How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

While we can’t recommend asparagus or cheddar-flavored drinks, we encourage you to experiment, using this road map to the ultimate healthy blended beverage.

Step 1: Choose fruit and juice
Choose your fruit and fruit juice.

A variety of flavors mixed together can make for the most satisfying smoothie—a few dashes of cranberry juice or a squeeze of lime may be just what that O.J. and banana combo needs.

Step 2: Peel, pit, or de-seed fruit
Peel, pit, or de-seed your fruit if necessary.

Step 3: Put in fruit, add juice
Put the fruit in the blender, and add the juice.

For a sweet smoothie, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey. For a cold one, add 6 to 8 ice cubes. And for an extra health kick, throw in protein powder, wheat germ, bee pollen, or flaxseed.

Step 4: Add milk, cream, or yogurt
Add the milk, light cream, or yogurt to give the smoothie a rich and silky texture.

Step 5: Blend
Put the lid on the blender, and blend at a medium speed until smooth.

Running your blender too high will turn your creation into glorified fruit juice. Running it too slow will leave behind large chunks of unblended fruit.

Step 6: Taste
Stop the blender and do a taste test, then make any necessary adjustments, adding yogurt or ice to thicken, honey to sweeten.

Step 7: Pour and serve
Pour your smoothie into the glass, and serve.

Did You Know?
The South American variant of the smoothie is called a ‘licuado,’ as in ‘liquefied’ or ‘blended.’
