A bannana, some apple or orange juice, 1/2 mango. Mmmmmm.
Strawberries and bannana work well too, with apple juice.
Papaya and mango with pineapple juice works well- but not with heartburn.... that just hurts.

We've got smoothie book. Some really nice ones, but some really dodgy sounding things too

One of the ones on the cover looks like its got noodles in it, but on closer inspection I think its strips of lemon peel

-The Lounge lizzard looks aesthetically pleasing from the tropical teasers secton

-Clear Ahed looks nice from the "good health" bit

-Power pack (the one I saw on the cover) is in the high energy smoothies....Turns out to be orange rind

I had a nice smoothie when I stayed in Bristol, it was made with soya yoghurt and pumpkin seeds... not quite sure what else. I'll look into it

I wish I could find pictures of these things...You'd want to drink them no matter what they tasted like

Never really liked pumpkin that much. Doesn't have too stronger taste and I get force fed it surrounding halloween

Smoothies are such a good way to get loads of fruit or veg in one hit. I make a fruit smoothie every morning so I tend to go for basic stuff. Bananas are fantastic with almost everything, they add thickness to any mixture, so I'll use 1 or 2 bananas with either kiwi fruit, apricots, plums, sharon fruit etc etc. Mango is fantastic. I'll add either natural live yoghurt, or an organic fruit yoghurt (if I'm feeling naughty!), either freshly squeezed orange or from a carton, soya or rice milk. God anything really! You can add things like wheatgerm as well, and mixed ground seeds, spirulina (very very good for ya!) erm, sometimes when I remember, I'll add silken tofu, which makes it very thick but nice and creamy. You can also buy frozen summer fruits which are great for the winter.

My biggest piece of advice is just to experiment. Oh and you have to try this as a treat: Maple, banana and pecan smoothie. Blend those with some natural yoghurt (if you want) and soya/rice or oat milk, or cow's milk if you like. It's very yummy!!!! :wiggle:

It's a good idea Ghost but the fresher the fruit the more nutritional value it has. Fruit n veg decrease in nutritional value through exposure to light and air - it's why refrigeration can improve the life of them - dark and cold.

Honeydew melon and pineapple is my favourite. Add unflavoured soya yoghurt/ice cream or ordinary yoghurt/ice cream if you want it thickened up. I don't often add bananas to my smoothies as I find they overpower the other flavours.
