    dessert smoothie:

    1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
    2-3 almond milk ice cubes
    2 tablespoons Greek nonfat or lowfat vanilla yogurt
    8 or 9 dark cocoa dusted almonds
    1 teaspoon cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon chia seeds
    1 teaspoon ground flax seeds
    2 dried figs (softened in water for 30 minutes prior)
    1 tablespoon Jiffy Whipped chocolate peanut butter
    a few chocolate chips
    4 frozen cherries (or 1/2 frozen banana)

    blend for 2 minutes and enjoy. Makes 1 smoothie (small).

    obviously one can play around with and omit or add certain ingredients to any smoothie ... have fun !

    My smoothie of the moment is a Pineapple Ginger Smoothie:

    1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple
    1 banana
    1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I used vanilla, but you can choose your favorite flavor)
    1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
    1/2 cup ice
    1/2 cup pineapple juice or water

    Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.

    Yields: 2 cups smoothie

    The never fail smoothie recipe- one cup juice (your choice), one container yogurt (any kind or flavor), and one cup fruit (any kind) blend in blender or bullet no ice needed. Perfect smoothie every time, millions of combinations

    I follow on facebook & I think they're great. They regularly do 30 day green smoothie challenges and they have loads of recipes for juices, smoothies, vegan & raw vegan food. I like them 'cause they give very detailed descriptions of nutritional values of the recipes and what each ingredient is good for. They're definitely worth having a look at.
