Chef's Notes

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.

Great recipe! I had to make a few modifications based on what I had in the fridge and pantry...but overall, great refreshing drink. I left out the banana since I'm not a fan and it turned out nice and yummy. Will make again.
