Aloha Friday: Smoothies





My Question:

Do you like smoothies? Do you make your own smoothies?

*******************
I do love smoothies and sometimes I do make my own with leftover fruits and yogurt etc.

Start the New Year off the healthy way (and make the most of in-season, immunity-boosting oranges!) with a yummy breakfast shake that's loaded with vitamin C, potassium, and calcium. 


Ingredients:
1/2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed (from 1 large or 2 medium oranges)
1 medium banana, sliced
1 cup organic, lowfat yogurt
1–2 teaspoons agave nectar, to taste
Ice cubes, if desired

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
Serves 1–2

  1. I do love smoothies, but I usually just add a cup of frozen fruit to a protein shake for a quick meal and to cut down on calories.

  7. I am not a smoothie fan. I keep trying them and I just don't like them. The closest I get to one is when my mother-in-law makes what she calls banana shakes, which is really just ice, bananas and cinnamon thrown together in a blender.

  17. I'm a huge smoothie fan. :) I had them all the time during my pregnancy last summer. It's a great wait to beat the heat and stay healthy. Fruit and yogurt was my "norm". :)

  18. I like smoothies but I'm kind of picky in that they can't have any fruit pulp in them. They have to be SMOOTH smoothies. :)

    I never think of making them at home though.
