I bought a Vitamix last summer, and a book of smoothie recipes. It was all fun and games until I was diagnosed with a banana allergy. Help me make my smoothies taste good again!

The long version: the allergist suspects it is not a 'pure' banana allergy but rather an oral allergy syndrome related to birch pollen, for which I tested very high on the allergy test. He thinks I may be able to cook the banana and use it, but I have been scared to try this as the stomachaches I got from banana are quite severe. Prior to the allergy test, my go-to was a green smoothie with strawberries and bananas. I have tried using apples instead, or using just mixed berries with rice milk, but they always need sweeteners and don't have the right consistency.
So...hit me with your best banana-free ideas!
