I have used celery, cucumber, zuchinni in mine before. I have a really great blender that makes everything super smooth. that is the key- a high powered blender.

I like the zuchinni the best because its not strong tasting and its a nice texture.

whatever I have on hand, honestly. I just made one with peanut butter, apple, banana, Carnation Instant Breakfast chocolate packet, and milk. But I do normally buy a huge bag of frozen mixed fruit for my smoothies, or to use as ice cubes in my water

Sometimes I’ll do spinach, splash of milk, frozen strawberries and banana. Other times I’ll do a granny smith apple, kiwi, spinach and a splash of juice. I also throw in flax seed sometimes if I remember.  Also I sometimes add Greek yogurt. Just depends on what I have handy.

@MrsSl82be:  I can’t believe I never thought of the frozen fruit as ice before that’s brilliant! We use giant bags in our freezer I need to use more. I might have to try it in sparkling water.

Anything! We started with the Vitamix cookbook and website, but I also like a lot of recipes from Green Smoothie Revolution. Some of them are very “green” though–we started out with the sweeter ones and are trying to move toward using more greens. I agree with @lefeymw: that you definitely need a good blender to get the right consistency.

We typically don’t put anything but fruit and veggies in ours (so no yogurt/milk/soy milk/nuts/sweeteners/etc). For fruits, we usually use some combination of: grapes, apples, bananas, peaches, mangoes, strawberries, pineapple, oranges, pears, or limes. For veggies, we usually use one or more of the following: spinach, romaine, kale, dinosaur kale, swiss chard, or dandelion greens. Sometimes we also use veggies like tomatoes, avocadoes, celery, or carrots, too.

Pretty much whatever I have in the kitchen. Lately, spinach, frozen mixed berries, banana and some mango. I’ve never added peanut butter to mine but now I’m going to start!

@MrsNerdy:  We bought ours with Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards from our wedding! I am seriously obsessed with ours…I use it every single day! I love making soup and pasta sauce in it too. And ice cream–but that’s not so healthy 🙂
