  • Use chipped or cracked ice instead of whole cubes so you do not over stress your blender.
  • To create a smooth consistent beverage, mix all the liquid ingredients first, next add the fruit (if applicable) and then the ice.
  • Use frozen fruit and chilled ingredients whenever possible. Use prepackaged frozen fruit or simply place your fresh strawberries or bananas in the freezer for half an hour.
  • Keep in mind that most delicious non-alcoholic beverages can be converted to more adult treats with the addition of the appropriate alcohol such as adding rum to a banana smoothie.
