What do you like in your fruit smoothies?

I jut got a new blender and am excited to make my kids smoothies. I love ones with cranberries, but the kids don't. So I need ideas!

I plan on going to the farmers market tomorrow. I think the only think here that is fruiting right now is cherries. But later in the summer we would like to buy most of our fruit from the farmers market.

  • Only fruit, no sweeteners, no dairy. I freeze fruit when it's in season (strawberries & blueberries from u-pick places, kiwi, mangoes, peaches, etc), peel & chunk what's necessary, spread on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, freeze, and throw in freezer bags when frozen. When we want smoothies, I fill the blender about half full with whatever variety of frozen fruit sounds good, throw in a handful of fresh spinach, a handful of baby carrots, maybe a banana or two, an avocodo if we have any, and I use 100% juice (apple or orange, usually) or water. My kids love it just like that. No need to sweeten what's already sweet, and bananas & avocados make them creamy instead of yogurt or milk or something like that.
