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
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!Submitted by ROKERSHNER
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.

Healthy breakfast on the go, anyone?
Carrot cake and pancakes together? Now, that's a breakfast we can get behind! These flavorful carrot cake pancakes might taste indulgent, but they're low in both fat and calories. Top with low-fat cream cheese and a drizzle of maple syrup for an even more decadent morning meal.Submitted by FABLEMAKER
This granola makes a great bowl of cereal or yogurt topping. Gourmet granolas can be quite expensive, which is why I prefer to make my own. For the best results, choose old-fashioned (not quick) oats. Quick oats donít crisp as nicely and tend to have a more powdery texture. Submitted by MARISACHURCHILL
