At the risk of sounding mediocre , my easiest and quickest smoothie is some silken tofu , blended with fresh or frozen berries and sometimes a tablespoon of wheat germ .

But I will try some of the more elaborate sounding ones on here ! orngtongue.gif

I'm a mom of two and I go to college as well so I understand what your going through :) I started a blog with smoothie recipes and healthy living ideas you can find them here at http://homemomsandhealth.blogspot.com/. These are green smoothies so they have 60% fruit to 40% vegetable so you don't taste the veggies. This is twice as much nutrition as a regular smoothie and my kids just love them :) double bonus. I update with recipes regularly so you can subscribe to get them if you'd like :)

 

Green Raspberry smoothie

 

Frozen Spinach about 1/3 cup

about 5 baby carrots

about 1/3 cup parsley

1/10 of a cucumber

two handfuls of frozen blueberries

one small apple

about 1/2 cup water

agave nectar to taste

 

These are great but make sure to mix 40-60 so you don't taste the veggies :) you can also add non fat greek or regular blueberry yogurt

This is almost a desert it is so good - so I think I will share.  It is almost like a sherbet.

 

frozen mangoes

coconut milk

small handful of coconut

a bit of honey

 

 

I had it at a friend's house and was close to licking the bowl!

 

if I was trying to add in some protein into the recipe, I might experiment with silken tofu and or ground almonds.

Sounds good....I want to make this tonight for a treat.  Did you use canned coconut milk or the thinner type in a carton (like So Delicious) that is more like milk and a bit less coconutty?  I guess either w/b fine but since I have both I thought I would ask. thx

I have only used the thinner type of coconut milk.  Good luck

Thanks.

I ended up using plain coconut milk yogurt because I had some that was close to expiring.  I also added a dash of vanilla.  My husband and I liked it but the kids did not.  Which is fine.  One of the nice things about the Vitamix is that it is easy to make more than one batch quickly and easily.  The kids decided on...strawberry, mango, dark cherry and coconut milk 'ice cream-like' smoothies for desert.

Here are some yummy smoothie recipes:
http://www.incrediblesmoothies.com/recipes/chocolate-peanut-butter-green-smoothie-recipe-with-hazelnut-milk/

I love that one because it has all the health benefits of spinach without the taste--its masked by the peanut butter and cacao.

This one is also great for a similar reason: http://www.incrediblesmoothies.com/recipes/passion-fruit-mango-green-smoothie-recipe-with-vanilla/

Its more tropical fruity rather than desserty.

And if you're a pear lover like myself then you'll enjoy these:
