Tips

Use more of the fruit that you like best. You can thin the recipe by adding water. Once you freeze the smoothie, it will be thick. I like to set mine on the counter or fridge for a few minutes to thaw to ice cream texture and eat with a spoon. This recipe has 18 grams of protein, you can add more powder to increase protein.


Directions

Start by blending the fruit and yogurt a litlte, then add your liquid and blend away. If your blender has a pulsing function (most do) use it. It allows any larger piece of fruit to sink back down to the bottom and get chopped up. That way you will end up with a nice smooth smoothie. I have blend with 600 watt motor that is excellent- Oster brand $50 Walmart

Should your blender get to the point where it is having a hard time moving everything around, your smoothie is too thick. Add some more liquid and it will work just fine.

For smoothie recipes that call for ice in it, start with the ice and chop it up in your blender before you add the remaining ingredients. This will make sure everything combines well and that you donít end up with big ice chunks.

By the way, you donít have to stick to just frozen fruit in your smoothie. Feel free to mix both fresh and frozen fruits. For these frozen smoothies you can either buy fruit already frozen at the grocery store, or take your favorite fresh fruit and toss it in the freezer. It is very easy to freezer berries for example. Just put them in a freezer bag and freeze them whole.

Slices of frozen banana make a great addition to just about any fruit smoothie. Just peel your banana and slice it. Put them into a freezer bag and freeze until you need them for a smoothie. Adding them gives your smoothie a nice creamy texture and adds some sweetness as well.
