Making smoothies is an easy way to lose weight. Probably one of the key factors as to why I am not over weight like the rest of my siblings. I drink smoothies almost every day. I ad nutrition in the form of powders. Of course I use a vita-mix blender. They are worth the money because they last so long and do such a good job!

    YUM sounds like a good recipe. I bought a blender in the summer and have yet to use it :( I guess now is a good time to bring it out!
