Smoothies

I love them but I would like to start making them so I can cut the spending of money at the local smoothie shop. Who here has a good recipe for tasty smoothies?

I'm waiting for Jeff to pop in with his obligatory "We need a food forum" post.

I usually throw bananas, milk, a tablespoon of peanut butter and some honey and ice cubes into the blender for a quick breakfast. It's very yum.

If you freeze your fruit ahead of time, you can just use milk or juice and leave out the ice. I like trying different juices as a smoothie base. V8 Splash smoothie juice and Bolthouse Farms smoothie juice are both good to start.

I think I'll go put some strawberries in the freezer now for a smoothie in the morning

They have ready made frozen smoothie mixes and frozen fruit at the grocery stores freezer section, just add milk, fruit juice, yogurt and you're all set!

This is how I make my berry one, pretty much on a daily basis:

1 Eddy's strawberry bar (it's like a popcicle w/ fruit chunks in it)

about 5 strawberries

as many raspberries as I can afford (8 oz is good)

a few scoops of raspberry sherbet or frozen yogurt


I make that and it's pretty much a meal for me

My wife makes one for the kids before swim practice. She experiments with a variety of ingredients:

milk (fresh and non-fat powder)
fresh fruit (banana, strawberry, raspberry, etc.)
fruit juices
peanut butter
yogurt
protein powders
