I love my blender... and need smoothie recipes

Saturday, October 23, 2010

I was really excited to go for a run this morning, mostly because I bought a blender last night and couldn't wait to come home to make a smoothie! Being a blender/smoothie virgin, I guessed.

I ended up using:
One medium banana
Five strawberries
A handful of spinach

In hindsight, I realized I didn't put any ice in, so it was super thick and creamy and delicious! I also REALLY need to get some good protein powder so I can make these a little more nutritionally sound. Overall though, the smoothie was yum, and SUPER easy to do!

Do you have any tried and true smoothie recipes? I looked at the Spark recipes, and there are gobs of them, but I'd love to hear your favorites!
