Nobody cares about the Health forum, so I'm just going to say what I've been dying to say for years now and never had the courage to admit, to myself or my loved ones:

I love smoothies.

God dammit all, that feels good to say out loud.

I used to be a soda guy (or a pop guy, for anyone still living in the 1920's), but that's basically poison in a can and incredibly expensive over time. I've slowly switched to smoothies and they are amazing.

I change it up but my recipe of choice:
1/2 Frozen banana
4 strawberries
2 blackberries (no more or the drink will be overpowered)
1/2 cup spinach
3 tbsp vanilla greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice

Recipe #2:
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 kiwi
1/2 cup lemonade

This one is pretty tart, so brace yourself, no one.

I don't know what's more hilarious - this thread or the fact that it's surrounded by a bunch of (other) nonsense threads.

I'm glad I got you away from... POP. Think of how lovely our mornings will be as we drink tea (or smoothies) on the balcony, watching the sunrise. It's not as picturesque with a Coke in your hand.

I see. So, can you sticky this thread? I feel like this information would be valuable for new members.

Is a kale shot just straight kale? I feel like that's too advanced for me. I'm proud of myself for just including protein powder sometimes.

I've had an overwhelming number of requests to continue this thread, so here is recipe #...3, I think?

Recipe
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1 chilled (not frozen) orange

This is a more straightforward drink, good for a morning or pre-run smoothie. Drink hardy, no one!

That is madness. Do you call it soda pop or just pop? Are they all pop or do you call some of them cola?

Well, I've got some bad news. The mangos went bad. They completely slipped my mind. I apologize to everyone out there who was looking forward to hearing about my new smoothie adventures and experiments. I honestly don't know what to say.

In lighter news, I've received quite a few emails, letters, and phone calls with smoothie-related questions and concerns. There are too many for me to respond to them all, so I'll sift through them and compile them into a post later this week.

Till then, stay smooth...ie.

Excellent question! There are a few different schools of thought on this, but in a pinch, use my rule of thumb: smoothies are what I drink and the topic of this thread.

Thanks for your question and stay smooth...ie!

I had a smoothie from a local sandwich shop today. The experience was underwhelming to say the least, which inspired me to create a new segment to the thread: "Smoother or Loser," where I review smoothies from local establishments.

The first review will be up soon! Till then, stay smooth...ie!

What are your thoughts on no-yogurt smoothies? Or is that just too blasphemous to contemplate?
