These are great. I get stuck using the same ingredients in smoothies and its lack luster. I'll give these a try!

I like the recipes but I do have to point out that smoothies are not the same as juices. :)

Eh?

Blended apples are not the same as juiced apples, nutritionally. I just think it's important to clarify the difference between blending a whole food versus extracting the juice from a whole food. I still think the recipes look great. :)

These look good, I've also been stuck using the same ingredients. The extent of my fruit for smoothies is banana and some different berries.

I've got a lot of squash kicking around - this might be a good way to use it up.
