Cottage cheese thickens my smoothies and has alot of protein. .5 c of cottage cheese+.5 milk and you have a good thick base. Then just add fruit and anything else you like.

I use FF plain yogurt instead of milk and freeze my fruit or veggies before blending, they come out thick and cold

Mango will thicken it, too emoticon

Also, you can add BENEFIBER (pkg. says it doesn't thicken, but it does).

Hi Mandy,

Can you please let me know what you think about PGX? I'm thinking of purchasing it.

Thank you very much.

PGX powder... you can also add it to soups and stews... it will keep you full and make things thicker. Start with a small amount first. It is simply a natural fiber supplement and it comes in flavors or plain or in pills. I love this stuff.

How about freezing the liquid you are using.....or half of it before you make the smoothie.
