Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Apple Banana Smoothie Chill The Ingredients: Want your smoothie to be refreshingly cold without watering it down with too much ice? The trick is to chill your ingredients beforehand. Pop your apple and banana slices in the freezer for a bit before blending, and make sure your milk and yogurt are straight from the fridge.  (I keep frozen banana in my freezer for smoothies.) You'll get a frosty smoothie that's full of flavor!

Cut the Fruit into Small Pieces: Make your blender's job easier and ensure a smoother blend by cutting your fruits into small pieces before adding them to the blender.

Add Ice Last:  Remember to add ice last, after all your other ingredients are well-blended.

Consider Ad Ins:  You can top your smoothie with granola, hemp seeds, flax seeds, or chia seeds for extra texture and nutritions.  Almond butter, peanut butter or even cashew butter are also great options.
