Q: I'm a college student and I absolutely love having a smoothie for breakfast. However, I wish there was a way I could include some more fiber or something to hold me over a bit longer. This is what I usually include:
6-8 oz. low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons soy milk
1/2 cup frozen or fresh peach
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
What else could I add? I'm allergic to banana (which I hear is a good smoothie builder-upper). I also live in a very small town surrounded by small towns, so my access to any hard-to-find ingredients is limited. Any ideas would be awesome!

Editor: Sara, a few ideas for you: Use whole milk yogurt instead of low-fat, and try to add some ground nuts or flax seeds. Also try an avocado smoothie, or the secret smoothie bulker-upper we talk about below:

• Try This! Add Oatmeal to Smoothies
Readers, what tips do you have for making breakfast smoothies more filling?
