Try these tips and tricks to get you started:
- Blend the leafy greens and liquid base first to avoid chunks.
- Defrost frozen fruit overnight so it will be softer.

So, break out your blender and try these fresh, delicious smoothie recipes the next time you’re craving a healthy, all-natural snack.
There is no doubting the popularity of smoothies and juices in the world of nutrition. However, getting started may seem daunting if you aren’t prepared in terms of mixing certain fruits and veggies to produce a great tasting drink.
