Delicious Smoothie Recipes

You know your diet should include a variety of colors. Consider these recipes your ticket to that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow: a bikini body! For each, put the yogurt in first, then add the solid ingredients and blend until smooth. Depending on how thick you like your smoothies -- and how powerful your blender or food processor is -- you may need to thin these out with a little liquid, such as nonfat milk.

3 smoothies a day for 5 days-ugh! Not sure I could keep that up and not having a solid meal w/ other proteins like chicken, fish, eggs, etc. And not sure a liquid diet is very healthy, despite having a few blended fruits and veggies.

Javita Burn + Control works because it contains two safe, proven herbs: YERBA MATE: Helps suppress appetite, and increases caloric burn rate. GARCINIA CAMBOGIA: Helps decrease your appetite and reduces the amount of carbs stored as fat. Visit www.myjavita.com/thecoffeebiz to learn more!

I frequently have my veggies in a smoothy. Cup of organic spinach, 1/3 cucumber unpeeled and diced, 1 stock celery, whole apple corec or banana, tablespoon or two of honey, five ice cubes, 1/2 cup pineapple crushed or chunked, with juice, 6 oz water. Mix well on "Ice Crusher." Enjoy.
