The key is to keep a variety of fresh and frozen fruits on hand at all times. Two that I always keep stocked: bananas (cut some up and freeze them as soon as they’re ripe), and strawberries (freeze your own, or buy the pre-frozen ones at the supermarket). Other ideas for smoothie-friendly fruits: mangos, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, kiwi. I also recommend stocking your freezer with frozen juice concentrate – pineapple or orange juices both taste terrific in smoothies. When a hankering for smoothie hits you, you’ll be prepared: just combine about a cup of fruit with a cup of juice, add a handful of ice cubes (3-4 cubes should do it) and blend away. If it looks too thick, add some more juice; too watery, add some more fruit. You could also add yogurt to the mix, or use milk to make a fruit shake.
