Rated 5 out of 5 by Christie from Best ever I bought a Vitamix from QVC and just love it. I tried this smoothie and it is great. I don't like a lot in my drink so this is great. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lin why 4 char minimum from Easy smoothie with no left-overs. I never use a slice of anything. The recipe I like is: 1 peach (2 if small) 1-2 plums (depending on size) Triple berries, frozen (a cup or so if you insist on measuring) Strawberries, frozen (optional - less than a cup, if you insist ...) (Banana, I don't like 'em in a smoothie, but if you'd like, fine) 1 6oz container of yogurt (because I can't find 8oz any more) Orange juice (enough so that it's up to the top of the fruit) Mix, slow to high, until it's done. Makes enough to serve 2-3, or one of me. :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by confused cook from HELP! I purchased the Ascent 2500 with automatic smoothie setting. What am I doing wrong??? I followed the directions to a T, and it continues to make gritty, not smooth smoothie. I am really disappointed. What's going on?

What flavor of soy milk can be used for this drink? I'm guessing that it doesn't matter, because it's not listed in the ingredients. Also can this be made in the Vitamix S30?
This recipe calls for plain soy milk, you can use any flavor you choose. Yes this recipe can be made in your S30.

What can I use in place of soy milk and pineapple?
You can use coconut/cashew/or almond milk, instead of pineapple you can use just about any fruit or peanut butter.I make my own coconut milk in my vita mix. You can get a gallon from one coconut. It's good in smoothies on cerial, or in your curries.do not use apple cores anytime,the pips contain arsenic.

This smoothie would be warm???
You can use ice in the recipe if desired, you would just want to use 3/4 cup soy milk to 1/4 cup ice. Another option is to use 1/2 frozen banana instead of ice, and to use your tamper while blending.
