How to make the BEST Smoothies (10 tips)

1. Never stick a spoon or spatula in a running blender.
2. Pour the liquid in the blender first. Then add the fruit. This will help to get things moving.  Never, no matter what, add sticky or thick things like peanut butter in the blender first.
3. Start the blender on the lowest speed and gradually increase the speed to high, and shut it down the same way, gradually slowing it down.

4. Hold the blender lid firmly on– especially when starting and stoping the blender – if you do remove the lid while it is running, gradually reduce blender speed to lowest setting before turning it complexly off.

5. If you can’t eat fresh fruit fast enough, freeze it for smoothies. (Peel it, cut it into small chunks, put it in a zip lock) Anything goes grapes, apples, kiwi, bananas, berries, oranges, mangoes, anything really. Avocados can even be frozen.
6. In winter, add something hearty or rich like bananas, nut butters, tahini, oatmeal or avocado, for a little extra heartiness.
7. A smoothie is not a milkshake. Try to keep it healthy. Otherwise, just have a milkshake.  Use soy, almond, rice or coconut milk, fruit or veggie juice, aloe or just water. Use maple syrup, brown rice syrup, honey, agave, or fruit itself,  as sweetener.
8. Play around with adding fresh herbs and spices and seeds.
9. Chilly frosty smoothies are yummy. Room-temperature smoothies are not as tasty. If not using any frozen fruit, throw in a few ice cubes. It makes it so much more palatable.
10. If your smoothie is bland…try adding a little citrus juice, or zest to brighten up the flavor.

  1. good morning i was wondering if you had any other smoothie recipes to share? i am in the process of detoxing and need inspiration. my plan is to do a 3 day detox to cleanse and get my body and mind in a healthy place. I eat fish/seafood 2x a week, no dairy or other animal products. Thank you for your time.

    1. Elsa there are several smoothies on the blog- just type smoothie in the search bar and good luck with your detox!

  2. Thank you, it was so good! I used the ice cubes this time, but would it still work leaving them out completely, since it’s winter?

    Please post more smoothie recipes. I’d love a not-boring one with blueberries from you 🙂

  3. This looks so delicious! I keep finding myself coming back to this blog for healthy treats and ideas and still i am impressed with the unique recipes you share! That Kiwi mix looks so good! I think i might just have to try it out. Thanks for the goodie yet again!

  4. In this smoothie is a vitamin C bomb. The kiwi and lime combo is perfect. I gathered the best paleo desserts on my blog here – and I listed this smoothie recipe as well. Thanks for the great recipe and presentation.

  5. This looks delicious. Surprisingly, I have all the ingredients on hand. Re her suggestion to not put spoons in the blender, I have a wooden spoon I call “the object lesson”. I used it instead of pusher in the food processor.

  6. I am not really fond of including ice cubes into the smoothies, I like to freeze my fruits 🙂 Which liquid do you recommend if we do not have vegetable milk? Which juice suits this smoothie better? thanks!

    1. Yes, absolutely freeze the kiwi! I really think most fruit juices would taste good here…apple, orange, pineapple…play around with it!

  7. Wow, that is a crazy color. I need to eat something like this for breakfast more often, too. I’ll try it!

  8. Throw in a few leaves of kale, spinach, celery, or whatever green leaves you happen to have on hand, & you are on your way to nutrition at the cellular level. You do not even taste the green veggies once blended. I add a scoop of powdered Whey for protein & call it breakfast.And don’t forget that you can use edible flowers from your garden too! Hibiscus, pansy, nastursium,lavender,are all edible but feel free to Google edible flowers to feel comfortable doing this. The leaves of broccoli usually get thrown away sadly..but are also edible & blended in, have no aftertaste. Celery leaves usually get cut off & thrown away but can be blended into a green smoothie. The point of all this is that cooking destroys the natural enzymes that raw fruits & veggies have so by blendarizing greens into a smoothie, you get nutrition in it’s natural form. All those B vitamins necessary for energy & cellular repair. It is strange how all you taste is the fruits you add, never the green veggies. I am hooked & feel terrible on any day I go without my green smoothie. Experiment & find what tickles your fancy.

  9. Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole’s Chatter is collecting links to posts about shakes and smoothies. I do hope you link this lovely one in. This is the link . Please do pop back to check out some of the other links – there are a lot of good ones already. Have a great week.

  10. Tried this. It was pretty good except I think I put a little too much honey in it. Next time I will put less or maybe omit it completely.

  11. Just got a bag of kiwis from my CSA — I had NO idea what to do with them, but this sounds like a great idea!

  12. i just made this and it’s super yummy! The perfect balance of sweet from the honey, rich creaminess from the avocado and tartness from the kiwi! mmmmmmmmm!

  13. Oh wow this looks delicious. I’m lucky enough to live on an avocado orchard, however finding MANY things to do with avocado is hard and shockingly it’s easy to get sick of them. Thanks for the recipe!

  14. This sounds so satisfying! One of my favorite snacks is avocado with a sprinkle of salt, squirt of lemon, and drizzle of honey. This is like the creamier, smoothier version of my favorite snack! Such a great idea.
