I little of everything. Most of mine have banana, strawberry, chia seed, vegan DHA oil, hemp milk, and greens (either kale, spinach, or chard usually). Then every once in a while I add something else that I have sitting around. Adding grapes always makes them awesome! Other times I add mango, or apple, or peaches, or kiwi. Really whatever fruit I have around. I'm not picky. Every smoothie is an adventure!

For what it is worth, I soak my chia and it never ends up slimy in the smoothie. We have a Blendtec.

Re: Green smoothies

We recently got a Vitamix and love it. It makes the best smoothies!

We normally use....a few different fruits (frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, fresh banana, raspberries, pear, apple) and some kale or spinach, sometimes a small handful of carrots, with some regular milk or coconut milk. If none of the fruit is frozen then I sometimes add a handful of ice to thicken it.
