I know some of you make your own natural smoothies or shakes. Anyone care to share a recipe?

I will do something like 1/2 c milk, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 cup raw spinach, 1 TBSP peanut butter, and that's right around 250 cals, good for post-workout.

I also do 1/2 c milk, 1 scoop vanilla (or plain) protein powder, 1 cup raw spinach (yes, it goes into every smoothie nowadays!), 3 strawberries, and 1/2 frozen banana (I keep them in the freezer- if I have a few that will go bad, this is my "rescue", same for other fruits).

Check out smoothie recipes on oxygenmag.com, too!  They have great ones.

I do almond milk, 3 TBS of protein powder, blueberries or mixed berries and a banana.  I also throw a cup of spinach in.

One of my favourites is this strawberry and raspberry fruit smoothie:

  • 1 cup  raspberries
  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 tablespoons low fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 3 ice cubes

Optional

  • 1 teaspoon flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter

Here is another good resource for fruit smoothies.
