Chef's Notes

  • Use any fresh or frozen fruit, such as peaches, blueberries, raspberries, or mangoes. Use fruits in season when you can.
  • For a creamier smoothie, use nonfat, soy, or 1% milk instead of orange juice.
  • Freeze slices of fruits that are about to go bad. Use these in your smoothies.
  • If smoothie is too thick, add water or ice. If smoothie is too thin, add more fruit.
  • If you don’t have a blender, use a fork to mash the fruit. Whisk in the other ingredients. Serve over ice.
