WW Core - Smoothies

Smoothie 1
  1. Put about one cup ff plain yogurt in the blender with
  2. 1 cup frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
  3. a little splenda and it comes out perfect.
  4. No need to water it down with ice
Smoothie 2

Base (makes 2 LARGE smoothies):
  1. 2 c. milk
  2. 3/4 c. FF Plain yogurt
  3. 1/4 c. tofu (for protein)
  4. 6 ice cubes
  5. Lots of fruit. ;-)
Smoothie 3

  1. A cup of ff yogurt
  2. 1 banana
  3. 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries (no need for ice)
  4. pineapple chunks
  5. a splash of ff milk if its having a hard time coming together in the blender. This usually makes enough for two.
Smoothie 4

  1. 1 cup of skim milk
  2. 1 medium banana
  3. 1/2 cup of frozen peaches (no need for ice this way)
  4. 1 teaspoon of splenda or to taste
Smoothie 5
  1. My favorite combination is frozen banana and frozen unsweetened strawberries, with plain yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. I like it thick like ice cream! Yum.
  2. The riper the banana gets before you freeze it, the sweeter it is and the less splenda you need. I usually don't put in any sweetener at all.

FRAPPUCCINO
  1. 1 c ff milk
  2. 2 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 3/4 c warm water
  3. 1-2 packets Splenda
  4. 1 c ice (or more if you like it slushy)
  5. Blend in smoothie maker or blender and enjoy! Tastes like the bottled Starbucks Frappuccinos.
CHOCOLATE BANANA
  1. 1 c ff milk
  2. 1 tsp cocoa powder
  3. 1 sliced frozen banana
  4. 1 or 2 Splenda
  5. Comes out shake-like. You can add ice to make it thicker.

1 frozen banana, cut in pieces (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons plain ff sf yogurt
1 tablespoon honey or sugar (count points)
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
I made this one and didn't add sweetener, I found it sweet enough!

Strawberry, Banana For Two
I made this one up myself for DH and I.
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 fresh banana
2 tablespoons of plain ff sf yogurt
I put a touch of ff milk because I thought it was a little thick for my food processor, this is plenty for two!

For each recipe, place all ingredients in a food processor, puree on high. Each makes about 1 1/2 cups. For a thinner smoothie, just add 1/2 cups of ff milk.
