WAHOO for fresh juice!!!! this is my favourite staple juice blend. Buy a big bag of carrots, a couple bags of apples a couple of cucumbers and some fresh ginger, turn on the juicer and BINGO...Juice for the WEEK!!!Submitted by WILDFIREWENCH
With the strong flavor of orange and strawberries, combined with creamy banana and a surprisingly smooth taste from spinach, you get at least 2.5 servings of fruit & veggies! Pretty awesome..Submitted by KRAVMAGAGIRL
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.

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!)Submitted by OILPAINTER
This is a smoothie recipe from Dr. Josh Axe. The volume is large enough that I have divided it into 2 portions/servings, though if you can "handle a 350+ calorie breakfast, GO FOR IT!Submitted by RUNZFAST
A healthy version of a classic fall favorite.
