We've started having smoothies every morning. We've been doing this for about a week and a half, and I noticed many blogs that I read have been making smoothies as well. Ours is fairly simple, but I've noticed it keeps me full well past lunch time. I used to have a bowl of steel cut oats with my coffee, or perhaps toast with avocado. Neither of which gave me the energy that I feel since drinking these.

We blend(for a family of 3):
1 cup soymilk
1 soy vanilla yogurt
3 rounded teaspoons rice protein, unflavored/unsweetened
1/2 block Pure Acai pulp, unsweetened
1 banana

This is so tasty. And, I've found that my body cannot tolerate wheat very well. It's been an ongoing battle, because frankly I don't want to have to go gluten-free. But, when I avoid wheat my body just feels and works MUCH better. I'll be writing more on this, but for the moment I'm going to enjoy my blue smoothies.

Sounds yummy! I'm a smoothie aficionado too- they power me through to lunch with more energy than I've ever had before. Have a great week!

Thanks :) I've been following your green smoothie journey on your blog. I just can't get myself to add the greens to the mix. You are more daring than I!! ;)

You really can't taste them. Banana, particularly frozen- that's the secret weapon. I also like to use the juice of a lemon in the bottom of the blender before I blend the greens. It seems to cut the green taste.
