Simple Frozen Fruit Smoothie — This basic smoothie recipe is packed with berries, strawberry yogurt, and your choice of milk. Smoothie recipes with frozen fruit are the best because they don’t need any ice to reach the perfect consistency!
Basic Smoothie Recipe Using Frozen Fruit
I love smoothies. They’re fast, easy, healthy, and refreshing. This one has just three ingredients but you’d never know it based on how creamy, smooth, and satisfying it is.
Between the naturally sweet fruit and the strawberry yogurt, I didn’t need to add a sweetener to the smoothie. Love it when that happens!
The recipe as written will serve two, and you can freeze the second portion for later. Or get creative and make frozen yogurt popsicles with it. However you try it, you’re going to love it!
Ingredients for Frozen Fruit Smoothies
This is a basic frozen fruit smoothie with yogurt. I made it a no-frills recipe so you can add any extra ingredients you like. Or, keep it to the following three ingredients:
- Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk
- Silk Strawberry Dairy-Free Yogurt
- Frozen mixed berry blend
I got the ingredients at Vons. Look for the “new” tag at your local Von’s or Safeway stores to find new items like these at great values.
Do I Have to Use Non-Dairy Ingredients?
Nope! You can use any yogurt and milk combination you’d like. I simply prefer my frozen fruit and yogurt smoothies to be dairy-free.
Do I Have to Make Smoothies with Frozen Fruit?
Technically no, but I prefer making frozen fruit smoothies for a couple reasons:
- By using frozen fruit, I didn’t need to add ice, which can water down smoothies.
- Frozen fruit is cheaper than fresh and is readily available even when it’s not berry season.
How to Make a Frozen Fruit Smoothie
Making smoothies with frozen fruit is a cinch! Here are the basic steps:
- Add the frozen fruit smoothie ingredients into a blender, but reserve half of the cashew milk.
- Blend the smoothie ingredients until smooth, and pour in the remaining cashew milk slowly until desired consistency is reached.
Adjusting the Consistency of Your Smoothie
For a thicker frozen fruit smoothie, add less milk. For a thinner smoothie, add a little more milk.
As I mentioned already, this I kept this a very basic smoothie recipe on purpose.
The combination of frozen fruit, yogurt, and milk gives you a great canvas for adding any mix-ins you’d like:
- Chia or flax seeds
- Nut or seed butter
- Leafy greens (like spinach or kale)
- Cacao nibs or cocoa powder
- Protein powder
- Different frozen fruit(s)
Tips for the Best Fruit Smoothie
- The frozen fruit in this easy smoothie recipe can be substituted with fresh fruit, if desired. You’ll need to add a handful of ice, though. If berries are in season, you can buy them fresh and freeze them the night before!
- Also, feel free to switch out the other ingredients as you see fit. Play around with the yogurt flavor you use, or use plain yogurt and sweeten with a little honey or maple syrup instead.
- And any non-dairy milk from Silk would pair nicely with the flavors of this smoothie, so don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to cashew milk.
Any leftover frozen mixed fruit smoothie mixture can be frozen for up to one month. Just cover the top of the glass with plastic wrap or store in a sealed container.
When you’re ready to enjoy the prepped smoothie, let it rest on the counter for 30 minutes before drinking.
Pin This Recipe
- 8 ounces (1 heaping cup) frozen mixed berries*
- 6 ounces Silk Strawberry Dairy-Free Yogurt (or your favorite)
- 1 cup Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk (or your favorite milk)
- Add the fruit, yogurt, and about 1/2 cup milk to the canister of a blender or food processor. Blend on high power and drizzle in remaining milk, as needed, until desired smoothie texture and consistency is achieved. Serve immediately.
- Extra portion will keep in a freezer-safe (plastic) glass for up to 1 month in the freezer. Allow to thaw at room temp for about 1 hour before serving. Alternatively, freeze extra portion in popsicle molds.
*I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries; fresh may be substituted but you’ll need to add ice.
