The name "smoothee" or "smoothie" was used by books, magazines, and newspapers for a product made in blenders.

Bananas have plenty of potassium. They add volume and thickness to your smoothies.

1 large frozen banana

2 cups milk

Toss everything into a blender and process for 30 seconds.

Variations: Use yogurt instead of milk. Add honey.Try 1 cup of yogurt and 1 cup fresh orange juice for a creamsicle smoothie. In place of banana use a peach or a handful of strawberries.

1 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup almond milk

      Yes, Audrey, you're correct. I need to think up a green tea smoothie. I think green tea is so refreshing.

      I'd love a smoothie right now, too! They look marvelous....must make a bookmark and come back to enjoy! They really are a great addition to someone who needs a little extra in their diet - or those of us who just need to sit and slurp at our computers!

      Ethel, thank you for the comment. It really is a tasty, healthy choice. Gee, I sound like a commercial. Ha.

      Indian cooking, I love smoothies, too. I have one most mornings when I get up and share it with my son. My blender is broken now, so it is imperative that I get a new one. In a pinch, I can use my food processor. Thanks for the post.
