Smoothie Measurements

You will have to experiment a little bit at first to get your desired taste. When all the ingredients are in the blender it will be at least 3/4 full. This consist of 1 to 1 1/2 cups of frozen fruit(strawberries, blueberries or mixed berries from Costco), a cup organic unsweetened plain yogurt with live bacteria culture, enough unsweetened apple juice to just cover fruit in blender, one avocado, one scoop fiber powder and 1 to 1 1/2 scoops of vanilla protein powder. Once you get good at making homemade smoothies you will never go out and pay the big bucks for smoothies again.

Investing in your health is never a waste of time or energy. Finding quick, easy, inexpensive and enjoyable ways to do it is the key. Every wise step you take to optimizing your health will lead to a long and healthy life. Healthy smoothies several times a week are one step in the right direction.

This sounds great! Springfield, OR, has a local yogurt company, "Nancy's," which makes the best cultured yogurt and dairy products around. Check 'em out: http://www.nancysyogurt.com/

When I was trying to gain weight I used to drink shakes with breakfast made with; eggs, yogurt, OJ, and chocolate instant breakfast. I didn't gain weight, but they sure were good!

Great hub!

Yum! I'd forgotten all about smoothies--thanks for the reminder. I'm considering posting a series of weight-loss/exercise hubs to keep myself honest w/photos---that way if I fail I'll have to answer to my Hub friends. I'm not obese, but I'm heavier than I was when I was younger and some encroaching health issues have me thinking about getting back on it. This is very helpful. Thanks again!

Smoothies are the real deal! Here's our family recipe (serves 2);

100g of Muesli (blend this dry until fine)

1 x Decidious fruit (apple, pear etc.)

1 x tropical fruit (papaya, banana, mango, etc.)

1 x serving of protein powder

500ml low fat milk

Sounds good, thanks for sharing! I'll give it a shot tomorrow morning (plenty of fruit lying around here). Just a bit worried about the eggs and I'll have to cut them out. Here in the UK the doctors recommend against eating raw eggs. Apparently too risky nowadays :(

Thanks for your comment oioioi! That's a good point about eggs. I don't use them anymore either.
