Blenderize…Now!

As many of you probably know, I’m a huge proponent of what I call Superfoods Smoothies, and I have very specific ways that I suggest preparing them. But, if you’re new to the world of homemade smoothies – or just looking for an excellent new recipe – here’s a simple, potent and very tasty way to go.

Mix the following ingredients together in a blender:

6 to 8 oz. of 100% orange juice
6 to 8 oz. of vanilla soy milk (I recommend Soy Dream Enriched Vanilla)
1 banana
1 handful of strawberries
2 handfuls of raw spinach (Yes, spinach! You won’t even taste it in this recipe.)

Blend on high until smooth.

Variations:

If you want it thicker, add more fruit.
If it’s too thick, add more liquid.
If you want it sweeter, add more juice.
If you want it creamier, add more soy milk.
If you want even more antioxidants, use a mixed berry blend (the more blueberries, the better).
If you want even more “green power” benefits, add as much spinach as you can tolerate, taste-wise.
If you want it colder, use either frozen berries or a few ice cubes.
If you want it as a post-workout drink, add a scoop of veggie protein powder (soy, rice, pea, etc.).
If you want it as more of a complete meal (aka a basic Superfoods Smoothie), add a scoop of veggie protein powder, a couple scoops of oats and a tablespoon of flax oil.

Try one of these variations per day for a week or two and feel the difference. (They make the perfect breakfast, by the way…)

    Hi Bobby,

    Will give the spinach a go… I think.

    Also, just wondering what your views on the horse racing industry are?

    And a question that you might just ignore or laugh at, but here goes…

    Ethics aside, what animal products do least harm to humans when part of their diet?

    Thanks for your time,

    Trevor.

    Hey Bobby!

    I am so glad I found this and how you’re doing! I knew you from 1988 and you and I went to eat in your blue corvette! I made you my favorite vegan chocolate cookies you loved, I’m from Colorado and I know Dana and Mark. Get a hold of me! I’d love to hear from you. I lived in North Hollywood with 3 other girls, Terri, Robin and Patty. I forgot where you took me to eat but when I ordered vegan, you were pleasantly surprised. I’d love to catch up with you!

    As we age and become more vulnerable to injury due to physiological changes,
    we should combine it with a specific approach, senior citizen assistance called monovision.
    Tuesday senior citizen assistance is Senior Citizen’s Day, you might want to travel,
    wonderful, let’s do that. But it’s my soul I’m worried
    about now, and I don’t want to do these things with are either busy or working.

    People were signing up under her and becoming her downline.
    Who said that auto insurance is only for younger people.
