Smoothie Help!

Okay, smoothie lovers. I seek your advice.

Starting tomorrow, March 1, I begin two months of healthy eating (and hopefully it will continue after…) Why two months? My first 10K is March 27 and I just want to be in the best shape/condition possible. I’m working out six days a week and now I’m going to be eating better, too. And then I’m going to continue it in April because I head to Florida in May and my goal is to be beach ready. Like actually wear a bikini for the first time – EVER.... besides as a child. *crossing fingers*

I am starting to make smoothies every morning but I just can’t get them to taste quite right. They are kind of bitter. Here’s the two I’ve made so far this week.

This one featured a whole banana, few strawberries, apricots, vanilla protein powder, little milk and non-fat yogurt. I wasn’t too impressed.

This one was a whole banana, three strawberries, one pineapple piece, peanut butter, vanilla protein powder, little milk, non-fat yogurt and ice. This one tasted bitter, too.

So my question to you is… what kind of healthy smoothies do you like to make? What makes it sweet but still keeps it healthy? I heard I should switch to vanilla or Greek yogurt. Or add honey? Your input is much appreciated!


  1. HONEY! Honey and a bit of vanilla (REAL vanilla...not artificial.)
    And if it suits it...cinnamon.
    I go honey all the way- it's very good for you too:)))
    Woot woo on the healthy eating...I'll be joining you!

  2. HONEY is wonderful! It has made a world's difference - thank you! I just put in a tablespoon and it tastes so delicious!
