I make myself smoothies 2 or 3 mornings a week for breakfast. I use Rice or Soy Milk, a banana, protein powder, frozen berries and a touch of stevia for sweetener. Perfect energy and filling too.

My favorite low-cal smoothie is to quarter a really ripe banana and freeze it, then put it in the blender with 1 cup of 2% or skim milk. Blend just long enough to get rid of banana chunks. Tastes like ice cream! I'm not a big banana fan, but I like this simple treat!

Hi, I just signed up tonight and want to improve my health program. A couple of tips I would like to share are: I just read how much yogurt improves your weight loss and also soy beans, and mushrooms (any kind). They are considered excellent for knocking off the weight faster.

I make a smoothie every morning with frozen fruit, ground flax, scoop of protein powder, oj or skim milk and I throw in a handful of oats. I fills me up and keeps me going for hours.

I enjoy a smoothie in the AM for breakfast. Yoplait has a smoothie fruit mix in the freezer that makes fixing them a breeze. My entire family ask for one when they hear the Magic Bullet going.

This used to be my favorite breakfast after I just had my daughter in the middle of the summer. I could hold it in one hand and drink my breakfast while my daughter would nurse. My favorite way to make mine was some ice, low fat milk, sweetened nonfat yogurt, a banana, a cup or two of berries, and some protein powder. Any extra that I wouldn't drink went to my two boys who loved it too. It was delicious, perfect for the heat of the summer, filling (it would usually last me at least until lunch and I often wasn't ready to eat until a couple hours past the average lunch time), and very healthy. What a cool idea to use leftovers to make fruit bars! I will have to remember that one this summer.

CRFAUX - You go BOY! ?? GIRL!!?? Anyhoo I agree , natural , unrefined sweeteners are much better, try them and see if you notice that you have less swelling, cutting out refined sugar and flour from you diet will help bloating go away!! AWESOME results! Smoothies are the best! Try making your own juices, having a juicer is a bit pricy but well worth it! Vitimins galore and the flavors are un-beet-able (soory had to be done!) try beet juice to sweeten smoothies and adds a lovely color too! enjoy!

Yesterday I made a delicious smoothie using a 32 oz container of organic, low-fat, plain yougurt, a pint of strawberries from my freezer and a little sugar to sweeten it a bit. With the blender stored in the refrig, it makes a quick, healthy pick-me-up during a busy day.

A Ninja Blender is perfect for smoothies. I also buy unsweetened vanilla almond milk at 40 calories in a 8 oz serving. I do add flaxseed, it gives the smoothie a nutty flavor.
