"This is one of my favorite recipes out of the cookbook that came with my Magic Bullet blender. Of course you can make this in a regular blender as well."

"Delicious combination. I couldn't decide between orange and pineapple juice, so used a mix of the two. Wonderful treat on this hot summer day!"
"I made this with frozen strawberries and blackberries along with the banana and oj. DD complained that it was too tart so we added a stevia packet and mixed it in. That seemed to remedy the problem."
"Delicious. I made this to go along with a Mexican casserole and we loved it. I didn't have frozen mixed berries, so I just used frozen strawberries. Still great , thank you for sharing with us."
"Lori Mama this is one of the best smoothie's that I have tried. Loved the flavor combinations in this treat. I used an orange/pineapple juice, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries for my smoothie. It was smooth, silky, thick and velvety. The raw natural flavor of the ingredients really shone threw. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely recipe."
"These were so good. I used a mix of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Next time tho I would use less berry with seed in them as we found there were too many seeds."
"I used a blender. I chose orange juice and frozen mixed berries. It was so yummy. Thanks Lori :) Made for Photo tag game"
"I must concur with other reviewers and agree that this is a super simple delicious recipe! It can be modified to suits tastes and diets, and it's sooooo good. I used strawberries and blackberries with my banana, and some orange/pineapple/mango juice...the taste was excellent and it went together in a flash! Thanks for sharing, Lori Mama!"
"I make the same thing but without orange or pineapple juice (although I've tried it with both individually). I prefer using a dash of milk and a few heaping tablespoons of fat free/taste free boring yogurt. The taste of the berries and banana will fool ANYONE. Nobody will even guess they are consuming healthy yogurt. I also step it up health wise and add a heaping tablespoon of ground up flax seed. I don't even notice it's in there. This will leave you full all morning. Thanks for posting!"
"What a great tasting smoothie. I used 1 cup strawberries and 1 cups blueberries. DD loved it as well as I did - thanks"
"Wonderfully thick and rich. I did use my regular blender as I don't have a magic bullet. I used a combination of frozen red raspberries and blackberries. My banana wasn't frozen. My juice was Simply Orange with Pineapple. So YUMMY!!!~ Made for HolidayTag."
"We have this several times a week for breakfast. It's also good with some plain yogurt mixed in. So healthy and so tasty!"
"This is a great recipe! I used black cherries with the banna and it was awsome!"
"Super! I made last night for a sweet treat using pineapple juice and a few pineapple chunks too. I reduced to half and it was plenty for me!"
"Wonderful - I used frozen mango, strawberries, raspberries, fresh very ripe banana and vanilla yogurt! How easy can you get and delish - this will become a regular in our home. Thanks so much"
"This was an excellent example of how something can be so much more than the sum of its parts! I love fruit, and I love smoothies, but really this was much more delicious than just the fruits alone. Even DS enjoyed it, despite disliking most of the ingredents! I made this using a somewhat sweetened mix of blackberries, strawberries, red raspberries, and blueberries, a very ripe banana, and the juice of one cara-cara navel orange. It was so thick that my blender had some trouble with it, as initially I just juiced 1/2 of the orange. It went much better after adding the juice of the other half, though. I gave some to my DS, but it was too thick for him to drink with his straw until I mixed in a little lemonade. I have to say, that good as this is alone, the addition of the lemonade made it even better! I think I'll use a mix of orange juice and lemonade in future, as it really added a lot of flavor. Thanks so much for posting, Lori! Made for Holiday Tag Game."
"This is a great smoothie. I usually add yogurt to mine, so this was a bit different, but I liked it without the creaminess of the yogurt. I used blueberries, strawberries, banana and OJ. Made for holiday tag."
"YUMMY! I LOVE all fruit smoothies! I made mine in a blender with OJ. I added a few Splenda packets to cut the tartness. Made for the Beverage tag game."
"Classic smoothie, just the right thickness, colorful and refreshing. Made for Every Day is a Holiday Tag Feb. 2008."
"This is one of the best smoothies ever! I love my Magic Bullet because it makes the fruit so smooth (I guess thus the name smoothie :-) )--it is almost like drinking a slurpee except it is better and healthy too! I used frozen strawberries and my banana was frozen too. I also added about 1 tablespoon of honey for extra sweetness. Oh, and I used orange juice as the thinning ingredient. So, so yummy!! Thanks for a keeper."
