Smoothies?

Any fellow smoothie fans here?
I'm making them again since it's summertime here, and that gets me in the mood for smoothies!
Do you guys have your own special recipes? I'd like to know what you guys put in them going to the market tomorrow so I'll get plenty of fresh summerfruit to put in there, any advice on great combinations?

anything with frozen strawberries and tequila works for me

fresh fruit is good but frozen works better because it makes it blend much colder and thicker. You can buy your fruit fresh, then slice it up and freeze it, that works great.

Yes, I started making smoothies, too, and would like some ideas as well.

I generally use frozen blackberries, raspberries and strawberries for fruit. I'll also use a fruit juice of some kind, and a frozen daquiri mix or something if I want alcohol in it. I'm pretty boring when it comes to smoothies, but that's my favourite way of making them.

I'm too lazy to make them on my own so I go to the store and they make it for me

I like pineapple and banana

I hadn't even considered putting alcohol in it yet... I only have bacardi and baileys atm, perhaps baileys would add some nice flavour.. tropical ish..

Glad to see there are so many smoothie lovers here I'll certainly try the freezing trick before blending tomorrow!

Bacardi would be excellent!

I'm definitely going to stock up on the fruit this weekend. Now I've got a craving for smoothies!

I do this a lot this time of year. Frozen bananas get a little brown, but they still taste the same. I put about half of a frozen banana and a handful of frozen strawberries into the blender, then fill the blender with milk until it covers the fruit. It's so good and so healthy, too.

I used to make one everyday. I'd use fresh strawberries, fresh raspberries, and then either use a few scoops of raspberry sherbet, or 2-3 of these popsicles, and blend in the blender

Smoothies No alcohol because I'm home for the summer, but that sounds sooo good.

But I usually do a banana, some frozen strawberries, a yogurt (either vanilla, strawberry, or strawberry banana) and some milk. YUM! If I have other fruit in the house I like to add some pineapple too. Today I'm gonna cheat on my diet and make it with vanilla ice cream instead of milk and yogurt

milk, ice, honey, yogurt, a little bit of sugar and then whatever fruit you want. Besides alcohol, you can always add a coffee, vanilla, almond or any other flavor extra to give it a different taste.
