    Not everyone does well with carbs, and for those folks, maybe a smoothie is a bad idea, but some of us handle them just fine and don't see a banana as some sort of terrifying fat-producing monster.
    +1.

    I have them about twice a week for breakfast, no weight loss issues. I also have a banana a day. Helps keep my thyroid happy. Shrug.

    I have been having smoothies lately with a little bit of coconut milk, water, spinach, kale, frozen banana, frozen cooked sweet potato, and a raw egg. Or coconut milk, water, greens, frozen avocado, and frozen berries.

    Nice to change up breakfast in the summer... I'm getting sick of them already, though.

    My hot morning smoothie is 1 banana, 4 eggs, 6 or 7 frozen strawberries and a small handful of frozen Booblerries. I add some Vanilla extract and coconut milk to fill the blender half way and add water to adjust thickness. if you feel like it, use cold coffee as liquid. very nummies.

    I tried it with bacon but it does not blend well, does that mean it is not primal?

    I usually have a smoothie a few times a week. Water, coconut milk, 1/2 a frozen banana, some frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries), handful of greens, Tbsp of coconut oil, and a scoop of whey.

    I guess I could eliminate the whey, but I usually have the smoothie after my workout. I have always cut the banana in half as I find it's too sweet with the whole one. I buy 3-4 of them, cut them in half, and throw them in a bag and put them in the freezer, so I have them on hand when needed.

    I use green smoothies to get greens into me. I don't put more than three ounces of berries in, some almond milk (1/2 cup) and some sweetener if the berries are too tart.

    I prefer to eat this later in the day. Well, I prefer to eat everything later in the day, but this can be my "midnight" snack as it were.

    Yeah smoothies just aren't right without the sweetness and I'm not a fan of artificial sweeteners so I have ditched them like you. You could try a fatty smoothie with coconut milk and or cream in though, that might be tasty!

    I have a smoothie a few times a week- frozen berries, banana, greek yogurt and some nut butter. It's what, 2 serings of fruit and some good fat and protein. Keeps me full half a day.

    I will say, I stopped at a smoothie place assuming I could make one like mine.... yeah, those are sugar and soy bombs.... fat free frozen yogurt and soy, soy, soy.....

    But for me, 4 primal foods whirred in a blender= a primal meal.

    I still do savory smoothies. My favorite right now includes:

    -Tomato (only about 10-15% of the entire smoothie)
    -Onion
    -Garlic
    -Cuke
    -Celery
    -Jalapeno
    -greens of some sort (usually spinach or kale, but whatever is about to bolt in my garden)
    -water (till I'm happy with the consistency)

    I find that chilling this and drinking it in the heat of the summer to be very refreshing. I no longer do the fruit smoothies for the reasons you hint at. SUGAR BOMB OF DOOM!

    FOr my birthday last year, my wife made a smoothie "ice cream" for me that was coconut, blueberries, and wild strawberries. Blend the coconut, add in frozen berries. BAM, yummy primal dessert.
