What's a good substitute for banana in a smoothie? Bonus difficulty, also not really including dairy products or peanut butter.

I would like to eat/drink smoothies.
Unfortunately, I don't like bananas in smoothies (although I like eating bananas plain). I'm also mildly lactose intolerant and don't have milk, ice cream or cream. I've seen recipes that include peanut butter, but I think I would prefer to start out less adventurous.
So, what other fruit/ingredient could I put in a smoothies to replace the banana and make them thicker? Whole recipes would be welcome.
Also, are there any smoothies for sale in the UK that are banana-free?
