Smoothie Adventure

Lately I've been seeing many delicious sounding smoothie recipes popping up in the blogosphere. Well, the other night Scott and I decided to join in (only because we recently pulled our fancy blender out of hiding).

We made these berry smoothies using a few different things I had in my freezer including ice, frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, a banana, and some applesauce.

The smoothies were delicious, and now I'm hooked. I have plans for trying out this spinach smoothie I've been hearing so much about very soon.

Do you make smoothies? If so, what do you put in them usually?


  1. I got addicted to smoothies when I started living with my current roommate - she's a big health nut.

    Here is what we put in our smoothies:
    *1/2 cup orange juice
    *handful of spinach
    *1-2 tablespoons of flax seed
    *1/2 cup frozen berries
    *1 individual carb master yogurt (any berry flavor tastes good)
    *1/2 - 1 banana

  2. Yum yum yum! I love smoothies! You just have to be careful because apparently its easy to go overboard on calories with them. But done right, they are so good!

  3. I love smoothies although I suck at making them so we usually buy the premade kind that you can just blend with ice lol.

    The Sweetest Life

  4. I haven't made smoothies in years, thanks for the idea! Perhaps it's time to hunt down my blender...

  5. Ohhh my. I really want to try making smoothies again. I love avocados so I once looked up a recipe for an avocado smoothie and.. that's sort of where my smoothie making fizzled. It was not good. Haha.

    But I think I should try and perfect some yummy smoothies in preparation for warmth! I've not even used our blender once!

  6. green smoothies are my favorite. i just throw in a bunch of spinach, kale if i have it on hand, fresh squeezed OJ and almond milk, and frozen mangos. so delicious.

  7. Those smoothies look delicious! My best friend and I are OBSESSED with smoothies. I have to say a regular mango smoothie hits the spot.

  8. Yummmm. I LOVE smoothies. So much. I actually got a peach smoothie this morning at smoothie king, however, my mother-in-law got me a great blender for Christmas so I need to break out the smoothie making book and get started!! Thanks for sharing!

    MaieDae- Get that blender out! Hope you make something yummy soon!

  10. I am loving the "green monster" smoothie! I just finished one, actually. Haha! I've had one every day since I found out about it last Sunday. If you try it, I suggest using vanilla almond milk! So good!
