I hate seeds in my smoothies too, especially when I'm drinking it in class...I always feel - probably correctly - that there's seeds in my teeth.
You can buy fruit that's seedless. My pre-class smoothies usually consist of bananas, mangoes, pineapples, peaches, apples, oranges, etc.
I hate lumpy smoothies too, so I chop/dice the fruit into smaller pieces before tossing it in the blender. Then I blend with some liquid (almond milk, water, orange juice, etc) until smooth, then I add the leafy greens in and blend again. When i think it's done blending, I run it for another 30-60 seconds and then it comes out really smooth.

Red raspberries and black berries are the worst for seeds! I make my smoothie with all the ingredients then strain it through a wire mesh strainer. The smoothie strains through and the seeds remain behind. Kind of a pain...but it works.

I've been making a smoothie with 1/2 banana, 1/3c blueberries, 1 cup kale, 1/2 scoop protein powder, water and ice. Delish! (you can make it without the protein powder)
The below suggestion sounds like a good one of you keep getting bits of seeds. I get little seed bits every once in awhile with certain foods (most berries, and sometimes kale) so I try to blend it for awhile to help prevent that.
I bought a blender to get in to the habit of making smoothies for a snack instead of junk of some kind. However, i have found that i really dislike the texture of all the seeds. (ex strawberries) Any tips on "Smoother" smoothies?
