Smoothies are so refreshing, especially during warmer weather. They are packed with nutrients and make a great breakfast or other meal replacement. If you are always on the go like me, you can make a big batch and keep it in the fridge. Just pour and go in the morning!

This recipe varies from the type of smoothie I usually make, as it doesn’t involve ice or liquids as the main ingredient. The main ingredients in this fruit smoothie is FRUIT! Liquids are only used to thin it out. Of course, you can add ice or use frozen berries if you prefer a colder smoothie.

Check the consistency of the smoothie. If it is too thick, add more water, apple juice or almond milk and blend 60 more seconds until thoroughly blended. Texture should be thick but thin enough to drink through a straw.

Serve cold and add whipped cream and fresh strawberry for extra sweetness.

Can I Use Fresh Strawberries in a Smoothie Instead of Frozen Strawberries?

The reason I use frozen strawberries in a smoothie is the frozen strawberries really add that thick consistency a smoothie should have. You can use fresh strawberries in a smoothie instead of frozen strawberries, but I recommend adding ice to the blender to give it the right consistency.
