    I did a search and couldn't find a related thread. I've recently become a smoothie addict. I just made one using strawberries, a mango, and pomegranate juice. Anyone else make their own smoothies?

    Yep. But I go greener.

    Apple juice, bananas, spinach, alfalfa sprouts, avocados and wheatgrass.

    you take a whole bunch of fruit, put it in a blender, blend it, and drink.
    BTW, for all of you who live in the UK, TRY AN INNOCENT SMOOTHIE, THEY'RE DELICIOUS!!!!!

    I saw this thread and without even thinking immediately went to it. I thought I was the only one, but I also love smoothies. It isn't too fun since I live in a small little town (and use to live in the suburbs). I really miss all those special smoothie-only places. Now I'm stuck with Dunkin' Donuts smoothie-esque things.

    I'm all for strawberries and bananas, and pomegranate juice is so delicious!

    Strawberries (frozen works better), frozen mango (optional), banana, ice, orange juice. Try it, it is so delicious!

    Do you all use blenders or does anyone have a smoothie maker?

    Mortar and pestle.

    Nah, I just go and buy mine. My favourite is the "breakfast" one on offer. It's usually banana, muesli cereal (that's the key ingredient!), honey, frozen yoghurt, and milk/soy milk.

    I buy them quite often. Nothing is better than a Brekkie-a-gogo at Boost, or the "Fast Break" at Nectar, located at my Uni. They also buy "Fair Trade" coffee beans and such.

    Don't get the wrong idea, though. It's not just fruit juice. You add ice cream/yoghurt, ice, and milk to it as well. And it's also not a milkshake, as Smoothies aren't as thick or milky. It's somewhere in between a milkshake and a fruit juice, and it tastes better than both!

    I got very addicted to smoothies in my first year of uni. They're just such good meals for someone in a hurry. It didn't help that we had a Boost Juice bar just outside the main uni gates. :(

    OK, maybe it's the pain meds i'm on but i think that might have been one of the funniest replies i've read in a long time.

    Where did you go?

    Again, we have a place called Nectar that's quite good on (UoW) campus, but there are actually 3 different places that sell smoothies. It's pretty amazing.

    Boost is a bit expensive, and you need to buy 10 to get 1 free, while at Nectar, you only need to buy 9, and the 10th smoothie is free. And yes, I'm an addict.

    Adelaide Uni. :eek:



    Not if you're a VIB (Very Important Boostie). Yes, they actually gave me a card because I'd buy so many (three a day at the least) and I'd get a discount, albeit only about 5-10%. I haven't tried Nectar, I've never even seen one. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.

    Boost is every where and at school about 5 mates work at boost. They can get me a huge discount and if they are working i could probally get one for free, it not store policy but i think you get the idea of what they do ;)

    Saying that i haven't taken them on that offer, i just don't want to get addicted to them because there so expensive. Its an addiction i tell you, we have 4 boosts at the queen street mall and 1/20 people from school go there in the morning to get there daily dosage. Next thing they are going to do is drink it it in the toilets during lunch :eek:
