Dan Stoner's Smoothie Milkshake recipe.

I'm not an exact measurement kind of guy... this recipe makes enough smoothie for 2 - 4 people.

Part 1

  • 2 or 3 handfulls of Spinach, Kale, or other salad greens
  • Veggies such as carrots or zucchini
  • 1 or 2 ripe bananas
  • Tablespoon of Protein powder (I use Great Lakes Gelatin)
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • Other fresh fruit such as pears, apple
  • 1/3 stick of creme cheese (Philadelphia original)
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Whole milk
  • Greek Yogurt (not low fat)
  • Agave nectar (light colored)
  • splash of vanilla extract

Part 2

  • Frozen fruits such as blueberries, seedless grapes, apple slices, pear slices, strawberries
  • handfull of Ice


Tips / Notes

This smoothie is full of delicious, healthy, fat and lots of nutrients! None of these ingredients are "Light" or "Low Fat" or "Nonfat". Some vegetable flavors hide better than others... baby spinach, baby kale, carrots, zucchini all work reasonably well.

I usually add the ingredients in two parts so I only have to remove the lid once during the whole process.  I add the "warmer" ingredients first and the frozen fruit / ice last.

The secret ingredients that really make the creamy smoothie texture are the cream cheese and frozen apple slices. The smoothie needs less than 1 cup of liquids which can be a mixture of milk, cream, or fruit juice.

Using an entire avocado seems to affect the flavor a little too much. Cover the extra avocado half with plastic rap and stick it in the fridge, it will stay fresh for up to a week (if the surface turns brown, just scrape that off with a butter knife).

Many fruits can be frozen.  Strawberries taste great but the seeds tend to make the smoothie gritty. Sliced apples, pears, and seedless grapes that are a little beyond their prime (or come home from school uneaten in the kid's lunchbox) can be frozen. The more frozen fruit added to the smoothie the less ice is needed.

I have a Ninja blender. I have never used a Vitamix or Blendtec. The Ninja gets the job done and actually does a good job of handling these particular ingredients. My technique with the Ninja is to hit the Pulse button a few times until the big chunks are taken care of, then run the blender long enought to make sure there aren't any chunks.
