    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!

    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.

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!

    AHHH!!! I just got so excited about this. I always want smoothies but my blender is so loud and I feel guilty waking my room mate up. I was going to go with my PB&J smoothie with almond milk, greek yogurt, banana, chocolate Amazing Grass, Peanut butter and frozen raspberries but lately I have been loving another.

    Favorite: frozen banana, Spinach, almond milk, pumpkin, chocolate whey protein, Green Superfood, cinnamon and ice. It is so hearty and replenishing with some granola and almonds on top!

    I’ve got to admit, my favorite recipe is the green monster. I like to add strawberries and pineapple to mine. When I first heard of these I gagged my little heart out. Who would have thought about adding SPINACH to a smoothie?? But they are so goooooood! I’ve actually gotten my dad hooked on them! SCORE!

    – 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.

    I love a mixture of 1 C. almond milk, 1/2 the meat from a young coconut, 1/2 C. frozen pineapple and either 1/2 a banana or 1/2 C cantaloupe. Sometimes a pinch of ginger, sometimes a scoop of vanilla protein powder, sometimes a bit of mint- it’s all delicious!

    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:)

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 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.

    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?

    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).

    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!

Blend it up and enjoy! πŸ™‚

    in a magic bullet sized blender put:
    – 1/2 cup – 1 cup (depending on taste) frozen mangoes
    – 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!

    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.
