My children resist veggies, but they love smoothies. This smoothie packs in lots of good-for-you fruits and veggies, but to my kids, it's just a super delicious breakfast. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, UT
We love smoothies, so there isn’t much we don’t use to make unusual combinations. Cream cheese adds an extra special touch to this yummy concoction that our friends and family just love. —Kathy Specht, Clinton, Montana
What could be better on a warm day than a frosty 'julius'? This recipe from Linda Evancoe-Coble of Leola, Pennsylvania, eliminates a trip to the mall to get one, plus it's chockfull of wholesome fruit, vitamins and nutrition.
A tantalizing combination of strawberries and orange juice, this smoothie gets its shake-like texture from low-fat buttermilk. “The recipe also works well with other fresh berries,“ says Helene Rock of Los Altos, California.
Please romance that recipe is also delicious without the flaxseed. IN an effort to promote flax, which we grow on our farm, my husband and I came up with this recipe while we were driving to the annual Pride of Dakota Show to sell our flax products. We made our first Strawberry Flax Smoothie at the show and it was a hit!
The smoothie can be prepared as well without the flax.
Sweet and refreshing, this pretty pink slush stores well in the freezer, so it's great to have on hand for summer guests. Just thaw and add ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. Aahhh! —Danielle Brandt, Ruthton, Minnesota
“This smoothie is fantastic and is packed with protein as well as the berries,” writes Allison Tunaley of Lookout, California. “No one knows it's even tofu until we tell them, but even then, they can't believe it.”
