Banana-berry smoothie

A little ginger and tart pineapple juice add a kick to this sweet but healthy blend of banana and berries.

Ingredients
1 small banana
Pineapple juice
Ice
Blueberries, raspberries or blackberries
2 tsp. honey
1 tsp. grated peeled fresh ginger

Pineapple-citrus smoothie

This golden smoothie looks and tastes like sunshine in a glass, and is a nutritional knockout too. The orange juice and pineapple are high in vitamin C and the banana is a good source of potassium.

Ingredients
3/4 c. orange-tangerine juice blend
Carrot juice
Frozen canned pineapple chunks
1/2 frozen banana

Pomegranate-berry smoothie

 

Whatever berries you have at home can go in this antioxidant-rich breakfast.

Ingredients
1 Pomegranate
You can take cherry, strawberry anything
Low fat yogurt

Banana-peanut butter smoothie

For a thicker, colder smoothie, cut peeled banana into chunks and freeze for up to a week in a self-sealing plastic bag.

Ingredients
2 frozen bananas
2 spoons peanut butter
Ice and milk

Mango madness smoothie

Tropical flavours offer a mini vacation in a cup. You won't even notice the grated carrot added for extra sweetness and a bonus boost of veggies.

Ingredients
Mangos
Some carrots
Strawberries
Coconut yogurt
Ice
