I make smoothies all the time and don't use either of those things.

The smoothies I make are fairly creamy..

This is what I normally toss in..

So Nice Peach Yogurt

So Nice Vanilla Soy Milk

Fresh Pineapple

Fresh Cantaloupe

3 oranges

Yummy!!

bananas and yogurt are what i use. maybe add flax seeds... i'm not sure how much it would help but i think it would to some extent.

Depending on what flavor I'm making, I'll use silken tofu to add texture. It has to counteracted by some sweetness, but it's a great addition to my smoothie arsenal.

Yeah, I am in agreement, I use all frozen fruits and soymilk as the liquid or juice, you can also throw in a few pieces of ice.

blend up icecubes.

honestly, lol it works really good. i watched them at my fav coffee chain and stole the idea.

i thought it would make them watery but they just go nice and thick.

my friend just told me yesterday that she's been making them with frozen bananas and fresh fruit because she ran out of nondairy ice cream and they turned out perfectly
