An easy way to make smoothies?!

Question: help? what goes in it? and all that good stuff?

Answers: help? what goes in it? and all that good stuff?

First, chopped fruit (one type of fruit or several) is the smoothie's fruit base. Great fruits to use are bananas, berries (including strawberries and blackberries), pineapples, mangos, and/or kiwi.

Second, add an ingredient to the smoothie as a thickener. Good choices include low-fat yogurt, low-fat frozen yogurt, a can of frozen juice concentrate, frozen fruit, or a cup of ice. How much of these ingredients you will use depends on how thick you want your smoothie to be.

Third, you will need a liquid so everything will blend smoothly. You can add skim milk, soy milk, fruit juice or even water (some smoothie makers use flavored water). Start with 1/4 cup and then add more if needed.

An extra option to enhance flavor is to add a sweetner, cinnamon or vanilla extract.

A good rule of thumb for the ingredient measurements is to make your smoothie with 1 part fruit, 1 part liquid, and 2 parts thick base. For example: for 1 smoothie (a little over 1 cup), you would use 1/4 cup fruit, 1/4 cup liquid, and 1/2 cup thickener. But these measurements are not set in stone. The great thing about smoothies is you can experiment to get exactly what you want!

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately or refrigerate. You may want to serve in a chilled glass if serving immediately

fresh or frozen fruit, yogurt, milk, ice...blend and enjoy

fruits, sugar, ay know all that good stuff

bananas, ice, yogurt, other flavorings

Frozen fruit (berries, mangos, bananas, etc.), yogurt, and a little bit of juice (apple, orange, cranberry, etc.).

The frozen fruit (as opposed to fresh) keeps the smoothie cold.
