Anybody have a fruit smoothie recipe? Also, does anybody know if Trader Joe's has bags of different kinds of frozen fruit?

    This is not really a recipe but I throw in the blender the following ingredients:

    1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
    1 banana
    1/2 cup orange juice (or skim milk if I don't have oj)
    Some frozen fruit (I usually use strawberries or a tropical fruit mix or a mix of raspberries and blueberries)

    This is pretty good. I use the orange juice because otherwise my husband doesn't think it is sweet enough. I guess you could just add sugar or sweetner though. I usually don't measure so those measurements are approximate.

    I also love peanut butter smoothies. I use the same yogurt, banana and skim milk and add natural peanut butter. That is so good!

    Thanks!! This looks yummy!! I'll have to give it a try. I've been craving them lately...I guess with warm weather finally here, plus wanting to be a little bit healthy (I am a junk food junkie!)....I think I am going to go to Trader Joes this weekend and see if I can find some good frozen fruit!! Thanks again!

    Defintately frozen fruit for texture purposes.

    Another twist is to use frozen yogurt or sherbert.

    When I was in elementary school my mother was a member of some diet group that used to suggest 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup skim milk, and a little sweetener. I still drink this when I have the ingredients on hand. It's simple, healthy, and delicious and you can switch out the strawberries for other frozen fruits.

    hockeymom, I bought 6 bags of frozen fruit at Trader Joe's last week. Strawberries, raspberries, and a mix of tropical fruits.

    nevermind, I'm sure you've been to Trader Joe's by now. LOL
    I just noticed the date of the post.

    Gotta try the recipe with spinach


    organic frozen strawberries and/or peaches from Trader Joes
    a little OJ (1/2 cup)
    1/2 or 1/3 banana (frozen is better)
    scoop of Whey protein (Solgar Whey to Go is the absolute smoothest I've tasted)
    sweetener (I use Equal and liquid Stevia)
    A little nutmeg (fresh ground if you have it)
    Optional a little Spirulina. It will turn it green but you can't taste it.

    Blend, add a little water if too thick, blend again, and enjoy

    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    Sounds like instant health -- How do you prepare the spinach to get it totally pureed/smoothed?
