Equipment Needed

Smoothie Making Tools
Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make these delicious smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using the truly amazing personal NutriBullet Ultra as it is super-quick to set up and very easy to clean.

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make The Juice It Up Strawberry Wave Smoothie

The Juice It Up Strawberry Wave smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place strawberries, strawberry juice, and nonfat frozen yogurt into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.

If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.

Coconut milk or soy milk (with a little extra ice) can be substituted for the nonfat frozen yogurt to make this delicious smoothie dairy-free.
