Alton Brown's Buff Smoothie
Buff Smoothie
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown, 2009

Prep Time:10 min
NOTE: You start making this smoothie the night before - so this is something to think ahead about.

Level: Easy
Serves: 24 ounces

4 ounces plain, low-fat soy milk
4 ounces acai, grape, or pomegranate juice
4 ounces frozen banana
4 ounces frozen strawberries
4 ounces frozen blueberries
4 ounces frozen peaches
Combine the soy milk, juice, banana, strawberries, blueberries, and the peaches in the carafe of a blender. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 8 hours.

In the morning, or when the fruit is partially thawed, put the carafe on the base of the blender, start at the lowest speed and slowly accelerate to medium, until you achieve a vortex. Blend on medium for 1 minute. Increase the speed to high and blend for an additional minute. Serve immediately.

The great thing about frozen fruits is they are picked ripe - and often have a better flavor than the fruits that are picked green and ripen in the store (they are not really ripening in the store, they are putrefying). Frozen fruits are a great tool to use. 
If you want to make this without the overnight you can if you have a great blender like a VItamix - which has a smoothie setting on it - you can just place the ingredients in the blender and go.
