Acclimating to Smoothies
If you're new to smoothies, you can add more fruit, such as strawberries and berries, to achieve a flavor that works best for your taste buds. As you progress with drinking smoothies, you can experiment with more healthy ingredients.
My favorite fruit for smoothies:
  • frozen mixed berries
  • frozen blueberries
  • oranges
  • pineapple
