The variety of fruits you can add to a smoothie is endless. Let your creativity and taste buds guide you. I don’t know about you, but I love adding an equal percentage of fruits and greens to my fruit smoothie recipes.
The natural sweetness of fruits counteracts the green taste of vegetables. Fruits are also a great way to sweeten and thicken your smoothie naturally. It should be noted that if the fruit you desire is not in season, you can also use frozen fruits.
