Smoothies are a great healthy way to kick start your metabolism and your day!

We made this smoothie this morning:


  • 4 ounces plain, low-fat soy milk
  • 4 ounces pomegranate juice
  • 4 ounces frozen banana (we used fresh)
  • 4 ounces frozen strawberries
  • 4 ounces frozen blueberries
  • 4 ounces frozen raspberries


Combine the soy milk, juice, banana, strawberries, blueberries, and the raspberries in the carafe of a blender. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 8 hours.

In the morning, or when the fruit is partially thawed, put the carafe on the base of the blender, start at the lowest speed and slowly accelerate to medium, until you achieve a vortex. Blend on medium for 1 minute. Increase the speed to high and blend for an additional minute. Serve immediately.

Tips: We did not leave the fruit overnight to thaw. We simply put it all in the blender when we got up, went and got ready and 30 min. later it was ready to blend and drink before we hit the road to start the day.

Do you have any great smoothie recipes? Let us know!
