Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie

A variation on the Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

For fewer calories, try this with the Greek non-fat plain yogurt, and try eliminating some or all of the juices, as both orange and pineapple juice are high in calories and sugar (even to it is natural sugar). The 3/4 cup of juice has about 100 calories and 20 grams of sugar alone.

Ingredients

  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1/2 cup vanilla or strawberry frozen yogurt
  • 3/4 cup blend of pineapple juice & orange juice
Directions

1. Place the banana, strawberries, kiwi, frozen yogurt, and pineapple and orange juice blend in a blender. Blend until smooth.

2. If you'd like, garnish the rim of the glass with a slice of any of the fruits, or use all 3

Fresh Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

A Classic Smoothie Recipe

A Strawberry-Banana Smoothie is the classic combination of fruits as the flavors seems to be ones that go together well and are a combination often used in many dessert recipes. I use non-fat Greek yogurt, as this is the healthiest option in yogurt choices, being highest in protein and lowest in calories.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chilled
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup ice cubes
Directions: Add ingredients to blender, and blend until smooth.

Refreshing, Low-Calorie Smoothie

I try to avoid processed white sugar at all costs, so I recommend using "Truvia" for a sweetener. Orange juice has plenty of natural sugar, so you may want to try this using no added sweetener at all. A very refreshing smoothie!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup cold orange juice
  • 10 ice cubes (you may have to add more or fewer depending on the consistency you want
  • 1 packet of Truvia natural sweetener
Directions

1. In a blender, combine strawberries, orange juice, ice cubes and sugar. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

A Nutritious, Complete Meal

  • 1 banana broken into chunks
  • 14 frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1packet of Truvia

Watermelon Smoothie

An Icy and Refreshing Smoothie

The theme here is pink smoothies, so I've shown several with the ever-favorite strawberry. This watermelon smoothie brings a twist sure to be a summer favorite and is super easy to make. As an added bonus, it's very low in calories, sodium and sugar. You can use fresh or frozen watermelon.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped watermelon
  • 1/4 cup plain or vanilla almond milk
  • 2 cups ice
Directions

In a blender, combine the watermelon and milk, and blend for 15 seconds, or until smooth. Add the ice, and blend 20 seconds longer, or to your desired consistency. Add more ice, if needed, and blend for 10 seconds.

Raspberrry Strawberry Smoothie

Raspberrry Strawberry Smoothie

One thing that's great about smoothies is that you can almost always get away with using frozen fruit as well as fresh, which allows you to buy your berries in season and freeze them so that you can have your smoothies any time of year. In this case we're using frozen fruits.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free vanilla or plain yogurt
Directions

In a blender, combine the raspberries, strawberries, and pineapple juice. Add the yogurt. Blend until smooth.

As you can see, there are a multitude of options for smoothie ingredients. Get creative! Add yogurt, milk, ground flax seeds, flax oil, silken tofu, wheat germ, or protein powder for extra nutrition, antioxidants and fiber. If a smoothie recipe calls for sugar, use Truvia, or try it first without added sweetener. You may not need it. The natural sweetness of the fruit may be sufficient.
