    Wow, those all sound soooooo good!! I love making smoothies as dessert sometimes, especially when I feel like I've overeaten that day or eaten too much un-nutritious junk but I still want a little nighttime treat. God bless fruits for being both sweet and healthy! :)

    How excellent is this? VERY!

    And maybe throw in some mild greens like spinach or spring mix for an extra vitamin boost? You can't taste 'em but you sure can feel them.
