*If you have a Vitamix you can use the tamper to push everything towards the blade. If you have a regular blender, just remember to put the fresh fruits & veggies on the bottom and the frozen stuff on top. That way your blade can be free to do it’s thing, rather than getting locked up. The more frozen ingredients you use, the more liquid you will need to add. With practice you can eyeball everything like a pro!
Experiment with different combinations and find your favorite. If you like sweeter smoothies, use sweet fruits like bananas, grapes and pineapple. You can even throw in a pitted date or two to make drinking your greens more fun. Over time you might notice your palate change, and you will use no sweetener and stronger greens like mustard and collards. Or you just might find that your smoothie is perfection – and you don’t mess with perfection! Either way, you win because you are fueling your body for life.
