Our Smoothie top tips:

1. Invest in a blender with at least an 800W motor.

2. Buy frozen fruit to save time. Or prepare your own, cut and freeze on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag or container.

3. Frozen bananas go a long way. Peel, slice, and freeze them. This go-to smoothie recipe ingredient adds thickness without taking over other flavors.

4. Add smoothie recipe ingredients like milk, yogurt, water, or juice first to get the blender moving. Then, add lighter, drier ingredients, like leafy greens, followed by heavy ingredients like ice and fruit pieces, in that order.
