  • Blend all ingredients together except chopped Prunes into a blender until smooth.

  • Tips: To work well with your smoothie recipe, always remember to make first priority of adding the liquid to the blender. This will make blending process quicker and easier.

    Always start your blending process at low speed until the big pieces of fruit started to break up. Starting at a high speed level will create air bubbles and the blades will just spin around inside it.

    Always add the ice last on the blender. Putting your ice quickly will make your smoothie watery and not frosty and icy like all we love.

    Always, if possible, use fresh ingredients like fresh juice, fresh squeezed juice as this will greatly enhance your smoothie plus healthier.

    Always do this procedure when combining all your ingredients, liquid, frozen fruit, powders/add-ins, ice, and add fresh fruit last.

    When your shake is too thin, add few ice cubes, frozen fruits, or any sugar-free instant pudding mix to thicken it.

    When your shake is not creamy enough, try adding more milk or sugar-free instant pudding mix to make it creamier.

    When your shake is not frothy, prolong the whip on your blender to achieve the desired foam.

    To make sure all ingredients dissolves evenly, try adding water and ice cubes first then when the cubes were lightly dissolved, you can add now your ingredients.

    Using frozen fruits have an advantage because they thicken your smoothie than when the fruit is warm.

    When freezing fruit like banana, make sure to chopped and spread it into a baking sheet or a plate before refrigerating. This will ensure they won’t freeze into one big lump then store it in a container.

    If you want to keep your smoothie healthy, you can reduce the fat content of your shake by using healthy substitutions. Use skim or soy milk instead of the usual milk or frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.
