Tips for the Best Fruit Smoothie (From a Habits Expert)
Add a creamy element:
To create a smooth and velvety texture, include a creamy element in your smoothie. Greek yogurt, almond milk, coconut milk, or a scoop of nut butter can add creaminess while also boosting the overall flavor.
Enhance with a liquid base:
Choose a liquid base to blend your smoothie ingredients smoothly. Options like water, almond milk, oat milk, or coconut water all work well. Adjust the amount of liquid based on your desired consistency — add more for a thinner smoothie or less for a thicker one.
Boost with additional ingredients:
Take your smoothie to the next level by adding extra nutritional boosts. Consider adding a handful of spinach or kale for added veggie love. You can also include chia seeds, flaxseeds, protein powder for additional protein (check out my favorite protein packed smoothies here!).
Embrace frozen fruits:
Using frozen fruits in your smoothie can enhance both the texture and flavor by adding a thick and frosty consistency without the need for ice. Plus, frozen fruits are often picked at their peak ripeness and flash-frozen, locking in nutrients and flavors. Keep a variety of frozen fruits on hand, such as berries, mango chunks, or sliced bananas, so you can easily whip up a smoothie whenever the craving strikes.
Amp up the protein:
To transform your fruit smoothie into a more satisfying and nutritious meal or snack, consider adding a protein boost! You can incorporate protein into your smoothie by adding ingredients like Greek yogurt, silken tofu, protein powder (such as whey or plant-based protein), or a spoonful of nut butter.

How to Make a Fruit Smoothie (From Any Fruit)
Gather your ingredients:
Choose your favorite fruits, fresh or frozen. Grab a liquid base like water, milk, or fruit juice. Optional extras can include yogurt, nut butter, protein powder, or sweeteners like honey or pitted dates.
Prep the fruits:
Wash fresh fruits and remove any stems, seeds, or peels. Frozen fruits can be used as is.
Blend it up:
Put the fruits into a blender. Add any extras you want, like yogurt or nut butter.
Pour in about 1/2 to 1 cup of your chosen liquid base. This affects the consistency, so adjust to your liking.
Secure the blender lid and blend on high until everything is smooth and creamy. Usually takes 30-60 seconds. If it’s too thick, add more liquid and blend again.
