I 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!”
