Here is what you can add to make it more healthy, I learned these things when I worked in a health food store when I was in high school over 30 years ago, wow am I that old already !!
Lecithin granules;Lecithin is a fat emulsifier that helps your body break down fat and flush it from your body its great for you skin, hair and digestive system but the best thing about it, is it makes your drinks creamy and sweet naturally!
any protein powder is fine jut look out for the calories in it, it can really vary
Substitute Milk for Soy Milk
the soy milk that is produce these day taste really great and some are vanilla or chocolate flavored.
NEVER ADD SUGAR !
Sugar is so bad for your body but if you need it to be a little sweeter, which don’t feel guilty I love sweets!, add honey instead of sugar. Honey is actually incredibly good for your body and is a natural healer and is just allover a great beauty and healthy food!
Ok here is where I contradict my healthy side...
At any time it is ok to use Ice Cream to make it extra rich and creamy to ANY Smoothie recipe including a tropical smoothie and turn it into a shake, yummmmy
