Cottage cheese or part-skim ricotti also add a nice texture plus protein in your fruit smoothie. I also add 1 Tbsp. flaxseed seed ground in my smoothie.

Reading thru the comments no one mentioned adding an egg to your smoothie, its like having an eggnog for breakfast, plus you get your protein in for breakfast.

I'm surprised she didn't mention any veggie smoothies. I know, I turned up my nose the first time I heard it too, but during a detox class about a year ago, I discovered a wonderful carrot juice, cucumber, melon and mango smoothie that is so light and refreshing during the sweltering Texas summer mornings.

For a lo-cal protein boost, I add a scoop of WholeFood's Vanilla Whey Protein powder.

Don't have much of an appetite in the a.m. Will be trying these to see if I can start to get breakfast back on the menu.

I have braces so I make smoothies every morning for breakfast for my boyfriend and I. I freeze 8 oz containers of non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt and throw that into the blender with a banana, frozen fruit (mangos, pineapple, strawberries, whatever was in the store) tofu and skim milk or fruit juice and blend. It is a good kick-start to the day and provides lots of vitamins, fiber and protien.

i'm new,too !! I love smoothies--an easy way to add your fruits--what do you think of using slimfast as a powder of choice?

My 11 yr old son and I LOVE smoothies. He often requests one every day. We like our base to be vanilla yougurt adding a handful of berries, pineapple or banannas. I like to use Splenda to sweeten it because it doesnt have that diety taste. Yougurt is great for women's health too!

I noticed the ideas to add flax so I will try that. Also, want to try to add protein.

I get stressed out when I exercise and diet at the same time. Seems to me that I eat more when I exercise. I realize that exercise is great for the body to get toned up and feeling good, but I have a very hard time doing both at the same time. I will try just dieting and when I get down to where I have to be, I will start an exercise program to keep my weight down. Hope this works.
