Iced Fruit Smoothie
When this recipe was first submitted, I considered deleting it. It's too easy and specific ingredients aren't specified. But then I got to thinking... that's the beauty of smoothies. They ARE incredibly easy and you can use any ingredients you want. The idea of frozen fruit is something every smoothie lover should consider. I keep sliced bananas in the freezer so I won't need ice which can make a smoothie too watery. For this recipe test, I just threw together everything I had laying around the kitchen: frozen bananas, blueberries, raspberries and pineapple and a little fresh strawberry and pear. I didn't use quite as much milk as the recipe states. I like a thicker drink, so I used just enough milk to cover my fruit in the blender. The result was terrific... proving that smoothies are versatile and pretty hard to mess up. (This recipe was submitted in 2006. It was tested and photographed in September 2015.)
- frozen fruit of whatever kind you like (about 2 cups)
2 cups skim milk
How To Make Iced Fruit Smoothies
Pour two cups of skim milk into the blender.
Put frozen fruit into the blender (as much as you think you want, also keep frozen). Blend on liquefy until smooth.
Enjoy! It probably sounds too easy, but if you use fruits you love then you really don't need any other ingredients.
A painfully basic smoothie recipe. You don't have to use any ice cubes if you use frozen fruit. Combo freezer packs containing multiple kinds of frozen berries work best for this one.
