What are your favourite smoothie ideas? And what's your fav way to sweeten up a smoothie to make it more dessert/milkshake like?

I made one this morning with goji berry juice, raw cacao, bananas, agave nectar, and was good.

Yea, raw agave is fantastic for thickening/sweetening smoothies!

I found some links for you. Not all of the recipes are raw but there are lots of yummy ones.

There's probably more around on the board somewhere. You can do search (at the top).

I like to make 100% fruit smoothies and use different kinds of fruits to sweeten them. So far, my favorite would have to be cherry/banana smoothies. Cherries are great for sweetening things up. I use frozen ones to make it thick and smoothie like.

To make it rich and sweet, besides agave, use dates, coconut cream, baby coconut, cashew cream, Brazil nut cream, almond cream and avocado. Cinnamon is nice too depending on what other flavors are used.

Banana and avacado are both great ways to thicken the shake.

It just takes a bit of avacado to make it thick.

I put hemp powder in almost every smoothie I make.

I use Manitoba harvest which dissolves well. I even stir it into my grape fruit juice in the morning.

In Taiwan the sole and single application of the avacado is for the avacado milk smoothie.

I found leaving out the milk and adding agave, banana and strawberry (in any combination) is my favorite.

we make smoothies with frozen fruit and water and plain soymilk powder. depending on how much fruit you have and water you add makes it thicker or thinner, so just adjust it according to what you want. just freeze chopped up fruit or fruit, like grapes that doesent have to be chopped. its all to taste! no added sweetener needed!!
