Fruit Juice Smoothie Require a Juicer?

fruit juice smoothieDo You Need a Juicer to Make a Fruit Juice Smoothie?

I want to get in the habit of making my own fruit juice smoothie at home but I don’t have a juicer nor do I know anything about purchasing one.   Is there any way to make a fruit juice smoothie without a juicer?

A Fruit Juice Smoothie Doesn’t Need a Juicer

The answer to this one is simple.  No.

You can use a juicer to make juice, especially specialty juices.  Think things like carrot juice, beet juice, cabbage juice, etc.  Juicers do a great job of extracting the juice from what might otherwise be considered “non-juicy” vegetables.

But if you are looking to make a Fruit Juice Smoothie, all you need is:

  • Fruit juice — you can use canned, frozen, or fresh squeezed
  • A base — normally ice cream, yogurt, frozen bananas, or frozen yogurt
  • Ice cubes — alternatively, you could freeze the fruit juice into cubes

Blend the ingredients in a blender, and you should be good to go!

Secrets to A Frozen Mixed Fruit Smoothie

Making a smoothie from frozen fruit makes a lot of sense.  In fact, one of the best secrets for making a thick fruit smoothie is to start with frozen fruit.

But if you try to just put a bunch of frozen fruit into a blender in hopes of making a smoothie, you’ll be a bit disappointed.  You’ll end up with a lot of noise, big chucks of frozen fruit, and not so much ‘smooth’.

The secret to making a good frozen mixed fruit smoothie is to add some liquid to the mix.  If you are starting with a lot of frozen fruit, you’ll most likely want to start with some milk.  You may also find it easier to blend if you thaw about a cup of the frozen fruit before you start.

Here’s a recipe I’d suggest:

Frozen Mixed Fruit Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen mixed fruit, thawed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 fresh banana, 1″ chunks
  • 1 cup frozen mixed fruit, frozen

Place the thawed fruit, milk, and banana chunks into the blender, then ‘pulse’ blend a few times until fruit and milk are well mixed.  Increase the speed to high, and feed the frozen fruit through the opening in the top of the blender, a few pieces at a time.  Blend until smooth.

Can I Make My Fruit Smoothie in My Food Processor?

food processorI want to make a smoothie with ice, frozen fruit, and yogurt, but I only have a food processor. Can I do that with a processor, since I don’t have a blender? Or will it not work?

Have You Made a Smoothie in a Food Processor?

Normally, fruit smoothies are made in a blender. I’ve never tried it any other way. If you have used a processor to make a fruit smoothie before, successful or not, I’d love your feedback!
