It used to seem that unless you had access to Trader Joe's, the frozen fruit selection at the market was primarily strawberries, blueberries, and the occasional raspberry. While those are all great, it restricts smoothie recipes a bit. Now, even at the regular grocery store, you can find everything from cherries, peaches, pineapple, even mango in the frozen fruit section. Frozen fruit makes the best smoothies, because blending it results in a thick and frothy drink without the addition of ice cubes. Of course, you can freeze fresh fruit yourself, which I often do whenever things are getting a little soft in the fruit bowl.
This smoothie was a combination of fresh banana, frozen peach, frozen pineapple, and lowfat milk. So good I photographed it two days in a row.
