About this recipe: Most fruits like berries, mangoes and papayas go very well together in smoothies when used with juices. Use fruits that are fresh, in season and experiment with your favourites!
We loved this!! I used half a can of pineapple chunks and its juice instead of peaches and just plain orange juice instead of the mango-orange juice(didn't have any of either ingrediant on hand). Will make many mornings to come. And this is very "basic," you can add/subtract fruits you prefer or have around the house. - 04 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We enjoyed trying your basic smoothie recipe in different ways. The first time we made it with tropical fruits, papaya, mango, canned and orange juice. Other times we just used what we had around the house...which is usually ripe bananas and strawberries, our family likes to add a couple of teaspoons of vanilla and we sprinkle it with a bit of cinnamon powder just to give it an extra kick. Another possibility is making it with milk instead of water, this is great when you do not have time to have a sit-down meal. Good basic recipe. Thank you Janelle! - 09 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Only O.K. It just tasted like a lot of fruit blended together. Not very smooth, not very sweet. Will look for another smoothie recipe next time. - 21 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
