The key to making a quality smoothie is to use quality ingredients. It's easy to make smoothies anytime you have frozen fruit on hand. You can use fresh fruit, but frozen fruit will give your smoothies an icy, chunky texture. 

Frozen fruit wholesaler AGRILINKS shows you a simple recipe that requires only a few simple ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make the best homemade smoothie.


Frozen Fruit

Frozen fruit can always be found in our freezers. Frozen fruit is used to make thick smoothies. 

You can buy already frozen fruit at the grocery store or you can freeze fresh fruit cut into 1-2 inch pieces. If using frozen fresh fruit, make sure it has been in the refrigerator for at least 4-5 hours to ensure it is completely frozen.

Pro Tip: Just before making the smoothie, remove the frozen fruit for about 5-10 minutes to allow it to thaw slightly. This will make it easier for all the ingredients to blend together.

Yogurt

Yogurt is actually a very important part of the smoothie recipe. Not only is it thick and adds a wonderful creaminess to the mixture, but it also has a slightly spicy flavor that helps balance out the sweet fruit.

However, if you like your smoothies sweet, you can always try using flavored yogurt. Plant-based and nut-based yogurts are equally effective and can be used in vegetarian or vegan diets.

As a tip, goat milk yogurt has less lactose than regular milk yogurt and is easier to digest for most lactose intolerant people.


Liquid

Unsweetened milk is the liquid of choice when making frozen fruit smoothies because it makes them very creamy and helps balance the sweetness of the fruit. You can use some of the following milks: oat milk tastes closest to regular milk and is very creamy. There is also almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, coconut milk, etc.

If you run out of milk, you can add orange juice, apple juice, or even water. Just know that smoothies will end up a little icier than creamy.


Garnish

This is where the fun begins! There are many things you can add to a smoothie to really enhance its nutritional value:.

Nuts and butter, seeds (chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds), oats, use quick cooking as they are smaller and easier to blend.

Protein powder, spirulina powder, citrus peels (lime, lemon, orange), which will look especially good on the surface of the smoothie. There are also spices (turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper), purees (pumpkin, sweet potato), etc.

Blender

You want to use a blender that can blend all the ingredients completely until they become smooth and creamy. Be careful when using it, and do not put any fruit that is frozen extra hard in the blender, as this could damage it. Also, there is no need to add ice to the smoothie. In fact, ice will eventually make the smoothie thicker than smooth and will also diminish the flavor of the fruit. Instead, use frozen fruit instead of ice to get a slushy consistency.


Are they healthy?

Yes! When smoothies are made at home, they are very healthy for you. Smoothies are made mostly from antioxidant-rich fruits, protein-rich milk and yogurt, and any other nutritious ingredients. They are relatively high in sugar and carbohydrates, so they may not be suitable for diabetics or people on low-carb diets.

You can blend many of the inserts into smoothies to make them healthier. Nuts, seeds, oils, spices, oats and protein powders are all great add-ins.
