How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

If you've never made a fruit smoothie before or you are just looking for easy smoothie recipes with fruit then let me show you how to make a fruit smoothie that is healthy, easy and quick. This is a very simple fruit smoothie recipe where the main flavour is mixed berries. I don't go so far as calling it a mixed berry smoothie recipe as there are other fruits include in the recipe too.

Smoothie Recipe with Frozen Fruit

This fruit smoothie recipe shows you how to make a smoothie with frozen fruit. The reason I include frozen fruit in my smoothie recipe is to make the recipe quicker to prepare and also because frozen fruit can be stored longer than fresh fruit. If you replace the frozen fruit with fresh fruit then you have a fresh fruit smoothie but it will likely taste just as good. I'll set out the fruit smoothie recipe below but I should just point out here that the only frozen fruit I use are frozen berries. The rest I use fresh as you will see as we go through the fruit smoothie recipe. So let's take a look at how to make a fruit smoothie and the ingredients needed for this fruit smoothie recipe.

Variations on this Fruit Smoothie Recipe

This fruit smoothie recipe tastes great but it's very easy to alter it depending on what ingredients you have in your kitchen. Or it might just be that you fancy a yoghurt fruit smoothie in which case you would reduce the amount of apple juice specified in this fruit smoothie recipe and replace with yoghurt. It might be that you don't like the idea of making your fruit smoothie with frozen fruit. If that's the case simply substitute the frozen mixed berries for fresh ones but the fruit smoothie recipe is essentially the same.

Healthy Fruit Smoothie Recipe

The fruit smoothie recipe that I've provided in this hub gives the nutrition set out in the table. However, if you don't use fresh squeezed apple juice then the nutritional value will decrease. The fresh squeezed apple juice is an important healthy element to this fruit smoothie recipe. If you use apple juice from concentrate you are reducing the healthy value of the fruit smoothie.

So now you know how to make a fruit smoothie by following my delicious fruit smoothie recipe. But don't stop there. Have a look at other smoothie recipes with fruit. And be creative - there's loads of good smoothie fruit ie fruit suitable for using in smoothie recipes. One of my favourite fruit smoothie recipes apart from this one is a mango and banana fruit smoothie recipe.

      These sound like very tasty smoothies. My husband and I love any kind of smoothie. We use ice cubes in our smoothies, even though most people do not. We cannot decide whether a blender or a juicer is better. I voted your recipe with 5 stars and as useful. It has been my pleasure to visit your hub and to meet a new person to me, anyway, on the site. I also posted it to facebook. Thanks for sharing.

      Many thanks for stopping by Brakel2 and for your kind words. I would use ice cubes in some smoothie recipes but in this one I use frozen berries so don't feel the need for ice cubes too. I've also never tried using a juicer. I just stick to my trusty blender that I bought second hand years and years ago! Thanks again. Matt

      Thanks Maryjale! It's my favourite - although I say that as I'm drinking a mango and banana smoothie that I just made. Cheers
