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!

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. Read More

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. Read More

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 you Janelle! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

As the name states, it's a BASIC recipe. I hate seeing people lower a recipe's rating because they don't know how to cook. This recipe is perfect as a starting point to alter to one's tastes. Try different fruits, different juices, different amounts of everything to your taste. Another alternative is to add vanilla flavored soy milk for a hint of vanilla or cream. But remember, if you alter a recipe too much, don't blame the recipe, blame the cook. ;) Read More
