I found a very similar recipe in "The Ultimate Smoothie Book". The recipe was 3/4 c orange or pineapple juice, 1-in chunk gingerroot. 1 mango, 1 banana, and 6 icecubes. We juiced 2 oranges and the gingerroot and froze those into icecubes the night before. It tasted like something from jamba juice or orange julius. Healthy and refreshing! Our version only has 165 calories and 41 g carbs. I might try this with frozen grapes next time since I keep those handy already frozen instead of waiting for orange juice to freeze.
