  • I buy the frozen Jama Juice smoothies. I blend it with milk, instead of apple juice, and I add two handfuls of either spinach or kale. My 6 yr old loves it.

  • Smoothies, or juice? LOL

    I love orange juice concentrate with greek yogurt, a splash of apple juice, and some carrot juice!

    As for homemade juice (I know it isn't part of this question) I LOOOVE Purple Power. It's grape, green apple, blackberry, and ginger. YUM.

    Starving now. Thanks.

  • My fave is:

    2 whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown flecks on peel)
    2 cups Ice
    1/3 cup Yogurt - preferably Greek yogurt flavored with honey
    1/2 cup Cooked oatmeal
    1/3 cup Almonds

    But I add spinach, and because I freeze my bananas I substitute a cup or so of milk for the ice.

    I used to make a raspberry/strawberry kind of smoothie, but I can't really remember the proportions....

  • Oh, and for the oatmeal, I cheat and just throw the powder in. The cinnamon roll gives it a nice flavor, but the brown sugar/maple kinds work, too :)
