    Anyone out there have a recipe for a breakfast smoothie that is good to use when you are on a low carb diet? I love strawberry/banana ones but getting a little tired of them. Would love to have some healthy new ones. Thanks in advance.

    Don't have a recipe, but wondering what you all use to make smoothies? My blender is a pain to use.....with lots of parts to be washed,dried & put together each time.Thinking about the Ninja.

    Here is what I like to do for breakfast when I'm in a hurry.... Put some yogurt in the blender. Add a banana. Add some avocado (you won't taste it - it makes it creamy) Add some frozen blue berries. Add some Almond butter. Add some apple or applesauce. Add some quick if you wish. blend. Some times I save some in the freezer then add it to the next batch so it is cold.

    I make smoothies all the time. Since I am alone I use what is called a "Magic Bullet". This works great. I highly recommend this item. If I am in a rush I can just take it with me to drink on the road.
    You can begin with yogurt or just use fruits like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries etc.

    I sometimes add ground flaxseed, or products from Sunridere or Global Light Networks. These products add more fiber to the smoothies

    Correct spelling is Sunrider

    My daughter makes them all the time, and just uses whatever fruit we have on hand. Bananas are good to add, because they are a good thickener. She starts with vanilla yogurt and adds banana, strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, orange juice, etc. Even frozen fruit works. To boost the protein, she mixes in protein powder. Good luck!

    For years, I've been making this same smoothie for breakfast and have yet to tire of it. Keeps me going until lunch, and quantities can be varied to suit taste. I don't measure, just scoop!

    1 tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
    1 scoop protein powder
    1 banana or other fruit (optional)
    1 cup soy milk

    Whir together in a Magic Bullet and take along. It will remind you of an Orange Julius.
    Soy milk works better than cow milk because it doesn't foam up.

    Check out Tupperware. There are a couple of items that would work. They can be brought to work and make it fresh.Yes, I sell the stuff.
