Smoothies are a quick and easy option for breakfast or a snack. If you like your smoothie thick enough to eat with a spoon, use all frozen fruit. Here is a basic recipe to help you make your own combinations and a few combinations we liked.
Basic Recipe for a 2-Cup Smoothie:
1 cup frozen fruit + 1 cup fresh fruit + ½ cup silken tofu or plain yogurt
Hint: Always use a clean, fresh-smelling board to cut your fruit – garlic- or onion-flavored fruit is just not nice.
