Iced Coffee (Unchained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.4/5
(79 ratings)

Faster, cheaper and just as rich and delicious but so much more healthy than the restaurant versions. Try substituting the unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze almond milk for a chocolately treat.

Un-Chained Recipe Contest: Banana Berry Smoothie
Very Good 4.5/5
(21 ratings)

I used to love grabbing smoothies, until I stumbled across the nutrition facts! I was really in shock when I looked up the nutritional information for my favorite smoothie, the jamba juice banana berry smoothie. The smoothie can contain up to 560 calories, and GET THIS, 115g of sugar. You think you are doing something good for your body, instead you are overloading it with tons of added sugar and other hidden culprits like frozen yogurt and sherbet! While the froyo and sherbet they add are fat free, they are desserts in themselves, and not something I want in mid day pick me up.

I came up with a smoothie that is just as creamy, thick and sweet as jambas smoothies, without all the added calories, sugar, and frozen desserts.

Mocha Frap-un-ccino
Very Good 4.1/5
(20 ratings)

I love Starbucks' Mocha Frappuccino, but with 260 calories and 54 grams of carbs, it didn't fit into my new healthy lifestyle. So I transformed it into a delicious protein shake.

Single Serving Mixed Fruit/Yogurt Smoothie
Very Good 4.4/5
(72 ratings)

Editor's note: Use your favorite milk or yogurt in this recipe. Use ice cubes instead of water for a frozen treat.

Most of the smoothie recipes I've seen are for 3-6 servings. This is a good smoothie for just 1 person. It can be made with a stick blender instead of getting the big one dirty for just one drink!
