  1. I have been making a meal replacement shake for several years and I wonder if I am using too many calories. Ingredients: 2 oz water, 1/2 banana, 3 baby carrots, 2 pieces of broccoli, 1/2 large kale leaf. For fruits I have 2 options: 1) 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup frozen pineapple, 1/3 cup frozen mango. Option 2) 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup frozen blackberries, 1/4 cup frozen red raspberries, 1 or 2 frozen strawberries, 1 scoop of whey protein powder, 1 teaspoon stevia, and couple of ice cubes. Then mix in your blender. Thanks for any comments you might have.

  2. How interesting that this smoothie can be warmed up for a winter treat. Being it is still snowing, I think I will try a warm smoothie:) Glad to have many smoothie recipes. I work night shift part time and fitting in a meal can be tricky. Sipping a smoothie through the night seems to work nicely.

  3. I have a Vita Mix machine make smoothies all the time, never have I tryed one with cabbage. Will have to try. Just signed up today. Hard to bleileve how far I have come startin off at 345lbs now 3 1/2 yrs later at 195. Still have a ways to go but I am here to learn more tricks.
