Fruit Punch Smoothie (Dairy-free)

I've recently started making smoothies every morning, and I was thrilled to discover the book Superfood Smoothies, which not only uses whole foods in the recipes, but also has many dairy-free options. In fact, I'm not sure any of the recipes use animal products, but I could be wrong. This fruit punch smoothie recipe is my adaptation of the one in the book. The author uses coconut water, which my older son isn't too fond of.

Fruit Punch Smoothie
1 - 10oz bag of frozen strawberries (or about 2 cups if you buy the giant bags)
2 - bananas
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 cup unsweetened apple juice

Blend and enjoy. Makes about 3 12-oz servings.

If you want to add a nutritional punch to, can add any or all of the following without changing the taste of your smoothie.
3 tablespoons hemp seeds (or flax seeds, or combination)
1 tablespoon acai powder (or macqui berry powder)
1 teaspoon wheatgrass powder (or green superfood powder mix)
1/2 teaspoon camu powder
