New Blender: Need Tips

Just got this blender from Walmart for $35:

It came with a food processor attachment which I think will come in handy. Maybe some fresh salsa?

I just made my first smoothie with: 2 apples, 2 bananas. 1 orange, about 3 cups milk, 3 cups ice, and 2-3 tablespoons of honey.

It came out ‘ok’ and no matter what I know I just had a damn healthy meal. But it wasnt really super tasty. And I would like some advice as to what I can do with this thing.
