  • I use both, whatever we have in the house at the time.

  • Either works. I buy fresh and freeze myself. Using all frozen fruits means using more liquid to get it blend-able. Using all fresh means using little liquid to get it blend-able. I always have strawberries & blueberries in the freezer, and I'll use kiwi, mango, banana, peach, fresh or frozen, depending if I've frozen some or if I just bought some fresh. In the summer my kids prefer all frozen so it's colder.

  • I use frozen because I like the smoothie frozen and don't ever have ice to add to fresh. Sometimes I will use fresh fruit and add a different fruit that is frozen, so it is still icy.

  • there isn't really a difference besides temperature, unless the frozen fruit has added sugar. The kind I buy doesn't.

  • I always use frozen to give it more of a frozen drink consistency.

  • Some fruits are better frozen and some fresh and some are ok either way. Blueberries are better frozen, strawberries are better fresh, bananas are ok either way. Some fruits you can't find except frozen or they would be hard to prepare. Frozen peaches are nice and easy.

  • I prefer fresh. Whenever I use frozen they just taste awful. :(
