Smoothies

I use frozen fruits with all my smoothie recipes. They come out cold and much thicker. To prep fruits for freezing (ie. fresh berries), clean and then dry them first. Then store in freezer bags and label them. For bigger fruits (bananas, melons, mangoes, papayas), I cut them up and then freeze. With these cut up fruits, the ripper the are, the sweeter they will be. All of the recipes below makes 1 serving.
