Smoothie Recipes

I got a new kitchenaid blender for my birthday and since then I've been making shakes and smoothies (since my old blender could never handle that). Does anyone have any other smoothie recipes that they would like to share - the only kind I am making is with strawberries or mixed fruit (frozen) and juice with milk or yogurt. My hubby & dd just love them! Thanks!

I make a very basic smoothie (similar to yours nikkiev). I take 1-2 very ripe bananas, a big handful of frozen fruit (usually strawberries and blueberries, sometimes mangoes and raspberries), throw a big dollop of non-fat plain yogurt into the blender and then add about 1/2 c of juice. Blend it all up and its enough for two.

I like the sweetness of this smoothie, its like a fruit shake and very filling.

I need some new smoothie recipes too - perhaps someone will enlighten us.

You can substitute fruit juice for the liquid, and add silken tofu instead of yogurt. But either way is good.

Here's a recipe that's a big hit in our house. It uses a mixture of flavors to build texture and flavor depth.

1 brick silken tofu
1 cup apple juice
1 carrot, peeled
1 apple, cored but with peeling intact, quartered
1 pear, cored with peeling intact, quartered
1 banana
1/4 cup Splenda Sweetener
1/2 cup fresh strawberries (optional)

Anther great combination uses yogurt and fruit, along with some spices to give it zip.
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup apple juice
1/ cup raspberries
2 apples, cored and quartered
2 ripe plumbs, pitted
1 carrot, peeled and quartered
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
a dash of ginger
2 bananas

Savory Smoothie
2 fresh tomatoes
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stalk celery
2 tbs. fresh cilantro
1 tbs. onion powder
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp. black pepper (optional)
1 tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
2 halapino or chipotle peppers
dash of cayenne pepper
a dash of Tobasco sauce
2 cups V8 or tomato juice
1 tbs. Lime juice (optional)
Serve over ice cubes

I don't have a recipe but I do make smoothies several times a week for myself and my DH. I put in the blender a ripe banana (sometimes a frozen one), a 6 oz. container of lite flavored yogurt of choice, a big handful) of frozen fruit of choice (mixed berries, peach, mango, pineapple or combo of all) and add 1% milk to desired consistency - which for us is pretty thick. It's a great breakfast!
