    Clearly any kind of green monster is my fave smoothie, since you get 2-3 servings of veggies in a smoothie! But I love to do a “Mexican” chocolate GM, by adding Chocolate Amazing Meal, a tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, and a couple shakes of cinnamon! Yum!

  • Caroline

    I love the cherry chocolate bomb, but my slightly cheaper go-to is half a frozen banana, two large handfuls of spinach, a scoop of Ovaltine (poor girls’ chocolate super food) and a few splashes of water. I need a magic bullet! I hate washing my blender everyday.

  • Jessica

  • Angie

    I have wanted one of these forever!! So excited. My favorite is simple yet delicious: 1/2 frozen banana, greek yogurt (I don’t measure, so we’ll say a “dollop”), almond milk (more than a “splash”), water and two hefty handfuls of spinach. Once in awhile I get crazy and add other frozen fruit too. Simple and delicious! Perfect for an IBS sufferer who can’t handle too much by way of raw vegetables, even spinach!

    My favorite smoothie is my delicious PB banana breakfast creation. Into the blender goes 1 frozen nana, 1 cup skim milk, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 1 Tbsp chia, 1 Tbsp flax and a dash of vanilla. Sometimes I add a scoop of chocolate protein powder if I am feeling adventurous πŸ˜‰ This smoothie is sooooo good, like an old-timey milkshake, and it keeps me full for HOURS!

    Honestly, I’m still in love with Green Monsters. Into my food processor goes: a sliced banana, lots of baby spinach, ground flaxseed, a scoop of unsweetened vanilla protein powder (this stuff has been difficult for me to find!), and almond milk. It’s so energizing that I don’t even “need” my coffee- I’m free to drink coffee for the sake of enjoyment. Love that!

    My favorite smoothie is a green monster. I know most wouldn’t consider this their favorite but I have become so obsessed with them. I use an insanely amount of spinach, banana, flax, milk, vanilla protein mix, and frozen berries. If I am in the mood for more of a banana milkshake I add 2 bananas and lose the berries. Another good one is banana, milk, and clementines. So good and refreshing.

    What an awesome contest, Jenna!! πŸ˜€

    I think my all-time favorite smoothie recipe has to be a creation I came up with:

    Blueberry Blackstrap Bomb Smoothie Recipe

    Ingredients:

    – ice cubes
    – 1 tablespoon of freshly ground flax seeds
    – 2 tablespoons of hemp powder
    – a banana
    – handful frozen blueberries
    – 2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
    – about half a cup or so of blackstrap molasses water I keep in the fridge (more on this in a future post). But it would be 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses in a cup of water for you.

    Directions:

    – Toss everything in to the blender, blend until smoothly combined, pour, and enjoy this blast of energizing deliciousness! πŸ˜€

    (I blogged about it here, with photos and steps.)

    Our easy standby is to throw in some frozen fruits (mango, strawberry, banana, peach, pineapple, blueberry, etc it doesn’t matter they all taste good, together or alone!), some nonfat plain yogurt, splash of juice and blend.. easy and yum. You can always throw in some spinach, use water instead of juice, etc. There are no measurements πŸ™‚

    Hi Jenna! I would loooove a magic bullet. I was never a huge smoothie person until recently. Now I make them all the time…..using my shoddy broken blender. (It’s my fault – I dropped it.) I am training for a marathon and drink this chocolate-peanut butter- banana version after my long runs. I read where chocolate milk or peanut butter and banana are both great to have after a long run because they both have a 4:1 carb to protein ratio. I mixed the two together for the ultimate recovery drink. It tastes like a milkshake!

    Sarah’s Favorite Recovery Drink

    * 1 cup skim milk
    * 2 1/2 T. cocoa powder
    * 1 T peanut butter (I used smooth)
    * 1/2 banana
    * few cubes of ice

    Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and frothy. Drink and enjoy!

    Sometimes I also add in a few handfuls of spinach:)

    Hi Jenna! I would loooove a magic bullet. I was never a huge smoothie person until recently. Now I make them all the time…..using my shoddy broken blender. (It’s my fault – I dropped it.) I am training for a marathon and drink this chocolate-peanut butter- banana version after my long runs. I read where chocolate milk or peanut butter and banana are both great to have after a long run because they both have a 4:1 carb to protein ratio. I mixed the two together for the ultimate recovery drink. It tastes like a milkshake!

    Sarah’s Favorite Recovery Drink

    * 1 cup skim milk
    * 2 1/2 T. cocoa powder
    * 1 T peanut butter (I used smooth)
    * 1/2 banana
    * few cubes of ice

    Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and frothy. Drink and enjoy!

    Sometimes I also add in a few handfuls of spinach:)

    My favorite smoothie is actually a bit boring but comforting –
    UVAB, vanilla protein, banana, flax and ice … and now xanthum and guar gum. I also add spinach sometimes for the “green monster”. I typically add a stevia packet and a bit of vanilla extract when adding the spinach.

