Even smoothie lovers who keep their blenders primed and ready are always on the lookout for new recipes to add to their repertoire. Their criteria? Easy assembly (not too much measuring), creative ingredients and plenty of wiggle room for add-ins and substitutions. That's why we came up with the following system: a smoothie base that's low-cal, nutritionally balanced and ultra-versatile, plus five fun recipes to try it with. It's just the thing to get you going in the morning—or help you chill out on a sultry summer afternoon.

Bananas and silken tofu provide a one-two punch of fiber and protein, and give smoothies dairy-free richness. For thicker smoothies, add more ice cubes or freeze your fresh fruit before blending it.
