Whole Fruit Smoothie

Whole Fruit, Yummy, Vita Mix Smoothie/ Snippets of DesignConsidering it is the beginning of a New Year & many of us are going a little more out of our way to be healthy,

I thought I would share with you my favorite whole fruit smoothie which also happens to be the main

whole fruit smoothie recipe that Vita-Mix demonstrators use.

As I shared in {this} post, my family owns the Vita-Mix Corporation.

For most of my childhood, most of my family was involved in Vita-Mix somehow so this smoothie is almost second nature to me.

It usually consists of “a little bit of this” & a “little bit of that” so bear

with me as I try to write it down and share with you a few variations as well…

but don’t worry cause even though it may end up slightly different every time,

you can’t really mess it up either…

Whole Fruit Smoothie/Snippets of DesignI believe that this smoothie can be made in most blenders except, I gotta be honest,

I am not sure, I have never tried any other blenders.

I use mostly frozen fruit but it is always good to throw in a whole apple, banana or some fresh spinach for extra nutrients.

I also have a thing now for adding a low-fat yogurt or some protein shake mix, especially after my workouts.

Whole Fruit Smoothie Recipe
Healthy, Drink, Fruit, Strawberries, Smoothie, Peaches, Mix, Vita, Whole
Cooks in   
Ingredients
  • 4-6 cups frozen fruit {strawberries, blueberries,peaches,mango,etc.}
  • 2 cups low fat or skim milk, water, or both
  • 1-2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4-1/2 cups sugar, a couple packets of sugar substitute, or 1-2 tsp. honey {optional}
  • 1 banana
Directions
  • Add the water or milk to the blender container. Add remaining ingredients. The official Vita-Mix recipe generally used honey or no sweetener but I honestly prefer sugar or sugar substitute. Blend on medium speed until the ingredients in the blender start to move. Switch the speed from medium to high. Repeat until ingredients are well blended. Enjoy!
  • Hints: If using fresh fruits & a Vita-Mix, add the fruits whole & add some ice instead of the water.
  • Optionally, you can add things like a yogurt or some protein powder.

xo,

Signature
