Smoothies

This post is about smoothies! I love making my own combinations, and I would like to share some of my favorites with you. Other than “one banana” none of these use measurements – add them according to taste. I usually use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of soy milk, but you can use more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothies. Other than the bananas, I use frozen fruit. And as for the instructions – just put everything in a blender, and blend! Using my amounts of banana and soy milk you will get one serving, or two small ones. They’re perfect for throwing together in the morning for breakfast, and protein or other powders can be added to any of them. Any kind of milk can be used, but I most often have soy milk on hand. Almond milk and coconut milk also go great in smoothies. I haven’t tried hemp milk, but if that’s the milk you prefer I’m sure it will taste just fine too. These are very versatile! You can add or subtract the yoghurt from any as well, and you can use yoghurts made from either soy or coconut milk.
