I am here to tell you that I was once overwhelmed about how to make a fruit smoothie and I am going to show you just how easy and fast they are to whip up.
Are you ready to see how easy this is?
So what’s in a fruit smoothie?
Fruit smoothies can contain numerous ingredients and of course one of those is definitely going to be fruit. If you’re wondering what the best ingredients for fruit smoothies are, you can check out our post on what are the best fruits for smoothies. What other ingredients can you expect to see in a fruit smoothie? Well, that depends on your personal tastes. Some people for example like to include yogurt in their smoothies. Personally, though I don’t like the texture that yogurt provides and I prefer to create frozen smoothies.
So what do you put into a frozen smoothie? Well, you start with the base of either fruit juice or water and generally start out with about a cup and a half of liquid. Then you toss in roughly 8 to 10 ice cubes and top it with the fruit of your choice.
You can use fresh or frozen fruit, depending on how thick you want your smoothie to be. If you prefer a thicker smoothie use frozen fruits along with your ice cubes. But if you prefer a juicier smoothie you want to either use fresh fruits or reduce the amount of ice you put in the blender.
Ingredients added? Now just blend it up!
If you’re using a quality blender capable of making smoothies with ease, then all you should have to do is simply put on the lid and either pulsate or blend your delicious frozen beverage for approximately 30 seconds.
Otherwise, feel free to go a little crazy and create some of your own recipes for delicious frozen fruit smoothies or check back often as we continuously add new recipes.
A word of caution however needs to be said as once you start making smoothies, it’s very hard to stop. If you find yourself enjoying these delicious fruit smoothies half as much as I do, then you become hooked on blending smoothies as soon as you taste your first creation.
