This is a great smoothie for breakfast - and sometimes dinner! You can substitute the orange juice with any mix of juices or even soy milk! The soy milk adds more of a milk shake quality than the juice does.

Very good. I used an orange pineapple banana juice blend. My kids and I really liked it. I think next time I'll add some strawberries. NOTE: This makes great healthy frozen pops too. I just pour the smoothie mixture into dixie cups and stick in the freezer and when the mixture has firmed up I stick in a popsicle stick. Read More

Made this as directed (with no vanilla) at first. But Hubs found this not very purple-y and also missed the creaminess of similar drinks. So as written this was only average for him - not a big hit. Once I added more blueberries some vanilla yogurt and a little milk however it was much improved at least for him. Read More

I replaced the orange juice with fat-free vanilla yogurt and it was much better. The juice made it too tart; this is much tastier as a creamy smoothie than a juicy smoothie. Read More

I substituted half of the orange juice for vanilla-flavored soy milk. I had bananas, but they were not frozen. So, I added 1 cup of crushed ice. When this was blended with the rest of the ingredients I had a very cold, creamy, tasty smoothie. Thanks for this great recipe! Read More

YUM! I made this every morning this past week for breakfast. I need to go restock my ingredients because I have no plans to stop now! Just a hint to those who are rushed in the morning - take time to rinse your blender and your glasses right away otherwise the blueberries make a hard to clean mess if you wait! Thanks so much for this great healthy recipe. I already feel more energetic with this healthy start to my day. Read More

I am a new vegetarian and an avid smoothie fan. I didn't think much could compete with the recipes in the Super Smoothies book but this particular one has a lot of them beat. The only pre prep is making sure you freeze your fruit. I did make mine with the honey vanilla and vanilla soy milk it was outstanding!! Read More

This was wonderful! However I used mixed fruit instead of just blueberries. What a GREAT healthy way to satisfy a sweet craving. I also threw in a little crushed ice as well. Read More

Very tasty! I used 1/2 cup orange juice 1/2 cup soy milk and 1/2 cup plain yogurt. The consistency was perfect - not too thick and not too thin. Read More
