I've been eating a smoothie almost every weekday for breakfast for the past 5 years (since I read Eat To Live). I use a vita-mix. This is my all time favorite.

Prep time:
Cook time:
Servings: 2


Cost per serving $6.12 view details
  • 1 large apple (braeburn, fuji, gala, etc.),, seeds & all.
  • 1 orange, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cups frozen Mango pieces
  • 1 cup frozen mixed blueberries, blackberries & raspberries
  • 1 scoop vanilla flavored soy protein powder
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored soy milk


  1. Put the fresh fruit (I leave just a tad of peel on the orange for flavor) and rest of ingredients in the blender/vita mix
  2. Run on medium, pushing down with an instrument until the mixture is blending
  3. Turn to high and leave for 30-60 seconds
  4. Pour and drink!
  5. A few variations I might recommend. My wife Nancy prefers this without the protein powder. If you don't like Soy, feel free to substitute another protein powder and/or low fat or rice milk. I used to put in some yogurt, but found it added calories without adding much flavor or healthy micro-nutrients. I occasionally throw in a Banana, Peach, Kiwi, or Melon. Tangerines are also a nice, slightly more tart substitute for oranges. Feel free to mix and match...but the basic is still my favorite!

    I like it with the protein powder...but sometimes I substitute yogurt and I like that as well. It is a little bit more tart with the yogurt.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

      This is one of best, richest smoothies I've tasted. Easy to make too. Thanks for sharing!

        I've started putting a spoonful of ground flaxseed in this smoothie. It doesn't taste great, but the flavor is masked pretty well by the fruit. So far, the kids have not complained!
