    The first step is to pour 1/2 cup to 1 cup of low fat milk, yogurt and fruit juice into the blender.

  • 2

    Now add three to six ice cubes for a cold and thick smoothie. Remember the more ice you use the thicker your smoothie will be.

  • 3

    Now you need to add some fibre in your drink for which you need 1/2 cup of bran cereal, 2 tablespoon bran, or 3/4 cup of microwaved oatmeal.

  • 4

    Your smoothie will be incomplete without fresh fruits, so wash some berries, bananas or pineapples and add them in the blender.

  • 5

    Now, to make your power smoothie really strong, add a tablespoon of chocolate or vanilla whey powder.

  • 6

    This drink is already nutritious, but for more nutrients, you can add a tablespoon of ground flax.

  • 7

    Once you have everything in the blender, it is time to close the lid and turn the blender on.

  • 8

    Keep blending for about 30 seconds to a minute for everything to mash up.

  • 9

    If the smoothie is not thick enough you can add some ice or fruit and blend a little more.

  • 10

    Now stop and dip a spoon to see if your smoothie is really smooth. There shouldn’t be solid pieces of anything in the blender.

    Once it is blended just the way you like it, pour it in a glass and enjoy this nutritious power fruit smoothie.
