LaLa .... this is a good basic smoothie recipe where you can sub any of the fruits you want. Strawberry & Cantaloupe is good. I also like to use HoneyDew Melon or Raspberries or Blackberries. It's a good way to get in some blueberries- a blue smoothie is pretty cool looking. And blue berries are sooooo good for you. Just experiment and find your own favorites! smile.gif

I made the smoothie today and it was wonderful! But I used light n healthy orange juice by tropicana and I think it was the orange juice that was leaving a kinda peppery taste in my mouth. I am not sure tho. Do you think it would be okay to substitute the oj for 2% milk?

I would use regular unsweetened OJ instead of the light stuff ... i think the light is too processed and has a strange after taste.
