I've started making smoothies at home for breakfast and thought I'd share the concoction I've come up with that I like the best! In my Inbox this morning, I had an email from LIVESTRONG and one of the articles was on smoothies.
Here's the link for the article: http://www.livestrong.com/article/14357-5-things-you-need-to-know-about-fruit-smoothies/?utm_source=maynewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=090512

While it says to use milk as the liquid base, I don't. I use Tropicana Trop50 pulp free calcium+vitamin D. http://www.tropicana.com/#products/Trop50/287

So, here's my recipe!

1/2 cup lite strawberry yogurt
1/2-3/4 cup frozen mixed fruit- (peaches, strawberries, pineapple and grapes)
1/4 cup frozen blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
8 oz orange juice (or skim milk if you prefer)
a heaping handful of spinach (don't say BLECH until you try it. With the fruit, yogurt and juice, you don't even know it's in there!)

Pulse for a few minutes until everything is all chopped up, mixed up and frosty. ENJOY!

It's easier than anything else! I just pour it into an insulated coffee cup, put a straw in the hole and I'm off to work!
