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.

I have a smoothie with almond milk, blueberries, hemp powder bananas, apple cider vinegar, spinach and blend it. It sounds horrid but is actually really yummy, you cant taste the vinegar as it has a apple taste once mixed with all ingredients. I do excercise but not everyday but my stomach is getting toned and defined which is great I feel stronger and my skin is fresh so I think it is working. Only 3 days a week for breakfast and am full till after midday.
