I've been trying to make something that is healthy, affordable and delicious. I think I would enjoy something strawberry but I don't like bananas at all. This makes it difficult I think since the bananas make it thick. Maybe I could put yogurt in it to make it thicker and more like a shake...

ground nuts or seeds of your choice
honey/sweetener/dates as required
I really want to get into smoothies etc because I don't get through enough in the way of vegetables and nutrients in the course of my day. Problem is I can't stand fruity tasting drinks, and vegetable smoothie recipes are all about "It just tastes like strawberries/oranges!". Anyone have tricks...
