Smoothie Week – {More} Smoothie Recipes

Here is a continuation of my first “Smoothie Week” post, with some more smoothie recipes that I really enjoy! A really interesting smoothie is the “Carrot Cake” smoothie. As my husband describes it: “it’s like you put a carrot cake into a blender, and I’m drinking it!” As with the smoothie recipes on my previous post, you can have the addition of any supplement you may want/need. Also, for the fruit smoothies, using different types of fruit juices will give different flavours.

The Banana Cream Pie smoothie is quite possibly one of my favourites, as it really tastes like you’re enjoying a banana cream pie!!!

Each smoothie recipe makes 1 medium – large smoothie. The method for each smoothie is to simply toss all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth! Enjoy! 🙂
