HOW TO MAKE A FRUIT SMOOTHIE
Basic Frozen Fruit Smoothie Recipe
BASIC SMOOTHIE FORMULA
2 Cups Frozen Fruit
1 Cup Fresh Fruit
1/2 Cup Liquid
1/2 Cup Yogurt
Optional add-ins: nuts, seeds, oils, spices, oats & protein powder
Using a mix of fresh & frozen fruit gives your smoothie the perfect consistency. Either buy frozen or freeze fresh fruit for 4-5 hours. Before making your smoothie, allow to thaw for 5-10 minutes for easy blending.
Unsweetened milk is the liquid of choice for the perfect smoothie. Use regular cow's milk or dairy-free alternatives such as:
Yogurt adds creaminess and a slightly tangy bite. Plan, unsweetened yogurt or Greek yogurt is preferred. If you are sensitive to lactose try goat milk yogurt!
The best sweeteners to add into smoothies include:
SWEETENERS & OPTIONAL ADD-INS
Pure Maple Syrup
Stevia Liquid Extract
Nuts & Butters
Pour liquid into a blender along with yogurt, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, sweetener, and any optional add-ins. (In this order if using a traditional blender or in the reverse order if using a personal blender). Blend & Serve!
