    Don't know if this counts as a smoothie, but I often freeze any bananas that get riper than I like them, and then blend one into 8 ounces of oj - quick and easy, and drinkable.

    Default Banana fruit smoothies

    Puree orange juice and banana until thick and frothy. Add additional fruit and puree until well blended. Enjoy!

    The other day I had some fresh blueberries, some frozen assorted berries and made a yummy smoothie in the blender. I threw that in with a little raw agave nectar and rice milk. It was really yummy and the kids loved it!

    Smoothies are great in the summer and an easy way to get fruit in your diet. It's like ice cream but way healthier.

    I am really bad at eating bananas and the only way I will eat them raw is in a smoothie.

    I've heard greens are good in smoothies, but never tried that but I am thinking that may be a good thing.

    I am a big smoothie fan.

    I prefer juice based smoothies. So my base is either orange, apple or pineapple juice with frozen berries or any other frozen fruit that was on sale (mangos, papaya, etc) has been known to go into mine.

    However, if I am making a "milk" based one then I will grab a fruit yogurt and add that in there as well. yummy.

    I love smoothies too.
    My recipe:
    1 banana
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
    1 cup frozen fruit
    2 T flax meal

    The flax meal is optional. I just add it for the health benefits.

    Anyone have a smoothie recipe that doesn't have a banana in it ( I'm allergic to bananas) and one that isn't so sugar heavy (even from the fruit). All the smoothies I have tried make me feel like a sugar high followed by a crash (or at least a sugar low)

    I'm not a bananna fan myself. You can add a scoop of protein powder(I do that sometimes) or flax seed is good too. Maybe go for low glycemic fruits.
