This morning's concoction...

175g plain greek yogurt (3/4cup)
1 tray ice cubes
20g choc whey isolate
2Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
15g peanut flour, defatted
150g frozen strawberries
4 cups spinach
4oz each almond milk and water

This was enormous. Truthfully, enough for 2 huge servings. But at 354 calories I ate it all (took me about 25 minutes)... blushing It was great fuel for my hard workout today. 50g of protein and 12g of fiber, too.

4 cups romaine (sometimes its kale)
4 cups spinach
1 frozen banana
1-2 cups frozen fruit (i like to use mango and pineapple)

So I tried to make a Green Smoothie this morning and failed completely! The ingredients I wanted were 2 cups baby spinach, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and 1/2 cup plain fat free greek yogurt.

Do you put the ingredients into the blender in a certain order? Because mine would not blend the spinach in AT ALL! :( Any suggestions? Thanks!!


I have a Blendtec blender and add the spinach first.

1/3rd cup fresh or canned pineapple chunks
1/2 - 1 cup baby spinach
1 frozen banana
1/8th cup green tea or unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Ice if needed

~ 200 - 250 calories

I have tried some other green smoothie recipes, but this combination has been my favorite so far.

I have 2 favorites currently they each make 2 large servings or 4 smaller, I divide them up into 4 mason jars and have a.m. and p.m smoothie for 2 days. I also prepare the night before and keep in fridge to let flavor blend
recipes are
**pumpkin pie smoothie** (total calories for entire recipe 400 calories, may vary according to protein powder)

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1- 15oz can of pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
a 5oz bag of spring mix lettuces ( about 3 cups worth)
1 cup baby spinach (some spring mixes include spinach, mine did not)
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice ( more or less to taste)
2 packets of stevia in the raw
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
I also add water to thin out more but amount varies

recipe 2
***peanut butter and jelly*** (total calories for entire recipe 479)
2 cups almond milk unsweetened
1- 5oz bag of spring mix about 3 cups packed
1 cup spinach
2 cups grapes
2 bananas
2 tablespoons pb2

use frozen fruit or not mine doesn't matter as I make night before and refrigerate. the Pb & j is a variation on a recipe from simple green smoothies website. theirs is with almond butter.

I hope you enjoy

An old favorite (when my Health Master blender still worked) was:

Baby spinach, romaine lettuce, frozen mango, frozen green grapes, wheat grass and 1/2-1 banana. YUM YUM! Just remembering it makes me want one! Stupid piece of poop blender.

I have been experimenting with green smoothies lately and this is by far my favorite:

1 medium banana
1 small peach
10 almonds (ground)
1 tablespoon flax seeds (ground)
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup almond milk/ milk / or water
1 handful spinach

for extra protein boost I add 1 scoop of protein powder and or 1 tablespoon almond butter

You can always add more liquid based on how thick you like your smoothie and add more spinach

you all need to get the nutribullet ! With a regular juicer or blender, you will never get the same result as with the nutribullet. I bouthgt it 4 weeks ago and since then have has great smoothies, green and fruity. it is so easy and quick and tastes delicious! Its such an easy way of eating healthy and within your calorie range. I eat about 3 times more veggies and fruit than i did before. The best thing is that it gets the metabolism going ( i always had a slow one), it feels great. The smoothies are easy on the stomach and just taste delicious.

My sister lost weight simple with the bullet.

I have between 1-3 bullets a day and i feel great.
My husband is also totally in love with it and we end up trying so many receipes , it is so much fun.

I was sceptical when i bought it, yet wanted to ry it out. Now i can not imagine to live without it , seriously !
I wake up in the morning , excited what i can blend this time and am always surpsied when i found a new cool recipe
