Well I got a really good Kenwood food processor for Christmas which has a liquidizer for smoothie making on it.

One question I have is, when I try to make some things it just cuts the vegetables up into tiny little chunks, not bad... Works better with fruit but still.. Also some times it has a problem in "pulling" some stuff down into it.

Should I be adding stuff one bit at a time.. Should I use more water to make it smoother?

When I make my green smoothie I always start off with half of the total water I plan on using, and whatever green I am using(spinach,kale). Once that is blended, I add my fruit and the rest of the water and blend until ready to drink !

Ah I'm going to be having fruit and oat smoothie for breakfast and a veg one (or soup, not too far from the same thing) for lunch or dinner.

It's to the point where I have to bulk buy my produce :D

As far as I know, food processors are more for chopping than blending. Blenders have a smaller blade and a higher rpm, which helps cut the food into smaller pieces. I would also suggest cutting the liquid down to a minimum first, then adding the liquids you want at the end. Also, simply processing for longer could get you where you need to go....
