Smoothies, anyone?? Great recipes.

I found some great recipes today for smoothies. Recipes follow. I made the Almost-A-Split Smoothie tonight, and it was delicious. I have others if anyone would like me to post them.


Almost-a-Split Smoothie

2 medium bananas, cut up
1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple (juice pack)
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 cups vanilla or strawberry frozen yogurt

In a blender container, combine bananas, undrained pineapple, thawed concentrate, and, if desired, red food coloring. Cover and blend until smooth. Add frozen yogurt, half at a time, blending until smooth after each addition. If desired, garnish with orange wedges and strawberries. Makes 3 or 4 servings.

Here's another

This one is adapted from one in an older Prevention magazine:

1 scoop soy isolate powder*
2 heaping tablespoons ground flaxseed (if you have a good gutsy blender you can use whole flaxseeds, which keep better)
1/2 to 1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 to 1 cup frozen other berries (strawberries, raspberries, cherries, etc.)
1 orange or a blob of oj concentrate
enough water to make it blendable. The shake with the water combited usually totals 4 1/2 cups for me.

Blend forever until smooth.

* Prevention is now coming down in favor of whole soy instead of the powder, so you're welcome to try some tofu in the shake instead. Let me know how it comes out.

Smoothies

Catherine, I have tried several smoothies this summer and they are delicious. I would love to make my own. The Almost a Split sounds great. If you have more recipes I would love to have them for my collection. In this hot Gulf Coast weather, they are a great light lunch. Thx again.

Do you think that frozen yogurt can be exchanged for vanilla yogurt in these recipes that call for plain yogurt?

I think you can substitute. I used low-fat strawberry yogurt in the Almost a Split smoothie instead of frozen yogurt (only because I didn't have any frozen yogurt). It tasted great. Try it, and let us know.
