Smoothie recipes

Who says smoothies have to be boring.  We've all at some point and time had a smoothie that consisted of juice (orange, grape) or milk as the fluid ingredient and either fruit (berries, banana, pineapple,etc) or some veggies.  Well I want to share a few healthy but NOT boring smoothies I found in REPS magazine to add pizzaz to your next smoothie.
