Smoothie Recipes

Updated: Jun 23


Smoothies are a great energy booster first thing in the morning

..or they can cure a sweet tooth at night.


Brown Bananas:


When your bananas go brown – don’t go bananas! You don’t need to throw them in the garbage because they are attracting fruit flies. You can re-use old bananas by putting them in the freezer. A frozen banana will thaw quickly when held under hot water for 2 minutes. You can use these bananas in Smoothies and healthy bakedgoodies like Cocoa Banana Muffins.

I recommend making your smoothie a little fancy if that suits you. I sometimes serve mine in a wine glass, a special mug, or in a fancy glass, topped with a sprinkle


of cinnamon and a slice of fruit on the rim of the glass. Special glasses should not be restricted to the use of alcohol, which is an unhealthy substance. Use your special glasses to celebrate your health. Cheers!