    1 TBS flax

    So many great recipes to be inspired by! I like a fairly traditional green smoothie: almond milk, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, a protein powder like Amazing Meal, and a couple handfuls of spinach. The best kind though are the ones my 5 year old son helps me make. He loves to add the spinach, which he will drink in the smootie but won’t eat as a leaf.

    I’ve never written before as I like to consider myself a “closet ELR reader”….but I felt compelled given my passion for the smoothie. Try this bad boy out for size:

    1 whole frozen bananna
    1/3 cup blueberries
    1/4 cup rasberries (optional)
    1/2 cup FF greek yogurt
    handfull of ice
    3/4 cup water

    I am an avid reader but have never posted but feel so compelled to share my absolute love for smoothies. I typically eat at least one a day and always after a run.
    I usually throw in some yogurt (either vanilla, or banilla, or greek) dump in some fruit (peaches, strawberries, mangoes, raspberries, blueberries, – always frozen) splash of milk, and spinach! sometimes. I never do measurements. Just eyeball everything and add until it tastes great!
    Any combination of fruit depending on what I have available.

    Love the blog!

  • Alaina @ Alaina Goes Abroad

    It definitely has to have a nice ripe banana in it. Then strawberries and/or other berries are good. Other than that, greens are good & chia seeds, flax seeds & protein powder round it out.

    I love Amazing Grass chocolate meal, Almond Breeze Chocolate (you sense a theme?) banana, spinach, flaxseed, and peppermint flavour. If one wanted to get a little crazy and not healthy, I love the Fuze Banana Colada flavour, with an extra banana, rum, and some spinach. It sounds crazy but tastes amazing.

    I am not a smoothie person…but I think it would nice on occasion for a sip. So a bullet would be nice. And something free..oh god, that is overwhelmingly beautiful to have!
    I can barely afford a shower curtain!!

    I suppose 1 cup+ vanilla hemp milk, 2 TBSps almond butter, 1/2 cup oats, 1 banana, 1 cup berries, flaxseed, coconut oil, cocoa powder…and then added on top would be granola and chocolate chips…
    at least that is what seems to be popular, so why not?

    Smoothies?! You bet!

    My recipe depends on my mood. If I’m feeling fruity I’ll use vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries, bananas, and orange juice. On the other hand, I might be feeling sweet and a bit nutty in which case I use vanilla greek yogurt with light chocolate soy milk and peanut butter and perhaps some chocolate protein powder. Yummmm!

  • Maddy
    April 27, 2010 at 2:00 pm

  • WendyF
    April 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Icy strawberry ice cream –
    frozen strawberries, cottage cheese, milk, ice, vanilla extract and a bit of xanthan gum and sweetener (agave or stevia). And then sometimes I add in vanilla protein powder, but if I don’t have any on hand, it’s just as good, if not better, without !
    I always seem to make too much though, which is a problem with the large blender…maybe a magic bullet would help me control my portion (or not).

    Love this giveaway!
    …and reading all of those yummy smoothie recipes πŸ™‚

    my go-to recipe is similar to a few of the banana + chocolate protein powder/amazing meal recipes up there, so how about a different one? it’s not my everyday smoothie, but when I want something different I use this:

    1c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
    2c. spinach (raw or steamed and cooled)
    1/2 frozen banana
    2T almond butter (or any nut butter)
    1 scoop berry flavored Daily Greens powder (or 1/2 c. fresh or frozen berries)
    1/8 tsp. xanathan gum
    1/8 tsp. guar gum
    ** gums are optional, but make the smoothie really frothy and smoooooth!
    ice and water as necessary

    just blend it all up – tastes like a PB&J!

    in a magic bullet sized blender put:

    – 1 tbsp chia seeds
    – 1/2 cup – 1 cup OJ (depending on how thick you like it)
    – 1/2 cup pasteurized egg whites
    – stuff the rest of the space with spinach leaves (approx 2 Cups)

    This can also be done with the addition of protein powder instead of egg whites but you might need to increase the juice or add in some water

    Tropical and Delicious!

  • Sharon
    April 27, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    My favorite and go to smoothie recipe is a take on the Green Monster. I take a large handful of kale and a large handful of spinach, microwave it for 2-3 minutes and stick it in the blender. I add a small frozen banana (frozen in slices for easier blending), some plain almond milk (about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup) and a tablespoon of chia seeds. I normally wait for the bananas to go really ripe (like banana bread ripe) before slicing and freezing them so that the natural sugars make my smoothies super sweet but with no added sugar.

    im colombian so i grew up drinking the common tropical fruit smoothies of latin america. its common to take milk and somewhat exotic frozen fruit purees to make these amazing batidos
    i really like frozen mango puree, soymilk (in colombia we use full fat dairy milk but i like soy) and some agave nectar
    simple but so good….its thick and delicious… tastes like a milkshake

I interviewed for a position as a sales representative for a healthy living company last month and one of their specialties is smoothies. Lucky me…during my interview I was given a complimentary smoothie of my choice. I decided on the Blueberry Muffin smoothie. It was INCREDIBLE!! I waited until the interview was over to fully enjoy this and literally sucked it down like a milkshake once I was in the car. It was to die for!

