Picking the best fruit for smoothies
This fruit smoothie can be made with fresh or frozen fruit. I used fresh fruit to get the most out of summer produce and to give the smoothie the best possible flavor. Use these tips when making a smoothie recipe with fresh fruit:
- Pineapple: There are a few tricks to choosing the perfect ripe pineapple. First, look for a pineapple that gives slightly as you squeeze it (don’t worry about the strange looks in the supermarket). Lastly, if you try to pull a leaf from the pineapple and it comes out easily, you’ll know it’s ripe enough to eat.
- Strawberries: While you can usually find organic strawberries year-round, June is peak strawberry season. Look for berries with vibrant red skin and little to no blemishes.
- Bananas: You can find bananas at most major grocery stores year-round. The riper the bananas, the sweeter they’ll taste. If they’re overly ripe, simply remove the peel and store the bananas in a container in the freezer until you’re ready to blend.
Remember: Just because your bananas are overly ripe doesn’t mean you have to throw them away! Either use them up in banana muffins, banana oat cookies, or place them in the freezer to use in even more smoothie recipes.

Tips to make the best fruit smoothie
- Freeze your fruit – Chop up your fresh berries, bananas, and pineapple and place them in a container in the freezer. Making a smoothie with frozen fruit will give it the best and smoothest consistency.
- Add ice – No time to freeze your fruit? You can still make an ice-cold and slushy smoothie by blending the fresh fruit with a handful of ice.
- Milk – Use any kind of dairy free (almond, oat) or regular milk you like to make this smoothie recipe.
- Make fruit smoothie popsicles – Turn this into a tropical fruit popsicle by pouring the smoothie mixture into popsicle molds and freezing. They’re a delicious and healthy snack for kids!

Can you make smoothies ahead of time?
The best way to make smoothies ahead of time is to blend it up in a blender, pour into a freezer safe mason jar and then freeze. Place in the refrigerator overnight to naturally thaw so it’s all ready for you the next day.
To save time you can also prepare the ingredients ahead of time by chopping up the fruit and portioning it into sealed jars. Keep the jars in the freezer until it’s time to dump them in a blender with milk and make your smoothie!
