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.

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.

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie
Very Good 4.4/5
(5 ratings)

100% natural and 100% delicious! As well as 'good' bacteria for a healthy digestion, yogurt has calcium important for bones - particularly for menopausal women and children. Bananas are full of slow release sugar to sustain you throughout the day and are also high in potassium, which is important to lower high blood pressure. Blueberries are full of fiber and antioxidants. And finally, orange juice is high in Vitamin C - add more or less depending on how thick you want your Smoothie. Enjoy!

Garlic lovers, rejoice! This recipe contains a whopping two heads, but the flavor mellows and sweetens when baked.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(134 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake
Very Good 4.5/5
(202 ratings)

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)
