Here's an excerpt from my blog last summer after my back surgery...

Homemade smoothies are a great way to get extra protein by adding protein powder. You can buy either milk & egg or soy powder at the grocery store in the health food aisle. The stuff tastes nasty if you just mix it into milk! So here’s my recipe: ½ cup frozen berries, ½ cup milk, ½ cup OJ, 2 scoops protein powder, one banana, and a squirt of honey. The banana helps to thicken the smoothie and the OJ and honey kill the taste of the protein powder.

Hmmm smoothies are great, I used to make them all the time, however, not so much due to all the carbs and sugar they have in the them. Need to find a good low carb recipe I guess. Anyway, I would just place a container of yogurt and some milk in my blender, then just add frozen fruit, usually, strawberry, kiwis and oranges, sometimes blueberries, or watermelon, or what have you, I always tried to use what they said was in them at Tropical Smoothie, mmmm smoothie goodness. I will definitely have to look for a good recipe now.

Smoothies are wonderful but I am too lazy to make my own when there is a smoothie shop two blocks from my office. I should try some of these recipies now that I am channeling my inner domestic goddess :)

Heather what does nuked in water mean? like microwaved? I am unsure, please explain!!!

Smoothies won't hold you unless you add protein. That is key. Planner, Nuked in water means cooked in the microwave per directions on the box.

Yes, use the microwave.. :) They are both very good and VERY filling!!!!

Thanks for all the great ideas!! I may still be too lazy in the a.m., but maybe you can make one and freeze it or something?? Anyone know??
