Fabulous Fruit Smoothie

Fabulous Fruit Smoothie:

1-1 1/2 cups of ice ( I use Sonic ice)

a handful of frozen dark sweet cherries

a handful of frozen pineapple chunks

a medium banana

V-8 Splash Fruit Medley Juice (1-2 cups or around there)

Blend it all up until smooth. This is sooooo good!! And with the V-8 you are getting some veggies too!! Rachel loves it, so you know it’s gotta be good!

Happy Smoothie making!


Some Like it Tart Smoothie

1/2c.  concentrated lime juice mix (in the freezer section)

handful of frozen sweet cherries (in freezer section)

about 1c. frozen chunk pineapple (guess where!)

1 banana sliced

1c. ice (I use Sonic ice)

1c. vanilla low fat yogurt

Blend it all up and share (it makes enough for two glasses). Rach gave it two thumbs up!

Banana Split Smoothie

I came up with this smoothie as a way to use a few cans of SlimFast that I had lying around. It was a little thinner than I usually like it, because I was afraid to use too much ice (see my previous post about my blender). It was VERY good, and actually good for me!

Banana Split smoothie:

1 can SlimFast chocolate shake (you could use the powder too, I’m sure)

1 banana

1/2 – 1 cup of frozen pitted cherries

1c. of ice (more or less depending on how think you want it)

Put it all in the blender and blend the heck out of it. SO GOOD!!

Strawberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie

Gina has inspired me to make smoothies! This is one that I tried today, and it really came out good.

In a blender put:

Some ice (I used Sonic ice,  probably a cup to a cup and a half.)

1c. lowfat vanilla yogurt (I bought a big thing of it and just spooned it out)

1 banana sliced

4 strawberries sliced

Blend well and enjoy!

Note: this made enough for Rachel and I to each have a glass.

Gina has also added pineapple to hers, and that is good too (I just didn’t add that this time).
