I put in a couple bananas (they're cheaper than other stuff,) 3 cups almond milk, freshly ground flax, raw honey, frozen mango. Also Amande almond milk yogurt. If the kids aren't watching I make a blueberry smoothie which has all the above but less frozen mango. In its place I put frozen spinach and frozen greens from WF (kale, collards, and mustard greens, I think,) plus frozen blueberries. 


You can add raw egg, almond butter, and coconut oil. All will change their taste and caloric count. We also sometimes use frozen strawberries.

Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Pineapple make smoothies amazing!  Love it.  We either use canned coconut milk or the vanilla boxed kind from trader joe's and whatever fruit we have on hand.  Usually it's banana and a handful of frozen organic berries (I get 3 lb bags from Costco and pull berries out as needed).  Strawberry, banana, and pineapple are sooo good!

Definitely yogurt, bananas, berries, sometimes carrots, sometimes spinach....hemp powder can be good...or just plan fruit and yogurt. Throwing ground flax in is always a good idea!
