    We actually got a cheap $50 1000 watt generic one from shiploads.. It really is a great thing... To test it we just put a full banana in, skin and all, and a little liquid (water) and within 10 seconds it was smoothie consistency.. The only problem now is I need to educate myself on what fruit skins are bad to eat... 😀

    Try adding some Gojis , chia seeds, almonds , LSA or any nuts really! I also freeze a lot of my fresh fruit and make spinach and kale ice cubes so it makes your smoothies icy cold!

    I added chia seeds into my mango and coconut milk breakfast smoothie this morning and I was amazed at how filling it was! Wasn't even remotely hungry again until at least 5 hours later.

    Apple seeds contain arsenic so definitely remove those. ditto for the cherry stones as I reckon any kind of pip/stone would taste really bitter.

    the frozen berries are also fantastic as they're much cheaper than fresh and of course they don't perish.

    I like the frozen strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. all Coles brand.

    Just remember most frozen fruit at supermarkets is from Chile or China , it can be cheaper sometimes to buy Australian fruit fresh and freeze it, I got a box of mangoes (12) for $10 last week!

    Banana, kiwi, mango, orange and watermelon skins are all apparently good for you but they also contain most of the pesticide residue so Id go organic if you intend to eat the skins

    Thank you ladies, the smoothies are usually for my kids.

    The booklet tells you what pips not to add...
