Fruit Ingredients.

Nearly all smoothie recipes have some fruit listed in their ingredients. Pure vegetable concoctions are best left until you have a few under your belt -  as they can be something of an acquired taste.

Just about any fruit can be used, unpeeled and roughly cut – straight into the blender.

Fruits can be frozen to keep them fresh and help cool down the mixture. Frozen produce loses very little of its goodness and lasts for months in the freezer.

Just remember to peel the bananas and remove the stones from the cherries – and you’ll be fine!
