Green Power! Smoothie #Recipe

Friday, January 27, 2012 Posted by Dina N

I love smoothies. Recently, I've been having them for breakfast. They are delicious and easy to make, ready in a jiffy, and I can even drink them on the go. I use organic ingredients and feel extra virtuous. Plus, I get a good deal of antioxidants, calcium, protein, and fiber - in one yummy drink. It feels me up and gives me energy that lasts all day. My kids love these smoothies as an afternoon snack.

Place the following in a blender:

1 cup fat-free milk
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 cup ice
1 ripe banana, sliced (or 1 cup frozen blueberries, or 1/2 banana and 1/2 cup blueberries)
1-2 scoops (2-4 tbsp.) ground flax seeds
1-2 scoops Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens in berry

Blend until smooth, drink, repeat!

    Yum, I wonder if soy milk would work? I'm lactose intolerant!

    We've used flax before, but I haven't heard of the antioxidant omega 3 product. Looks like an easy smoothie!

    Mmmm - I'm definitely going to buy that powder and makes this! Thanks for sharing - smoothies are SO good! (Good for you too, if you make them right).

    What a great idea! I think I am going to make a smoothie with some greens powder that I have :) Thanks for sharing!

    I also love smoothies and they are great for breakfast! I would try this with almond milk or soy milk too. The Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens seems delicious and nutritious to try. This drink must have a nice amount of protein.

    Looks kind of gross, but I'm sure it's healthy!

    I love any recipe that calls for banana's!

  10. Jennifer said...

    any recipe with banana's is a winner in my book!

    My grandchildren have been raised on smoothies, because their Mom & Dad are so aware that they can put just about any veggie in a smoothie and make it taste good they serve them often. I tried a premade frozen concoction but my grandsons knew and didn't like it. So much for the easy road. It's got to be fresh or not at all.

    I have been in a bad habit of skipping breakfast, so I bet something like this would help me ease into the day in a healthy way. Thanks for sharing!

    I'll definitely have to switch the recipe up since I'm vegan but thanks for sharing a green smoothie recipe.

    I haven't ever heard of the antioxident omega 3 product before. I use protein powder in my smoothies now.... I will have to check this other out

    this looks yummy, maybe I can use almond milk instead of yogurt

    This is exactly the kind of smoothie I was looking for - I have some amazing grass, and I like dairy, but haven't found any good smoothies to use these together until now! Thank you!

  19. Sherri said...

    Sounds delicious! I have been putting protein powder in my morning smoothies, but I will have to check out the antioxident omega 3

    This sounds like a delicious recipe! I would use full fat milk and yogurt. mmmm Thank you for sharing your recipe!
