Say hello to the most beautiful smoothie recipes on the internet! Smoothies are a great healthy idea for breakfast, and speaking from experience, they are a great idea for dinner too! That’s right, it’s my go-to when I don’t have anything to eat.

Smoothies are all about finding the perfect ratio of fruit and liquid. That is why you will see in our basic smoothie recipe, we have some 1 cup of liquid for 2 cups of frozen fruit.

What goes into a smoothie recipe?

One unique thing about our smoothie recipes is that we don’t use ice. Instead, we use a 2:1 ratio of frozen fruit to liquid.

  • 2 cups of frozen fruit (banana, strawberries, mixed berries, pineapple, tropical mix, etc.)
  • 1 cup liquid (orange juice, almond milk, coconut water, coconut milk, water)

We say 2:1 with a grain of salt because everyone has their own preference. Some people like to drink smoothies through a straw and others like them thick enough to eat with a spoon. So, start with 1 cup of liquid and add more as desired.

In addition to the 2:1 fruit to liquid ratio, you can also add other ingredients like protein powder, greens, Greek yogurt, seeds, etc.

The best blender for smoothies

We have one vitamix and it costs you about $350 on Amazon. I have nothing bad to say about this beast. It’s super powerful, easy to clean, and makes making smoothies along with other things a breeze. I can tell you right now that this is the best blender I have ever owned and there is no going back.

If you’re looking for something a little smaller and the perfect size for smoothies, we recommend the Beast Blender. In fact, we got it a few months ago and it works great and is much cheaper than the Vitamix.
