While I'm writing, I'll share a recipe for a smoothie that I've been

Raspberry Carob Mint Smoothie
1 banana, use frozen for a very thick texture, like soft serve ice cream,
use a fresh banana for more of a smoothie or milkshake texture.
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 heaping tablespoon carob powder
3-4 mint leaves, option
1 cup soymilk, more or less, depending upon how thick you want your

Blend everything until smooth.
Warning: I have killed several blenders making these really thick smoothies.
You can make this with a normal blender, but it will take a lot of starting
and stopping and scraping down. I recently got a vita-mix, which handles the
frozen fruit much better.
