Smoothies recipes

Can someone give me some detailed recipes for delicious smoothies. I tried one with forzen fruit, orange juice, and strawberry yogurt but I think I put in too much of some and not enough of something else and it was kind of clumpy and thick not like a smoohtie at all. Any suggestions?

1 cup skim milk
mini scoop frozen vanilla yogurt
1 banana
frozen mango
frozen peaches
frozen blueberries
strawberries

this would make you a BIG smoothie, but you could just use 1/2 cup of milk, half a banana etc. and go light on the other fruits... it's good!

Thanks this does sound good. How long do I blend these smoothies in the blender?

1/2 cup milk
enough orange juice to make the milk turn light orange
frozen strawberries and bananna or frozen strawberries and frozen peaches -only enough to fill the liquid, so that the frozen fruit is under the juice and milk and not coming up out of it

Let the fruit melt a bit before you start blending, then puree until there's no chunks left. This is really refreshing.

Delicious Smoothie!

My boyfriend and I have a smoothie for breakfast pretty much every morning. I thoroughly enjoy them and look forward to them! We each have a 16 oz. glass of the smoothie. But here is the recipe:

frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, peaches, etc.)
1 banana
FF Vanilla yogurt (2-3 scoops)
O.J. (just enough to cover the fruit in the blender)

Blend and Enjoy! Using blueberries and strawberries gives it a beautiful redish purplish color! Let me know if you try it!

These all sound great. If you want to add a little something extra (and heatlhy) to any of these, try adding a tbsp of honey, and a tbsp of ground flax seed. Makes for a great healthy breakfast.

Anyone have a smoothie recipe for someone who does not eat fruit of any kind?

Sure!
I used to work at Jamba Juice years ago, and if I remember correctly, they have two without fruit. I can't remember the exact proportions, so hope this is close:

Peanut butter:
8 oz chocolate or vanilla soymilk
2 tbs (1 would probably work too) smooth peanut butter
1 c. frozen vanilla icecream, sorbet, yogurt, or anything with similar consistencey
1 c. chopped ice

Chocolate
8 oz chocolate soy milk
2 squirts chocolate sauce (like hershey's or something)
1 c. frozen vanilla icecream, sorbet, yogurt, or anything with similar consistencey
1 c. chopped ice

Hope this works! You can choose lower fat/calorie/carb versions of the ingredients to change the calorie total.

1 c frozen blueberries
2 T milled flax seeds
2.5 c cold water

Okay,
actually, this is not a smoothie per se, but a recipe for a drink mix.
Although if you omit the Knob Creek, it makes a great smoothie.

Knob Creek Whisky

Orange / pineapple / Passion fruit juice
Maraschino cherries (with some of the syrup)
Frozen orange juice
Frozen Lemonade
1 banana
ice.

Toss it all in a blender until smooth.
I haven't tried it, but I'd bet it would be good with a scoop of Fage 0% FF yogurt as well... :-)

It's awesome with the whisky, but not bad without ;-)
