    Do you put ice in the blender also, or just frozen fruit?

    Just the fruit.

    I love smoothies! I have lots that I like to make. I worked at a smoothie shop years ago and the way they made theirs were a couple cups of frozen fruit, a cup of juice, a scoop of ice, a scoop of yogurt and any additives like protein powder or vitamins. When I make smoothies I don’t usually add ice or yogurt but I usually use frozen fruit, a fresh or frozen banana, juice, chia seeds, hemp hearts and sometimes nuts, seeds, green powder or protein powder. If I make a green smoothie I add a leaf or two of kale or a handful of spinach and I usually use frozen berries or tropical fruit and banana as well so I don’t taste the greens. Some people I know use almond or coconut milk instead of juice if they want it creamier.

    Looking for rainbow or pink & teal grab bags!

    My go to smoothie is 1 banana, 8-10 strawberries & 1 cup of orange juice all whirled up together. It makes 2. They taste so yummy. Sometimes I add yogurt depending on my mood which stretches it even more.

    LOL – am I the only person who can’t get past the name? “Smoothie” just sounds so dumb (in my opinion).
    Also, I prefer to eat fruit rather than drink it, so I’m probably prejudiced against smoothies because of that.
