Because I don't have a juice machine, I added a little orange juice to get the ingredients moving in my blender. I skipped the mint because the kids don't like it. We all enjoyed this. EDITED: I make this often during the summer and add a spoonful or two of nonfat greek yogurt and a little vanilla extract which makes it creamy and delicious--very similar to an Orange Julius but with half the fat!

I don’t have a juice machine, but Hubs wanted a smoothie this morning and these were exactly the fruits I was looking for. An added bonus? – no yogurt. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of pouring this over ice anyway. So I blended the fruits as called for, using twice as many (frozen) raspberries, mainly just to use them up, a handful of ice and some milk to make the blender go. Knowing Hubs would prefer this, I skipped the mint in the mix, using it just for garnish. This worked well and tasted good too – only problem was that it needed some sweetness, so I mixed in Splenda to taste. Hubs loved it. I don’t drink smoothies myself, I just make them, so the final review is his – pleasantly sweet, filling, great, balanced blend of flavors and, surprisingly, he didn’t miss the typical yogurt-based smoothie. (Please note that this recipe calls for a juice machine, not a blender! The blender will not move without added liquid!)

This is a terrific start to a great smoothie. In a blender place a frozen banana, frozen berries and nonfat plain yogurt to make a complete breakfast drink. Delicious! Using orange juice also works well. Experiment!

Great recipe. Been making this type drink in my magic bullet for years. If I need to make a larger one, I use my nutri-bullet. I keep a bag of frozen wild blueberries and pineapple chunks in my freezer all the time. I also freeze bananas that are starting to be overripe. I leave out the mint due to personal preference. No need to pour over ice. The more frozen fruits you use, the thicker it will become. I use the same ingredients as the recipe, minus the mint. In my magic bullet My favorite is to use - one orange, a banana, berries, couple chunks of pineapple, and Activia if I'm in the mood. It is such a versatile recipe. I just keep putting fruit in until it is full. One orange makes enough liquid for it. Yummy

I've been making almost this exact drink for over a quarter century to have with a plain bagel or toast for most breakfasts during the week!! What I do differently is use a blender with 6 to 8 oz orange juice (3 to 4 oranges), 1 cup of raspberries, 1 banana and instead of using mint I add a couple of heaping tablespoons of vanilla flavored protein powder for the flavor twist and the extra nutrition it bestows.

Sunshine Juice - what a great name. The sound of title brings happiness to my morning. I don't have a juicer, so I put everything in my Magic Bullet (R) to blend. I started with the oranges so that they would create the juice needed for the other ingredients. Added red raspberries and frozen banana. A delicious breakfast smoothie that contains a day's worth of fruit.

I have a juicer, but put this in a blender instead. 1) Bananas don't juice, and 2) raspberries get mostly shot into the disposal container on mine... Anyway, I had thought I had raspberries, but didn't so I used strawberries instead. Very good drink! I basically had it for lunch. The second time I made it (the next day!) I added a container of Greek strawberry yougurt too. Oh, and I had some pineapple juice on hand, so I used that to get the blender going instead of water or milk.

Wonderful and refreshing! I added an additional approx. cup of chopped ice and water mix to smooth it out more. I also used frozen banana and berries (that's how I store them for smoothies). Love the fact too that I am getting my daily required serving of fruit and good nutrition from this wholesome blend.
