  • buy bags of frozen fruit or berries, that way you don't have to add ice, add your favorite kind of juice about half way after adding the fruit, you can also add fresh fruit with the frozen fruit, and liquefy it. it's SO good and so refreshing on hot days

  • You need a recipe, because just adding a bunch of stuff together can make it turn out bad. You'll need a specific amount of ice, yogurt, fruit, etc. Go to,,, for recipes on smoothies. Or search google .. "Smoothie Recipes."

  • Oh, I have one of those, mine needs to have liquids put in it first (milk), then you can add your fruit and or veggies and ice cubes. Make sure that thing doesn't over heat...mine does that really easily. Btw, it doesn't need frozen fruit or juice, innless you want a smoothie made out of one.

    This is what I do for a banana smoothie: put in about 1 cup and 1/2milk, one or two bananas, and lots of ice, like maybe 15 cubes. You can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract too, I can't since I’m pregnant, but it's yummy. You could apply the same idea to any other type of fruit smoothie. The really good ones do have yogurt..If you add ice-cream and milk, then you will make a milk shake

  • frozen blueberries, frozen banana, kale (lots of calcium and iron), orange juice or kiwi or another vitamin C source (to increase the absorbtion of the C); yogurt
