I recently came up with this: ice, apple juice, passion fruit concentrate, and sugar.
Those of you that use yogurt: Is this just standard store bought yogurt? Does it thicken the smoothie?
Yes, I use the standard yoghurt and it does thicken the smoothie, hence the amount of yoghurt you put in depends on the amount and type of fruit you throw in the blender - Bananas don't have a whole lot of juice, but citrus a lot. For me, the smoothie is perfect when it's still going through a straw without much problems.
Remember, you can always add yoghurt - it's often a little harder to add more fruit.
I haven't tried whey powder yet, but I can't imagine it alters the taste much: as long as you don't put the stuff with chocolate or coffee flavour in it. Vanilla seems fine to me.
Why not put fresh fruit in the smoothie? Cheaper and healthier than Cartonjuice and concentrate.
