Easy Frozen Fruit Smoothie Recipe
I personally love smoothies. I can’t get enough of them. I would eat them every day if I could. 🙂 This is my basic recipe to create what I call the perfect smoothie. It is such an easy smoothie recipe. You can do all water for your liquid, but I suggest you add some sweetener to it. This recipe is so versatile and can be customized to what you like. It calls for a cup of frozen fruit and I typically use strawberries or blueberries. However, you could use banana, pineapple, mango or a combination! This Spinach Pineapple Green Smoothie is another favorite smoothie I absolutely love!
How do you make smoothies with frozen berries?
The recipe calls for a cup of liquid. You can use water but I like it with 1/2 cup juice and 1/2 cup water. Orange juice, apple juice and even pineapple juice make for a delicious smoothie. Sometimes, I just use what I have in the fridge. 🙂 This healthy smoothie is a hit no matter what juice I use!
You want to make sure you have a good blender. I have been thru some cheap ones and they barely last a week. They just can’t handle the ice and frozen fruit. Don’t waste your time like I did with these cheaper models, and just get something nice from the get go. It will save you time and money!
I have a Vitamix now and I love it. We have had it for many years and it’s still working to make smoothies and more! It’s paid for itself time and time again with all the money I have saved making smoothies and milkshakes at home. It is pricey but it’s truly worth it. You won’t have to keep replacing it like with the cheaper blenders. Amazon has several of them on sale right now for a great price.
If you just can’t make it work in the budget, I recommend a Waring professional blender. It’s the next best thing and it will get the job done. It’s not as good as the Vitamix but it’s a close second for a more reasonable price. Amazon has several Waring blenders on sale right now.

The kids love them as well! It’s so fun to mix up the flavors and try new fruits. I like to sneak in a little spinach and some carrots. You can’t taste them at all. If you use just a little, it doesn’t turn the mixture green if you have children that might be resistant. A few of my kids are extra picky so I use the mixed berry frozen fruit to sneak in spinach. This berry blend has blueberries, blackberries and strawberries so it’s much darker. Even really picky kids can’t see the spinach. If your kids are like this, you might try this blend first.
Sometimes when I use banana, I will also throw in some peanut butter. It is amazing! Another trick I have is to freeze my bananas. It makes the smoothie taste like a frosty. This is also a good way to use up bananas that might be going bad soon. Chop them up and freeze them!
