it sounds strange to add granola to a smoothie. What does that do to it? Does it change the taste?

I add any leftover green tea or roobios for liquid so my hubby gets the antioxdant. Any tea will do. I add whey protein and spinach. 1 banana only, lowfat or ff yogurt. To the gal in Argentina... make sure you peel the ripe bananas and freeze them in a plastic bag or some kind. If you leave the peel on they turn black and mushy. Good health and God bless~

I got this one from Runner's World: 1/2 c NF yogurt (I use Stonyfield Farms) 1/2 c frozen blueberries or other berries 2 tbsp ground flax 1/4 c rolled oats (I actually use a 5-grain blend) (I also add a tblsp of berry flavored Vega whole food health optimizer) about a cup of water It is fabulous

I love this, it's soo good. It really helps on Monday mornings especially!!!

I substitute kefir for yogurt, add a little almond milk, oats instead of granola, a bit of ground flaxseed, some berries (and less or no banana), a raw egg, and some greens plus! Yum! Lower glycemic index, more protein, get my Omega 3s, probiotics, etc.

Instead of using sugar or honey us agave nectar. It has a low glycemic index and is 1 1/2 times sweeter than sugar so you use less.

On the Weight Watchers plan, this smoothie is 7 points plus. I just made it with blueberries, a banana, 1/4 cup of vanilla lite soy milk and 1/2 cup of ff plain yogurt, and brought the recipe down to 2 points plus. no need to add any sugar, honey or agave. tastes great!

For those of you allergic to bananas...I use frozen mango for smoothness. The Avacado sounds like a good idea, I'll have to try it.
