Any recipes to share? I've only been doing smoothies for about 2 weeks now but I've found I really like it. It's a great way to eat your veggies and fruits and easy, too. No chewing required!
Here's a very simple one I started with:
2 cups raw spinach leaves (whole)
4-6 strawberries (tops off)
Half a banana
A little bit of water
Blend the fruits & the water first and then add the spinach leaves a small handful at a time, blending in between until smooth. Then drink. :)
You can make a smoothie as simple or complex as you want. My current blender is pretty tiny though so I keep the ingredients pretty basic with a 3 fruit/veg combo.

1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
2 Kale leaves
about 1/4 to 1/2 cup soymilk
I also add ground almonds, pumpkin kernels and flaxseed. It's yummo! Change the fruit with the seasons.
