Blending with ice can break your blades on your blender. I use a magic bullet and I found that ice has broke my blades before. I wanted to find a way to enjoy my smoothies without ice. If you have an awesome blender that can blend ice, go for it. You can always add ice after you blend as well.
I know strawberries can not last that long in the fridge. I found that if you cut and prepare your strawberries, you can freeze them to make them last longer. Cut the stems off and slice once down the middle and place them in sandwich bags. They should last twice as long in the freezer.
Bananas can turn brown over time. Most people will make banana bread when they turn brown. To make them last longer, put them in the freezer along with the strawberries. Do not freeze them with the banana peel. Peel them and slice them to make it ready to blend.
Smoothies are really healthy to have in your diet. Greek yogurt is healthier than regular yogurt. It can help with an upset stomach, because yogurt contains probiotics. You can add anything you want to a smoothie, but I have found that bananas and strawberries taste good together. If you don't like pomegranates you can try a kiwi-strawberry juice. Apple juice in very high in fructose, so it wouldn't be the best choice. You can always add other fruits as well such as: blueberries, kiwi, watermelon, and raspberries.
