    mmmm new blender.... and your putting it to great use too!
    I love putting in some fresh tropical fruit, usually anything works well together and putting frozen yoghurt in with it... hrrrmmm!!! Would go and make myself one now except that its the middle of winter!

    Not sure that it qualifies as a 'smoothie', but every weekday morning, I make myself a 'protein shake', and drink it for breakfast.

    2 Cups milk

    1 egg

    1 scoop protein 'milk & egg' protein powder (approx 24 grams)

    1 smaller scoop lecithin granules (this is not only healthy, it helps to keep the powder mixed)

    optional -

    1 or 2 tablespoons of Milo powder (for chocolatey flavour)

    Blend this all together for a few seconds... drink.

    P.S. I've been drinking this concoction for many many years now... I seem to remain healthier than others around me who tend to get illnesses... but it might just be a coincidence.

    ***I love smoothies but have never made them. Do I need a certain type of blender? What's the cheapest bit of kit that will get me started?***
    You need a blender that's powerful enough to crush ice (most mid-priced models will do this) and a refrigerator/freezer for ice or frozen fruit. There are recipes galore on the internet.

    1 frozen banana

    some chopped frozen pineapple

    some chopped frozen mango

    a little bit of coconut milk

    1/4 to 1/2 cup of rum

    Depending on what you put in your blender will the size matter. I've burnt out blenders time and again. Not enough power. Bought a Vita-Mix. This one has power. Kind of spendy but I believe it was worth it. My morning smoothie consists of:

    1 Cup of yogurt (any flavor)

    1 Apple (quartered) put the whole thing in core and all. The thing chops it all.

    1 cup of frozen fruit (Dole has a mixed fruit bag)

    3 Tablespoons of Ground Flax Seed

    Add juice to desired consistancy. (Orange, Apple, Whatever)

    No added sugar and it tastes great.

    If you want, you can add carrots, celery. Make your own V8™ juice cocktail.

    If you're hankering for a shake...
    The Elvis
    2 cups vanilla ice cream
    1 cup 2% milk
    1 banana, preferably chopped and frozen
    3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter, at least

    The King LIVES!!!
