I don't like yogurt or banannas... and all the smoothie recipes I can find have one or the other or both in them!  Does anyone out there have any good recipes with neither?

I'm the smoothie queen, but I always use bananas. You can live without the yogurt (i know what you mean, it makes a chalky smoothie). Ummm...try just making a frozen fruit slush type thing with juice, frozen fruit and ice (add some sweetener if it's too sour). Or if you really miss the creaminess that the yougurt or bananas gave, try lite cool whip (tastes funny and would kind of cancel out a smoothie's good for you factor though). Oh...or use a low fat/sugar frozen yogurt that you like. That would be even better.

Please go see my shop!

this may sound odd...
  but just try replacing the banana or yogurt with avocado.  It'll add a creamy note and the flavor from it isn't too strong.

You can use silken tofu, frozen seedless green grapes.  PLus what ever other frit you like. I LOVE partially frozen watermellon chuncks.

If you go to the Jamba Juice web site, they have all the ingedients found in all their smoothies. Alot of them don't involve either yoghurt or bananas. Fruit sorbets can add a bit of creamyness also.

I second the silken tofu.  You just need a bit to give it the texture that you miss out on without bananas or yogurt.  Too much and it tastes a little funny.  You could even try fromage blanc or ricotta cheese.  I pretty much live on smoothies and I don't believe in recipies for them.  I just throw in a few ice cubes, some frozen fruit (peaches, blueberries, raspberries, you get the idea), my base (the tofu/yougurt/banana/sorbet part) and my secret ingredient-a few spoonfuls of raspberry lemonade concentrate.  Awesome.

If you ever teach a yodeling class, probably the hardest thing is to keep the students from just trying to yodel right off. You see, we build to that.
