Put in blender. Blend. Drink.
Seriously. That's it. Refrigerate or freeze what you don't drink on the spot.
The ingredients above are just what I typically use. The banana will give it a creaminess, as will the spinach. The mint and frozen raspberry combo gives it a sweet, refreshing flavor. Beyond that, add whatever you like. If you're down with the dairy, yogurt will give it a nice flavor, as will coconut milk (as opposed to the coconut water that I use).
In the summertime, I'll buy a honeydew or cantaloupe melon, cube it and freeze it, then throw a handful of cubes into my smoothie. When it's plum season, I'll raid my neighbors tree, cut the stones out and freeze them for the same purpose.
Hint: if you're freezing plums, freeze them on a cookie tray, then store them in a plastic bag or tupperware. They're easier to separate later.
