Ice cubes

Ice cream

To begin, combine the fruit juice and milk into the blender. Then add your fruit. You can use either fresh or frozen fruit or a combination of both.

If you do not have a blender you can also learn with a shaker or a food processor. If you must use a shaker, you will have more success if you cut the fruit into small pieces.

Next, add an additional eight ounces of liquid. Instead of juice, if you choose to do so you can instead use yogurt or ice cream. Finally, add the ice cubes.

Most of the time, four or five cubes are plenty. If there are any concerns about causing the smoothie to become too thin, fewer ice cubes can be used and more added until the desired consistency is reached.

Turn on the blender using the puree setting. Some blenders do feature smoothie settings, if you have one of these, use that setting instead.

In approximately 30 seconds, the ice cubes will be chopped up finely and well blended. Your smoothie will be ready to be enjoyed now. For additional sweetness, add honey or sugar as needed.
