Smoothie recipes that are healthy & somewhat kid friendly?

My DH & I are Pooh size but wanting to get healthy. We have been eating better than in the past & exercising more. DH is far more dedicated than me. My oldest DD has been difficult so we are trying to clean up all of our diets. I bought a Ninja, today along w/ the fixings to make smoothies. Do any of you have any recipes? Maybe some to camouflage vegetables? Both DD are not big on veggies so I am trying to disguise them. We have cut meat out of our diet. We do eat fish & some dairy and eggs. We changed from milk to soy. I introduced flax seed tonight by cooking it on the fish. They didn't notice. So, back to the smoothies, any suggestions?

I put 2 cups of spinach or kale in all my smoothies and you can't taste it AT ALL. Swear! It turns my chocolate/peanut butter/banana smoothie an odd green color but you can't taste it. For that one, I use a scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Jay Robb because it's the only one that uses Stevia...we don't use any artificial sweetener in our house), a tablespoon of organic peanut butter, 4 oz of organic almond milk or coconut milk (not the kind out of a can but I use So Delicious - Jillian Michael from the Biggest Loser's brand), and 1/2 banana. Then I toss in 1/3 cup of frozen Earthbound organic spinach (I buy it from Costco) but you can use 2 cups of fresh.....1/3 of frozen is equivalent to 2 cups. Throw in a few ice cubes to taste and blend. I also do smoothies with blueberries, mangos, raspberries, strawberries, etc. Whatever I feel like and then throw in 2 cups of spinach or kale. The taste is hidden by the other ingredients so I'm getting in some veggies. All 3 of my kiddos love them (ages 15, 11, and 3).

I drink this yummy smoothie daily:

1 scoop vanilla soy protein powder
1 banana
1/2 c blueberries
Handful of spinach
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Ice (8 to 10 cubes)

Very filling and tastes great!

All mine would be 2 servings

My favorite is

cup of milk
cup of plain non fat yogurt
banana
peanut butter
chocolate milk powder

then I'll do

frozen strawberries, blueberries, blackberries

or go tropical

canned pineapple, banana and a whole orange

I have yet to try and get veggies into mine just fruit.

I just usually do lowfat vanilla or plain yogurt with tsp of vanilla and splenda if needed, ice and fruit. i could never really get into juicing vegetables... maybe carrot juice?
for veggies try quiona stuffed portabellas or peppers topped with just a tiny bit of goat cheese or else 'oven fried' eggplant. very satisfying.

I love smoothies!

I like using non fat vanilla yogurt as a "base". And for fruit I like fresh, in season fruit, I like at least two fruits in my smoothie.
" strawberries & bananas
" strawberries & blueberries
" peaches & bananas
" raspberries & blueberries
And of course add some ice.
After I'm done making it I like to put whipped cream on the top
