tray of ice cubes

(I add Agave if it's more tart)

Sometimes I add in spinach & protein powder.

SO. GOOD. :D

I dont have exact measurements, but my favorite is a mix of

Light Chocolate Soy Milk
Frozen Strawberries (if they're frozen, then they act as the ice and you don't need to add any ice cubes to the mix)
Bananas
Pineapple
