*When using green leafy veggies, blend them with your liquid(s) first, and then blend the frozen fruit.
*Use a banana or avocado to get the "smooth" consistency (and extra vitamins).
*If you struggle with having chunks of fruits after blending, consider adding one fruit at a time until well blended.
*Smoothies are great for picky eaters because you can "hide" the vegetables (spinach and green chard are perfect choices because you don't taste them at all). You can even make it fun for kids by adding a straw or putting it in a fun cup.
Bottom line: Load up on those fruit & veggies, and don't give up :-)
Fast cleaning tip: After enjoying your smoothie, put some water with a few drops of dish detergent in the blender and mix for a few seconds. This will prevent difficult cleaning later.
