I think it is very funny that this thread turned into "What is your favorite smoothie recipe?" :lol:

I don't mind at all though because I LOVE smoothies and am enjoying all these new recipes. Keep 'em comin!!

One I try from time to time is:
- Frozen fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
- 1/2 banana or a whole one whatever you like
- some pineapple or peaches
- low-fat yogurt - almost any flavor works
- some orange juice
- little bit of ice (the frozen fruit replaces some of the ice so there is more flavor)

I am never specific on measurements, I just throw in how much I want.

Wow, I thought I was eating relatively healthy, but you guys have me beat by a mile... as long as these blender blades are actually spinning and these smoothies are actually being consumed, that is! :wink:

And yeah this whole topic has gotten way off track but since it was off-topic (in the wrong forum) to begin with I think we'll just leave it as-is where-is and marvel at its eccentricity. At least everybody's playing nicely despite ample pre-smoothie opportunity to not do so... reason enough for mods to Butt Out.

My favorite includes lime juice, triple sec, and some tequila all blended together and served in salt rimmed glass - mmmmmmmmm - margarita.... OH YEAH BABY!!!!

Actually, I plan on trying some of the smoothie recipes... Banana-based ones sound the best....

Speaking of libations, I tried a martini for the first time on my vacation last week. I always thought they were more of a "hard" drink. I was surprised at how smooth it was. :D
Just because your hate is masked by "free thinking" or being "open-minded" does not make it right.

Be careful. They can REALLY sneak up on you.

Our hotel had a free guest reception each night with food and drinks; it was very nice, especially considering it was free.

Anyway, they made their "signature" martini which used some sort of lemon liqueur. It was great, but we only had one each night before jotting off to do whatever we had planned for the evening.

Bananas do wonders because they are so sweet. Without bananas, you risk a very sour drink. Watermelon also works.

For drinks with more of a kick, one of my favorites is brilliant in its simplicity.

--About 1/3 can of frozen limeade concentrate (Albertsons store brand is the best)
--Ice
--As much vodka as you want (you'll never taste it)
--a splash of water to get desired thickness (optional)
