General Tips for your smoothie:
ICE: If you only have fresh fruit, but want a cold smoothie, you can add as much ice as necessary. Often frozen fruit is the main ingredient, so ice isn’t needed. However, you can use fresh fruit and combine it with ice.
MILK: If you’re trying to get extra calcuim, milk is a great idea. Keep in mind, this can numb the flavors. To compensate, try to add a spoon or two of frozen fruit juice concentrate.
SOY MILK: Can often taste incredible, and you’re adding soy protein. Soy’s been controversial lately because of horomones(but then again, what isn’t?). Just be cafeful, if you add too much soy, you can create a flavor that doesn’t mesh as well.
YOGURT: The type of yogurt is interchangable – try fat free, vanilla, plain, etc. This gives it texture, but make sure it doesn’t take away from the flavor. You can add honey or extra sugar if it’s taking away from the flavor.
EXPERIMENT: If you don’t like strawberries, add rasberries. Have fun!
