A delicious rainbow of SMOOTHIE flavors

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing my favorite smoothie recipes.  You'll notice that they all share the same base: vanilla non-fat greek yogurt, frozen banana, and milk (I use skim).

Years ago through trial and error I came up with the Strawberry Citrus recipe.  After that, I kept the base the same and played with different ingredients.  When my kids were little I knew that they'd be more likely to drink the smoothie if they had some say in what went into it.  Knowing that I had a good base, I'd let them choose what fruits to add.

I like my smoothies to be milk shake consistency.  I achieve that by freezing all the fruits and veggies that go into the smoothies. Then I dump all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

For the Pumpkin Pie smoothie I freeze canned pumpkin puree in 1/2 cup portions so I can just grab a baggie of it from the freezer and dump it in.  If the pumpkin puree is really rock solid, I'll transfer it to a bowl and pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it before tossing it in. 

For the Peanut Butter Banana Spinach smoothie I buy a bag of baby spinach and freeze the whole thing in a gallon ziplock.  Then I break off what I need and toss it in.

Each recipe makes a 12oz smoothie. 

Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
