  • Peach
  • Blackberries
  • Papaya
  • Passionfruit

These are the smoothie lists we tend to go by. Now, this is where it gets interesting. The choice of combination.

You can either keep it classic and use the first list as a combination, or use bits from the first list, and take some from the second list.

For example, use mango, passionfruit, and bananas for your smoothie. Or, to keep it classic, use banana, blueberry and pineapple.
This will very much depend on your tastes and preferences. Think hard about what you would like, go buy these ingredients, and put them in that blender.
