Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie RecipeHere’s a novel approach to recording a Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe that I really love. OK, it is a bit long, but the narration and background music make it a pleasure to watch.

This is a very basic smoothie recipe that uses bananas as the only fruit. The addition of soy milk to the recipe makes this a great low calorie smoothie recipe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance. Just skip the optional yogurt if this is the case.

I think you’ll have to agree that the smoothie could be made in a few minutes, rather than the nearly 9 minutes that Cam takes in the recording. To end up with two great tasting portions of smoothies, with only about 233 calories each, in that amount of time is a great find.

Enjoy!

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 whole bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 6 ounces vanilla yogurt (optional)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend the bananas, soy milk and yogurt until smooth. Add the ice and blend until ice is finely chopped and well blended. Add honey and vanilla extract and blend till mixed fully.

Pour this into two glasses and enjoy the fruits of your labors from making this low calorie smoothie recipe.

Fruit Juice in a Smoothie Instead of Yogurt

fruit juice in a smoothieI have found many smoothie recipes that sound really good, but all of them include yogurt (or sorbet or soy milk, etc) and I’d rather use just fruit and fruit juice in a smoothie (and ice if needed). I will use Splenda to sweeten if needed. So yeah I just need to know how much fruit/juice to add to a smoothie recipe that has, say, one cup of yogurt/sorbet/soymilk. Like a ratio or something. I can do math to adjust the amount once I have that established.

Using Fruit Juice in a Smoothie

Replacing yogurt with fruit juice in a smoothie isn’t a bad thing.  The biggest difference you’ll notice is that the smoothie will be more watery.  Sure… you can freeze the fruit juice or use ice cubes to help thicken the smoothie, but it won’t be as effective as using a base of yogurt.  What you can use to replace the thickening effect of yogurt is either a meal replacement powder (I like MetRx Vanilla), or even a sugar-free pudding mix.

You can always experiment with other things, such as thicker fruits (banana, muskmelon, papaya) or other bases.  And you’ll want to experiment with the mix ratio, so I don’t have a good answer to that.  But, to answer your question, “Yes, you can drop the yogurt and use fruit juice in a smoothie!”

How to Make a Raw Green Smoothie

A Raw Green Smoothie isn’t up to everyone’s taste.  These drinks can have a strong taste that many people find objectionable.  That said, they can be great for your health, low in calories, and the taste can be , well, ‘acquired’.  Why not try a raw green smoothie today?

Raw Green Smoothie Video

Wow! This guy really means it when he says RAW!!!

Starts with a stroll through the yard (good thing the dog didn’t get there first). Fresh is what it is all about. Watch and enjoy!

Blending Fresh Greens

What Goes Into a Raw Green Smoothie?

While this guy wanders around plucking fresh grass and mixing it with pure water and a bit of honey, there are probably healthier and tastier raw green smoothies to be had.

Grass is very hard to digest, even when well blended.  Try using ingredients such as kale, spinach, broccoli, and wheat grass for the greens.  Raw coconut milk, almond milk, or organic banana might make a better liquid than the water is.  The raw honey is a great and common addition to help sweeten the smoothie.

Play around with various combinations and you’ll find a way to make a raw green smoothie that suits your taste.

Fruit Juice Smoothie Require a Juicer?

fruit juice smoothieDo You Need a Juicer to Make a Fruit Juice Smoothie?

I want to get in the habit of making my own fruit juice smoothie at home but I don’t have a juicer nor do I know anything about purchasing one.   Is there any way to make a fruit juice smoothie without a juicer?

A Fruit Juice Smoothie Doesn’t Need a Juicer

The answer to this one is simple.  No.

You can use a juicer to make juice, especially specialty juices.  Think things like carrot juice, beet juice, cabbage juice, etc.  Juicers do a great job of extracting the juice from what might otherwise be considered “non-juicy” vegetables.

But if you are looking to make a Fruit Juice Smoothie, all you need is:

  • Fruit juice — you can use canned, frozen, or fresh squeezed
  • A base — normally ice cream, yogurt, frozen bananas, or frozen yogurt
  • Ice cubes — alternatively, you could freeze the fruit juice into cubes

Blend the ingredients in a blender, and you should be good to go!
