Tips and Suggestions

How to Freeze Fruit for Smoothies: Place cut-up fruit for each batch of smoothies in separate freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 month. To use, prepare as directed using only 1/2 cup ice cubes. No need to thaw the fruit before using.

Creative Leftovers: Pour any leftover smoothie mixture into small paper cups, cover tightly with foil. Freeze up to 1 month. Place in refrigerator the night before and grab the thawed smoothie as you walk out the door the next morning. Or, use leftover smoothies to prepare frozen pops. Just place a wooden pop stick in center of each filled paper cup, then cover with foil and freeze until firm.

Nutrition Bonus: Trying to get more fruit into your diet? This low fat smoothie provides 1/2 cup of the recommended 2 cups of fruit per day. As an added bonus, the strawberries are rich in vitamin C.
