Four-Fruit Smoothie

Yield Makes 3 1/2 cups
Notes: This recipe came from Cerrithwen Genetti of Cazadero, California. To freeze fruit pieces, set them slightly apart on a baking sheet. Put in the freezer until firm, 1 to 2 hours. To store longer, transfer frozen fruit to a freezer container. Or buy individually quick-frozen fruit pieces or berries by the bag, pour out the amount of fruit you need, then seal bag and store in the freezer.

  • 1 3/4 cups frozen banana chunks (cut into 1-in. pieces)
