4 South Beach Diet Smoothies Recipes

I’ve been on the South Beach Diet for 4 months now and I’ve found a love for soy milk smoothies and success with weight loss. The smoothie recipes I am sharing are my own that I have created in my kitchen without a web site or recipe book. I prefer a sweet smoothie as an evening snack before bed. I use fresh fruit and frozen fruit depending on what I have in the house. The fruit is frozen most of the time though. I will buy fresh fruit and rinse, cut and freeze it myself so it lasts longer. I also let my smoothies set in the fridge for at least a half hour before drinking them so they thicken. I do not use dairy products because I am lactose intolerant. Feel free to substitute low fat milk for the light soy milk in these recipes. Experiment with different fruit combinations and ingredients. You’ll be surprised what actually tastes wonderful together!

      Your hub is delicious! I have to say that the blueberry almond smoothie is my favorite too. I’ll only replace the artificial sweetener with honey and give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

      Well hello my dear epi! Adding an egg and yogurt is an excellent way to add protein and dairy to your diet. I haven't thought about adding honey, sooo good! There's a local honeybee farm that sells homemade honey at our flea market and I just bought some. Is that the kind you would add?

      ...well I really do love smoothes and there are some really great (and new for me) recipes here to follow - and my own recipe to add yogurt, liquid honey and an egg to the fruit of your choice and juice base ......

      and yes you are a pretty 'smooth' writer yourself Miss Ardie - so glad we met through Facebook.

      Great hub. I'm definitely going to try the strawberry peach one. I also like the idea of being experimental and creating my own blends. Thanks for sharing.
