smoothie recipe

This is our working recipe at the moment.

1 cup Stonyfield farm whole milk yogurt (has 3g fiber)
half package of soft tofu (protein, iron, and completely undetectable)
1 or 2 tbsp wheat germ (fiber & iron, but can be bitter in large amounts)
1 or 2 bananas (2 makes it sweeter)
mess of berries from the freezer (Costco!)
in emergencies: half and half or ice cream ad libitum

If I have a slice of lemon or lime around, i'll squeeze it in to brighten up the berries.

This is a work in progress. Ideas and suggestions will be keenly scrutinized.

Also: does anyone have a recipe for a smoothie that involves peanut butter? We are huge fans of peanut butter and unsure how to make edible smoothies out of it.

Update -- faster:

Cup of plain yogurt (I've started making it myself -- it's really easy!)
A good, trusted egg (or two)
A heaping cereal bowl full of frozen berries, microwaved for 60-90 seconds

For a less thick smoothie:
Mango
Yogurt
Splash of OJ

Whatever powders or potions you need to make yourself feel ethical. The smooth tofu would probably work fine in here as well. Golden Pacific Foods(by the Happy Jewel)and Thai Grocery both have local produced fresh tofu.

I don't know about peanut butter smoothies but I do make a mean peanut curry sauce with PB, coconut milk and other goodies....
