I used to want to learn how to make the perfect smoothie, but somehow I always ruined it and ended up throwing it out because it never came out right. Fast forward to about a month ago and I'm smoothie crazy! I've come up with some delicious concoctions that I thought I'd share if you're new to smoothies or you're looking for a new recipe to try. This is perfect for those of you trying to eat better or you just hate paying $4 for a smoothie when you can make a fresh, flavorful one at home. It's very simple if you already buy fresh fruit like I do, or you can pick up frozen fruit if you prefer. If you have fruit that's about to go bad, don't let it go to waste! Grab it and toss it in your blender!
blueberries (about a handful)
Any standard blender (I have an Oster blender).
ice cubes (optional)
*Note: I never use exact measurements. I just estimate and go with that.
Slice your fruit if it isn't sliced already so it's easier to blend.
Toss it in the blender.
Use the 'puree' setting until all the fruit is blended well.
Use the 'liquify' setting if you don't like your smoothies to be too thick.
'Mix' setting to blend your ice to make it cold and ready to drink.
