I have one in the morning then again at night. Usually in addition to a meal, not as a replacement though.

Typical smoothie: Mixed spinach, broccoli, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, 1 teaspoon of 100% cacao powder.

Sometimes I'll add a scoop of protein powder. Sometimes I substitute different fruits. I've noticed that bananas overpower the flavor of any vegetable, and if they're frozen they make the drink cold. Sometimes I'll use cauliflower instead of broccoli, or carrots instead. The more variety, the better.

great stuff, cmed. i think there are some smoothie powder out there loaded with pro-biotics for healthy intestines?

i take a smoothie powder called "Green Vibrance".. i think that's the name...

mix it with a scoop of protein, chia seeds and acai juice.. the acai juice is an anti-oxidant, but i actually i just use it to give the green stuff flavor.

i tried doing the green veggie/smoothie by itself? dude, it tastes like lizard spit..:blank

I like acai berry, grape, banana, pecans, and spinach. Sometimes I throw in matcha tea powder and spirulina (kinda tastes like pond scum).

Smoothies have a lot of sugars though. I'm going to try the spinach with soy milk and 2 boiled eggs.

This is what I put in my smoothies...

Raw peanut butter, raw oatmeal, baby spinach, 1 scoop of protein powder, either avocado oil or walnut oil, 1 banana, some frozen fruit usually mangos cut into cubes or peach slices, a little pure Ontario maple syrup medium, sometimes a few crushed walnuts, and the rest filled up with 2% lactose free milk.

I have one to two of these every single day.

I would add acai berries into them but I have never once seen them anywhere in any grocery store ever.

Honestly you don't taste the spinach at all!
I know it sounds weird but all you really taste is the fruit :)

for those who can't find the acai berries, how about just using the juice? that's what i do..

Samabazon is the brand that Costco carries. i think it's organic..

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you off with the "lizard spit" Sam.. but that Green Vibrance, is just greens. It has everything from spirulina, spinach, broccoli, every deep leafy green veggie that you can think of in an organic powder.. by itself? Yuck!!:um



they also have it in powder form too..

it helps me pack on the calories and adds some fibre to the smoothie
