Can I make a smoothie with only frozen strawberries & skim milk?

I am looking for some healthy and quick, as well as easy ways to make smoothies for breakfast. Can I make them with just frozen fruits and skim milk, or do I have to add ice, yogurt and/or other ingredients? Thanks

    If you freeze the fruit you can do it with just milk but I personaly do not think they are as tasty.

    I do frozen berrys, milk, and yogurt somtimes I toss in frozen bananas.

    If you dont want ice freeze the fruit, Other then that the only rule you have is milk. And you can mix just about anything with it.
    Good luck and play around you will find a good combo of things im sure

  3. You can make a smoothie with just frozen fruit and milk, but the taste may be a little tart, A good tablespoon of berry yoghurt will not add too many calories but will help with the end flavour.

    You can make it with just skimmed milk and frozen fruit. I do it all the time. I would suggest a splash of honey though for an extra flavour and sweetness.
    I always have frozen fruit in the freezer ready for a smoothie and you DONT need yoghurt for thickness. Using the fruits, and a small amount of banana will give you all the thickness and flavour you need. Enjoy.
    My fave fruits are, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mango, banana, peach and plum, but ANY fruit can be turned into a smoothie with the right blend 🙂
