Wintertime Smoothies?

In the summer my family loves these smoothies:

12 large ripe strawberries
2 bananas
1 cup strawberry yogurt
(optional) 1/4 cup protein powder
10 ice cubes
1 cup orange juice

blend on 'smoothie' setting for 2 minutes.

In winter the ice cubes give everybody the chills, so I've substituted the 10 ice cubes with 1 1/2 cup of applesauce.

I'd love to hear some other suggestions for ways to make this drink in the winter (?) Thanks!

  1. Wow. How many grams of sugar would be in that? I would be in a sugar coma if I drank that. Does anyone do non sugar smoothies?

    I made one this morning with almond milk, whey protein and flax. But, I am looking for green smoothies without the "candy rush". I am looking for morning avocado smoothies if anyone makes those, I would love to hear about it.
