Q:

What is your favorite smoothie recipe?

Our daughter is a fan of smoothies. But she's getting a little bored with daddy's recipe for homemade smoothies (blended frozen raspberries, frozen mango and milk). We're looking for suggestions for new smoothie recipes and figured this community would be a great place to ask. Thanks in advance for your suggestions and/or links to recipes!

Hello,

We buy bags of frozen fruit from Trader Joes (they have at least five different kind of fruit at any given time). Each morning one of our two boys gets to choose the day's "flavor" - including strawberry, blueberry, mango, pineapple, mixed berry, raspberry, or banana (fresh - can't get those frozen). They love trying to come up with crazy combos (I usually limit it to three fruits at a time just to keep things easy for myself). The fact that every day can be different keeps them from getting bored.

So we just mix about a cup of the "fruit du jour" plus about a cup of vanilla yogurt (Trader Joes sells big tubs) and about half a cup of orange juice in the blender. You can also sneak in Wheat Germ or unflavored fibre powder if that's of interest.

Hope that helps!

Avocados. Yes, that's exactly the one I like most due to its awesome benefits.
Avocado contains about 20 types of minerals and vitamins, all of which make up for considerable amounts.

Besides, it is also full of magnesium, zinc, iron, niacin, thiamine or riboflavin…

The amount of potassium present in avocados (14%) is even higher than that in bananas (10%).

Meanwhile, for long, scientists have considered banana as an extremely potassium-rich food.
