Vanilla Smoothie Recipe - Tasty Dessert Smoothies

Vanilla smoothie recipe - Why not enjoy dessert smoothies and still add a healthy dose of nutrients into your life? Every perfect recipe for a vanilla smoothie has its secret.

#1 Secret for Vanilla Smoothies

Try using real vanilla bean in your recipes. This adds a much fuller flavor than the cheap imitation vanilla extract.

Unfortunately... the actual vanilla beans are super expensive. If your budget doesn't allow for this big of a purchase, I would highly recommend you try NuNaturals Vanilla Extract. It is the healthiest choice for the money.

It is extremely hard to find vanilla extract that doesn't contain either sugar or corn syrup. Go ahead... look in the cupboard. See what kind of additives are in your extract. You just might be surprised.

If you want a healthier option, I buy mine at iHerb.com.

Now... let's get to the yummy part!
