"This is a great smoothie consisting of fruit, fruit juice and ice. I like to use whatever fresh fruits I crave that day. Any kind of berry, mangos, papayas, kiwi fruit, et cetera make a great smoothie. Experiment with your favorites!" — STARGIRL577

banana, broken into chunks
We loved this!! I used half a can of pineapple chunks and its juice instead of peaches and just plain orange juice instead of the mango-orange juice(didn't have any of either ingrediant on hand). Will make many mornings to come. And this is very "basic," you can add/subtract fruits you prefer or have around the house.
Only O.K. It just tasted like a lot of fruit blended together. Not very smooth, not very sweet. Will look for another smoothie recipe next time.
We enjoyed trying your basic smoothie recipe in
different ways. The first time we made it with
tropical fruits, papaya, mango, canned and orange
juice. Other times we just used what we had around
the house...which is usually ripe bananas and strawberries, our family likes to add a couple of
teaspoons of vanilla and we sprinkle it with a bit
of cinnamon powder just to give it an extra kick.
Another possibility is making it with milk instead
of water, this is great when you do not have time
to have a sit-down meal. Good basic recipe. Thank
I've been making them with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, a banana and apple juice and it is stiff competition for my favorite juice bars 'banana berry' flavor!
Delicious recipe! We scaled it down to 2 servings and used frozen strawberries & bananas, orange juice, and a 4oz can of peaches in heavy syrup. We left out the ice. We will make this again.
This recipe is a nice starting point... it's got a good balance between ice, fruit, and juice. I used 1 peach, 1/2 quart of strawberries, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup of orange pineapple juice, and a handful of ice. It turned out well!
Enjoy how adaptable this recipe is to almost any fruit combination. Thanks for sharing.
This was a great recipe. Thanks for submitting.
