Visitors: 194

You can throw just about anything in a smoothie to enhance its flavor such as honey, tofu, jams, any combination of fruits, peanut butter, juices, etc. , but keep in mind it will effect the nutritional values.

1/2 cups frozen whole berries (use blackberries, strawberries or raspberries)
1 cup nonfat soy milk
3/4 teaspoons almond extract
1/2 cups silken tofu (about 4 ounces)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Makes 2 smoothies.

Good to Know:

"Omega-6 fats in Almonds boost E1 levels, key to maintaining energy and mood", explains Dr. Teitlbaum.

Almonds contain Magnesuim which helps the brain produce dopamine, a neuro transmitter that stabilizes mood swings caused by surging progesterone during ovulation - says Carolyn Dean, M. D. , N. D. , outhor od The Miracle of Magnesium.

More Health Bonus:

Raspberries : The super champion of fiber, just 1 cup of these berries meets over 40% or your daily value. 1 cup = 8 grams

Protech your eyes with Raspberries. These ruby fruits ar chokeful of carotenoids, antioxidant compounds that help prevent age-related macular degeneration.

Here are some Hints & Tips for Perfect Smoothies:

You can add any powdered product and it won't affect taste, such as protein powder, wheat germ, oatmeal, 100% bran cereal, soy powder, rice powder, flax seed oil, bee pollen, etc. All of these products are available in health food stores.

Make sure that the items are smaller than a golf ball so they will blend completely. Add the liquid ingredients next.

Stop the blender and check to see if the ingredients are well blended. Sometimes the frozen fruit will jam under the blade. If there is jammed fruit, use a spatula to unjam the fruit, and blend again.

If the shake/smoothie is too thin, add more fruit or ice. If it’s too thick, add more liquid.
