How to make smoothies as good as the ones at Smoothie King.

Step 1: The Supplies

In order to make the smoothie, you need some basic supplies.
-One bag of frozen mixed fruit: Peaches, Strawberries, Grapes, Pineapple, Mango, Cherries... anything that you would like in your smoothie. I used them all.
-One Blender
-Vanilla protein powder. It tastes the best, and adds a great flavor.
-Fruit juice: Mango, strawberry, papaya... it all tastes good.
To make Pina Colada, you need Pineapple Coconut Juice and frozen Pinapples.

Step 2: Putting the Fruit In

Make sure not to fill the blender with fruit, but 3/4 of the way, as not to break your blender.
Put in mostly mixed fruit, and maybe some exotic fruit to give it flavor.
Great Combinations-
-Everything
-Strawberry Kiwi
-Banana Mango (Banango)
-Strawberry Banana
-Peach Mango
-Pinapple Cocunut (Pina Colada)

Step 3: Putting the Juice and Protien Powder In

Fill the blender with juices mainly of the type of fruit you are putting in. ( I made mixed fruit, and used 3 juices.) Fill up with juices to around the surface of the frozen fruit, then (if you want to), add protein powder. I use about 1 cup, depending on how much smoothie there is.

Step 4: Blend It!

Blend your smoothie! You will know when it is done when all solid articles are blended and it all looks even. Make sure the protein powder is evenly distributed. If the smoothie comes out too solid, put in water and re-blend for about 10 seconds. If it is too liquidly, put in more frozen fruit and blend for about 15 seconds.

Step 5: Serving

If you find that if you enjoy the smoothie, other people probably will too. You will have people begging for it it is so good. Pack it in a thermos and freeze for lunch the next day, or serve it at a party. Also try new combinations of fruit. Tell me any good new ones, I'd like to know. If yours aren't coming out good, comment me. If they are, tell me anyways.
would it ruin it if i added.. mabye.... some energy drink instead of protein mix? ;)
Yeah sorry about that the protein is just if you're trying to gain some muscle, that's all. But the powder I have adds a great vanilla flavor, and helps fill me up. But if you want energy, I suppose adding an energy boost would be a good idea. <br />

i love smoothies... =D<br/>
At a good smoothie place in CA i saw them do all the same except for the protein powder was replaced with plain yogurt... It makes it thicker and i guess healthier but don't quote me on that.
is it true that if you eat to much protine, over a period of time your kidney (or liver?), would get damaged?? (i mean youd have to eat crap load of it, just want to know if that was true :-0?) anyway cool instructable, shakes, and smoothies are great :-------D<br/>
I heard bodybuilders can have stinky prolems with consuming tons of protien, but not sure about kidney or liver damage.
lol 'stinky problems?' what does that mean :-P? fart, sweat, #2, breath, what??
I think when you eat way to much protien it makes some seriously stanky farts
...thats awesome!!!! :-D
I need to eat lots of protein when my friends come over...
I make my smoothies with frozen fruit include blueberries, red raspberries and cherries. I also add an ounce of cherry juice concentrate. I can also make it to taste with my own mixes. Try it out. The cherry juice is hard to find but I get mine from Traverse Bay Farms www.traversebayfarms.com
That sounds good...next time I'm at the store ill pick them up. I'm pretty sure it sells the cherry concentrate.
yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