    Smoothie’s are a SNEAKY way to get your 1.5 year old to eat spinach, flax seed and other goodies she would most definitely throw off her plate! For my Baby Willow I mix:
    *Monsterous handful of spinach
    *handful of frozen mango, strawberries, blueberries
    *1/2cup full-fat yogurt (she’s a babe…she can handle it!)
    *healthy splash almond milk
    *1/2 frozen ‘naner

    She sucks down that green stuff like nobody’s business and I’m a proud, happy Momma πŸ™‚

    Hi Jenna,
    I have never commented on your blog before but I have a great smoothie recipe I would like to share. Here are the ingredients:
    1 medium frozen banana
    Β½ cup of frozen blueberries
    1 Β½ cups vanilla soy milk
    2 scopes protein powder
    2 tablespoons almond butter
    Β½ cup of leftover coffee or 4-5 coffee ice cubes
    Throw everything in a blender and pulse until smooth.
    I came up with this recipe because my job doesn’t always allow me time to sit down and eat lunch. This is affordable and is addition/substitution friendly. Sometimes I throw in a tablespoon of Nutella if I am having a bad chocolate craving :).
    Thank you for your wonderful blog!

    1 cup vanilla rice milk or soy milk, ice, guar gum, 3 cups spinach, 1-2 tsp cocoa or carob powder, frozen cherries, and I usually add a touch of agave or maple syrup. It’s DELICIOUS!!!

    1c mixed frozen berries (esp raspberries!)

    I made my first green monster this week. I wanted something simple so i just put 2 big handfuls of spinach and 12 ounces of milk. I used my immersion mixer, but it doesn’t seem to blend the spinach as smooth as I wanted. Still got a couple mouthfuls of spinach. But it tasted great though!

  • Tracy
    April 28, 2010 at 6:49 am

    Every morning I make a smoothie. It must have a scoop of Amazing Grass, ground flax seed, stevia and banana. To change it up, each day a second fruit is added. A few cubes of ice, a little water, and we are ready to go! Yum…

    I do love smoothies!! In fact, I am drinking one right now. It consists of a little orange juice, a banana, strawberries, blackberries, kale, and a scoop of peanut butter. Delicious!!

    Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, honey, flaxseed, maybe a little bit of fruit juice? And ice if the fruit’s not frozen. I just throw in what I have – I rarely make the same thing twice!

    My favorite healthy smoothie is vanilla almond milk, spinach, flaxseed, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, vanilla protein powder and ice. Tastes like cake batter!

    My favorite smoothie is pretty boring, but I love it. Frozen strawberries and bananas, plain fat free yogurt, a little skim milk, and a little agave nectar.

  • Kinder

    Our kid friendly standby is strawberry-banana – frozen strawberries, a whole banana, some vanilla yogurt and a splash of juice.

    Although there are many excellent smoothie receipes, my favorite would have to be the simple variety my mother always made when I was young. Blending about a cup of fresh fruit you have on hand, with a banana, little milk, and ice and topped with nutmeg. Reminds me of hot summer days!

    I like a strawberry banana smoothie with yogurt, protein powder and lots of ice. I’d like to get brave and try adding spinach but we’ll see;)

    I’m a smoothie girl on an {almost} daily basis! My favorite recipe (when everything’s in season) is the following:

    frozen banana (about 1/3-1/2)
    frozen blueberries (~1c)
    V8 Fruit Fusion Acai Mixed Berry (~1c?)
    Flax Seed (couple tablespoons)
    LOTS of spinach (LOTS)
    Spoonful of tofu
    pomegranate seeds (as many as I have on hand!!)

    Sooooooo good! It is SO refreshing… I take them to class just about every day… but I do have to explain what I’m drinking all the time. Something about the spinach in it tends to make people think it’s going to taste bad. I’ve tried to convince them otherwise, but so far I’ve only won over my husband. Oh well – their loss:)

    For something lite I love half a cucumber, 4oz water, packet of Truvia, and juice of one lime. For something to keep me full its vanilla protein powder, half chopped frozen apple (w/peel) and lots of cinnamon in almond milk or water. Super tasty!

    1/2c almond milk + 1/2c water (if needed) + 1 handful of spinach + 1T of nut butter + cocoa powder + vanilla protein powder + 1 frozen banana = the smoothie of my dreams!

    Another good one is 1/2c pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, agave, frozen banana, almond milk & water, vanilla protein powder, 1tsp vanilla extract, 1/3c uncooked old fashioned oats (trust me on this). Tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup! And it keeps me full for hours – it’s the oats, just trust me!

    Ooo! I love the magic bullet! My favorite recipe is: frozen blueberries, splash of soymilk, and banana.

    Also, if you warm up sweet potato and blend it with a splash of soymilk, it tastes smooth as pudding πŸ˜‰
