How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

Last Updated on

Fruit smoothies are easy to whip up, making them the perfect option for a quick and delicious breakfast or snack. To make a fruit smoothie, you just need a few simple ingredients, a blender, and about five minutes to spare. Fruit smoothies are also easily customizable. You can blend up a mixed berry smoothie, a tropical smoothie, a mango smoothie, or any flavor combination you can imagine. The sky is the limit.

How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

Fruit smoothies typically consist of a few key ingredients: a half-cup of fruit, one cup yogurt, a small banana, and ice. You can omit the ice if you’re using frozen fruit. You can also add in a touch of fruit juice or milk to thin out the consistency if your smoothie is too thick. Once you have all of your ingredients in hand, just add them to a blender and process until smooth. For some variety, you can choose an add-in (or two!), such as a spoonful of nut butter, a tablespoon of chia seeds, a scoop of protein powder, or a teaspoon of flaxseed.
