  • 1 Part Frozen Base
  • 1 Part Liquid Base
  • 1/2 Part Flavor Adjuster
  • Up to 1/3 Part Supporting Flavors


  • Using ice instead of frozen fruit: the consequence is you get ice shards and a diluted taste. It melts way faster (into a watery drink) and makes for a less satiating smoothie.
  • Smoothie shops often use frozen banana and almond milk as a base
  • Not blending long enough. Start slow, pulse, and work your way to a fast setting, then let it go for a solid 20-60 seconds, depending on the strength of your blender.
