To make your smoothie, you will need fruit juice or milk as your liquid base.
Put all your ingredients in the blender and circulate it until all the ingredients are liquefied. The liquid at the top should be swirling and diffusing back down to the bottom. It can take up to 45 seconds for this to happen depending on the power of your motor and how full the jar is.
Serve your smoothie with ground ice to make it more refreshing especially during hot days.
