We All Scream for Nice Cream. A blend between frozen yogurt and ice cream, "nice" cream is the easiest and healthiest way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Made with just a frozen banana, your choice of milk, and any toppings, you'll never be limited to the ice cream flavors at the grocery store.

When choosing a powder, the brand and nutritional profile are the two most important things to consider, Davenport says.

Protein supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so research safe brands before purchasing. (Start with our easy-to-follow supplement guide.)

Research can also help you navigate the options on the supplement shelves. Apple Pie Smoothie  Skip the oven, brown sugar, and butter and blend up this dessert-like smoothie instead.

Fresh or frozen, it doesn’t matter. They’ll eat them. So it’s really no surprise that blueberries came to mind while trying to expand our repertoire of smoothie flavors. I paired the berries with bananas; and after trying it with both frozen and fresh bananas, we all decided it was better with frozen. Frozen bananas are the first ingredient I put into the blender.
