My Favorite Smoothie Recipes!

Hey beauties! I thought I would do a post on my favorite smoothie recipes. I am fairly new to smoothies. I just started drinking them a few months ago when I decided to purchase a Magic Bullet. I must admit that at first I was NOT a fan of them either. It was all I could do to drink half a glass of one. I found that I was wasting so much produce because I was just basically pouring it down the sink. I thought making smoothies was easy but in all honesty the method of making them is easy, it's knowing what ingredients to add together to make a delicious smoothie that can be a bit complicated, at least to me it was. I found that I liked the smoothies that used more fruit than veggies, of course not everyone will be the same in that aspect. I also figured out that although I adore strawberries, I absolutely hate them in my smoothies. I don't know how it is with other smoothie machines but the Magic Bullet does not remove the seeds and I can not stand any type of seed or pealing left in my smoothies. I am a texture girl and THAT texture is just not my thing. 
So, basically I am saying that when it comes to smoothie making don't be surprised if you have to waste a few to find out what combinations you like. It's all part of the process. 
With all that being said, here are three of my favorite "smoothie" type drinks to enjoy!

*About 6 or 7 small ice cubes
*3-4 Frozen peach slices (I buy them in the bag already cut and frozen)
*5-6 frozen green seedless grapes
*3 slices of frozen mango (I also buy these already cut and frozen)
*1/2 cup of crushed pineapples with a little bit of the juice (I use the canned kind)
*1/2 cup pineapple orange juice
*Palm full of spinach & Kayle (I buy this already packaged together in a container)
*A table spoon of honey
*One drop of vanilla extract (optional)

*6-7 small ice cubes
*1 cup of Pineapple Coconut Juice (I buy a glass bottle of this at my HEB grocery store)
*1/2 cup crushed pineapple
*1/2 of a frozen banana
*5-6 frozen green seedless grapes
*Palm full of spinach & Kayle
*4-5 Baby carrots
*Teaspoon of honey

(This is what I drink when I have a chocolate craving and it's not a cheat day)

*8 small ice cubes
*1 1/2 teaspoons of Vanilla Greek Yogurt
*2 table spoons of chocolate syrup
*1 cup of Vanilla Almond Milk

These recipes will make one glass and are based on how much a Magic Bullet container holds. Of course you can make more servings by increasing the amount of ingredients. 
Hope you all enjoy!
