I like banana, strawberries, any frozen fruit I may have (pineapple, other berries, medleys), spinach, dandelion greens and unsweetened unflavored coconut milk.

I totally forgot about beet greens when I replied before. Beet greens with strawberries and a banana is my favorite smoothie. The only problem with beet greens is that they come with beets :) I like beets well enough but I'd buy more of the greens if they were sold separately.

simple for me is better, a green, a banana, and berries. I add a mixture of (spirulina, maca, bee pollen and a pro-biotic) H2O (filtered).
I rotate greens and berries. I double the amount of greens over fruit.

My smoothies usually include either kale or spinach (I try to alternate), and ALWAYS pineapple. Pineapple is extremely medicinal for me- the digestive enzymes make me so happy!
I use one part green and two parts fruit. My third fruit varies- lately its been blueberries, but I'll try whatever is in season. Right now it's mangos and papaya.

TEDYBEAR2838 - I get Zico coconut water and I have it delivered from Amazon. That's the cheapest pricing I have found. I believe it has like 60 calories per 11.2 oz container.

At my local health food store these 11.2 oz containers are $2.29 each. When I order from Amazon I get 12 for $17

Is coconut water expensive & does it have a lot of calories?

I mix up my greens all the time. Spinach is a nice easy stand by. I love kale and chard. I use collards but can't say I love them. I don't dislike them but there's something about them that keeps them second fiddle. I tried some yu choy this winter and really liked it but my organic market doesn't carry it regularly. It appears to be a seasonal treat.

Strawberry and banana is my go to fruit base. It's easy and I like it. I do that when I don't want to think about getting creative. Throwing some raspberries in is great too.

I usually start with at least 100 g greens and then a couple handfuls of whatever fruit I can grab. I usually add 1 banana to every smoothie. I buy a lot of them, wait for them to get ripe, and then peel, slice, and freeze them.

Mine changes daily too, but today's is pretty awesome, I have to say. It's pink grapefruit, orange, spinach, and fennel. I juiced the citrus and then blended the spinach and fennel in. VERY yummy and I'm not really a big fennel fan.

Karen- Alot of things that can be made as a smoothie can also be juiced. Yesterday I made a carrot, mango and cantaloupe juice that was killer.

I don't have a favorite. Mine changes daily. I love using melons though and anything with pineapple is a fave too. As far as greens, I'm a spinach lover, but like to vary the greens daily.

You are making me want to break my juice fast gals!

Mine is probably beautiful green chard with the stem and all and some dates and bananas along for the ride. I simply love chard! I think it might just be my favorite---shhhh....don't tell the kales! LOL
