One of my father’s favorite anytime indulgences is making a smoothie with a ripe banana, some of our homemade plum jam, plain yogurt, and honey. In the late fall, he’ll swap out the jam for ripe kiwi-fruit.

Personally, I’m a blueberry and strawberry fan. Actually, I can’t remember ever meeting a smoothie I didn’t like (have great plans for the papaya ripening on the counter).

Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? If so, please let us know in the comments.

In the meantime, what follows is a super simple recipe for either a strawberry or blueberry smoothie.

    I practically live on smoothies! I’m constantly expirimenting with all sorts of fruits. This is a smoothie recpie that I found in a cook book that I think is execptionally wonderful for people who want to get in their daily serving of green veggies:

    1(?)cup white grape juice
    1 cup green grapes
    1/2 a cucumber, seeded

    Blend in a blender until smooth.

    Elise, my mother always made us banana smoothies when we were kids. I think it started because my brother and I had an uneven number of bananas to fight over. Always very simple, never measured, but very different from all these ideas, as far as I can see. We never used berries, or yogurt, or tofu.
    My mother always did this:

    Ice (couple handfuls)
    Milk (1 cup?)
    Bananas (2 or 3)
    heaping Tbsp(s) of frozen orange juice concentrate

    The concentrate makes it tangy, the banana makes it creamy. It’s very good. I still make this for my kids.

    My favorite Smoothie recipe calls for:

    10oz frozen Blueberries
    3-4 frozen Strawberries
    3Tblspoons of Soy Protein powder
    about 3/4-1 cup lowfat milk

    This makes aprox 1 quart of smoothie.

    This breakfast for me. I make it all the time. I’m totally going to try a bunch of the other recipes here, though. They all look so good!

    I pretty much use your ingredients except for the ice I use frozen fruits, apple juice or pineapple juice, 3 tablespoons egg white and a 1/2 cup oatmeal. (That breakfast for me!!)
