Note:

Individually quick-frozen (IQF) technology has made high-quality frozen fruit possible, with a nutritional value on par with that of fresh fruit. Frozen fruit is ideal for using in smoothies, chilling the drink without diluting it as ice would.

For a tropical spin, substitute 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks for the blackberries and strawberries.
