    how about sharing your favorite blender drink

    No I'm not looking for a sip of your daiquiri or margarita. I mean those meals in a blender so many of us resort to. I know you're out there you blender people... Share some ingredients..

    Here's my favorite, it's often my supper time meal after eating larger breakfast and lunch..
    - starts with half a blender of soy milk - my favorite is edensoy original extra(vitamins added)
    - I throw in two handfuls of baby carrots(convienient because they are already to go just rinse em, no
    peeling, I find that appealing)
    - couple cubes of frozen chopped spinach (I unwrap a box, nuke it for 40 secs, cut into 6-8 cubes and
    keep in a baggie in freezer)
    - bunch of frozen blueberries(I usualy blend the previous ingredients before adding these so it doesnt set
    up like concrete from the added cold, before the veggies get good and chopped up)
    - 3-4 bananas ( we keep constant supply of new green ahead of time so we always have ripe ones coming,
    if they get too ripe cube em in fridge..
    - some wheat germ
    - milled flax seed (better than oil, tons of fiber, gotta be milled or it just goes out the way it came in,
    Barleans Fortiflax is my favorite.. )

    Blend it up and mmmmmmmm, enough for my wife and I to get a big glass and a half each.. it's delicious.. and an easy way to get more fruits and veggie portions into your daily nutrition..

    So come on, share your favorite smoothie ingredients....I'm always looking for new ideas..

    Yummm! I also like chocolate whey protein w/ skim milk and a little bit of coconut extract. Tastes like a liquid Mounds candy bar. Blend w/or without crushed ice.

    Another one is vanilla whey protein with skim milk and add some sugar-free buttterscotch pudding mix for flavor. - Really. it's very tasty.

    - Steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots.
    - TexMex.
    - Or just some good old pizza and beer.

    Of course, it doesn't get blended until it is in my stomach.

    My breakfast consists of slightly modified recipe used by Michael Milkin to beat prostate cancer (along with all the other stuff he was doing). It was related to an article in Fortune that had Milken and LA on the cover a few months back. Anyway, here is the recipe:

    2 bananas
    1 cup blueberries
    1 cup other fruit (i.e. blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or whatever else is in season & cheap.)
    1 cup orange juice
    1 cup apple juice
    2 scoops protein powder (I use Trader Joe's that comes with a scoop so I don't know exact weight/mass of scoops)
    3 green tea capsules (pour the powder from the pills)
    1 cup freshly brewed green tea
    top with ice
    Blend.

    mmmm... Kind of a lot of work but worth it. Plus lots of anti-oxidants. Makes enough for 3-4 servings.
