I make a smoothie about ten minutes after I wake up. Like, every morning. Of course, It comes after I’ve fed and cuddled with our kitty and hit the start button on the coffee maker – but before I fire up the laptop and start going through my emails. It started a few years ago as a mild effort to start my day off right (and up my fruit intake) – and has morphed into a ritual that if I skip, feels like a betrayal to my body. You could say I’m addicted to my daily dose of antioxidants via blueberry, banana and mango infusion (with a decent sized scoop of flaxseed and a dash of soy or almond milk for good measure). Now I’m a pro. I’ve graduated from just making smoothies in the morning, to making vegetable purees for soups and potages. And all that healthy blending was like a how-to course for margarita night. But that’s another post altogether!

I make smoothies every day too! Right after my workout. Right now I have an older Ninja, it’s good but not as fancy as the new ones, so for some veggies I have to juice them in my Jack Lalanne juicer first then put them in the blender. Too many steps and too much cleaning!

I was making a smoothie a day, mostly for breakfast, but my blender just up and stopped working about a week ago. I’ve been blender shopping and smoothie coveting since then. There’s just nothing like sipping on a deliciously cold, healthy smoothie that’s based on your body’s cravings and needs, especially first thing in the morning when the summer heat starts to rise. I just love my morning smoothie ritual!

I don’t make them at all! My blender is getting old and just gives me gritty paste when I make smoothies. I am kind of cheap so I’m have been putting off getting a good blender. This would be awesome to win I could get back to having smoothies more often

I make smoothies probably 4 or 5 times a week! Sometimes it will be the fruit smoothies in the mornings, like you make – but I’ve also made a LOT of coffee based smoothies as afternoon pick-me-ups that are slightly more filling than just a regular cup of coffee. Ingredients I’ve used:
brewed coffee/instant coffee granules
honey/sweetener of your choice (optional)
protein powder (optional)
cocoa powder (optional)
liquid of your choice (I use almond milk)
Love your blog! xx
A couple of times a week – my boys love smoothies so I usually make one for them as a quick snack in between meals.
Not very often because I don’t have a blender.
I make a smoothie most every morning. It is a great way to ensure I get my breakfast, and can grab and go.
I make smoothies every single day! My go-to is half a package of frozen leaf spinach, one small banana, a little bit of lemon juice, a big handful of frozen blueberries or frozen mixed berries, and enough water to smooth it out. My Magic Bullet only has one blade that works any more, so it can’t handle ice. Still, it’s like an energy shot for my body and always makes me happy and feel healthy. I am thinking about getting an upgraded gizmo that can handle a wider variety of produce for more smoothie awesomeness!
I usually start my day off with a smoothie in the morning, mostly for on the go, and then i also have one when i get home. So twice a day!
I make smoothies a few time per week.
I have heard the Ninja is amazing!
I make my own very rarely, actually. I drink smoothies since the cook I’m working under makes them for me all the time, but I never got around to buying my own blender. He usually uses bananas, strawberries and avocado and they’re pretty delicious!
We make them once a week!
Almost daily! We love them!
I make them twice a week.
Am wild about the fruit smoothies, especially with the temps getting warmer.Temp was already 88 @ 9 AM today. A new blender would really kick start the event. Plus….hey….my nickname IS Ninja! How cool is that?! 🙂 Good Luck to all!
I also make one very morning. It’s how I make sure I get all my greens!
We make them almost daily in the summer (in our old, tired blender). Not as much in the winter.

It depends on the season and what fresh produce is in season. In the summer, I love making berry smoothies with my son!
I make them whenever I can, usually 2 or 3 times a week.
My blender is a bit of a dud, so I haven’t been making smoothies for a while. It would be great to have an upgrade!
