    I make sure that the fruit that I use is frozen so I don't use any ice. I have a ninja blender and it's badass like Namelesswonder said . Most of the time, I have to add more liquid to it because it tends to get thick like ice cream.

    Cup of blueberries, cup of coconut milk (canned, not boxed), cup of water, 1 avocado, maybe a tablespoon of almond butter, dash of cinnamon. Blend it up. Drink it through a bendy straw. Feel full for a looooooooong time.

    Steamed spinach, half an avocado, a banana, frozen wild blueberries, unsweetened cocoa, dollop of heavy cream, wine to fill the bullet glass. Comes out thick enough to need a spoon. I don't like wine but try to have a few ounces a day. Disappears in the smoothie.
    Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

    I started making smoothies as a way to make paleo friendly protein shakes for lifting. Egg white protein won't dissolve in water. I just throw in whatever fruit is in my fridge and some carrots and kale. Then add the protein after juicing all the fruits and vegetables. I just learned that the juicing process takes out most of the fiber so I think I will get a vitamix for the future.

    I usually use protein powder, berries (all kinds) fresh spinach and Greek yogurt (full fat, plain) if I have it. If I use too much ice its way too think. It's not very sweet so sometimes I add a pinch of honey.

    I think I will try it with the almond butter and coconut milk - although coconut milk goes in one way and out the other really fast!!!!! YIKES

    That sounds pretty good, I never thought to use ginger in a smoothie before.
