Cool and Creamy Shakes and Smoothies

I recently bought a new blender and am really enjoying it.  I make lots of cool and creamy shakes and smoothies.  I use Carnation Instant Breakfast Drinks, just add milk and you have the perfect, quick on the go meal.   You can add fruits, yogurt, honey, peanut butter and even coffee and you have a great smoothie or shake.   Here are some of my basic favorites.
