What does everybody put in smoothies?

This morning it was Almond Milk, a Banana, Peach Yogurt, Cheerios, Prune Juice and some ice cubes.

What other concoctions have you guys come up with and how do you make these things more nutritious? Hoping this will be a fantastic thread. :D

My last creation was putting a chocolate peanut butter brownie into a coffee milkshake.

I like oj and milk for the liquid part, a banana, yogurt, and frozen fruit (eliminates the need for ice cubes). I also will quarter a kiwi, skin still on, and throw that in there...you'd never know the fuzz is in there, and there's lots of fiber and nutrients in the peel. Early on, when smoothies were an important part of my meal plan because my teeth were so sore, I would throw in some veggies along with the fruit; particularly raw shredded beets and spinach. They don't impart much flavor, but lots of nutrients. And don't forget some ground flaxseed!

Ooooh I love this question. I have a pretty loaded smoothie in the morning which keeps me going for hours.

The base of my smoothie consists of 1 banana, 1 scoop of protein powder, a hefty spoonful of nut butter (almond is my fave), a handful of oats and soya milk for liquid. I then usually add either some fresh or frozen spinach or some frozen fruit (blueberries/strawberries/summer fruits) for extra goodness. Delicious! I'm thinking of trying with some coconut milk/cream and some more exotic fruity flavours for summer to mix it up a bit. The possibilities are endless!

On the rare occasion when it's too uncomfortable to eat solid food, it's off to Dairy Queen for a chocolate milkshake :D

So I'm a big fan of my NutriBullet even before my metal mouth now it's a must. 2.5 weeks in and they still hurt so I make smoothies for breakfast.

My go to green smoothie is
- handful of baby spinach
- a bit of kale
- 1 frozen banana
- some acidophilus powder
- tablespoon of protein powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of Macca powder
- 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 cup almond milk
As each day passes I'm getting closer and closer to my dream smile.

20 months into lingual braces and my smoothies are still my lifesaver!

I generally prepare one for breakfast consisting of:
plain yoghurt
bananas
mixture of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries
carrot
spinach and/or kale
oats
chia seed
linseed
mixed nuts (nothing to chew once through the blender)
some frozen fruit too (mango, kiwi, pineapple, cherries)

It's very filling and nutritious!

Home made kefir. Get some kefir grains and start manufacturing :) Kefir is great for variety of things the most important one being the natural "good bacteria" that help your stomach to stay healthy. And it really improves the taste of any shake by adding sourness to it.

Visalus, the shake that tastes like a cake. With soy or almond milk, a scoop of rolled oats, an ice cube or two. YUM.
