HERE ARE SOME SMOOTHIE TIPS
If you use frozen fruit your smoothie will come out thick and cold.
We suggest pre-freezing bananas for smoothies.
Just peel the bananas and cut them into 1-inch chunks, put into a sealed container and freeze. Use as needed.
If you like to drink smoothies, you can pre-freeze several chopped banana chunks and always have them on hand.
When you use frozen fruits, you can omit the ice cubes.
