smoothies/vitamix
Posted Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 11:30 PM

I am trying to make a "green" smoothie in my vitamix using frozen greens, frozen fruit and some water. It keeps coming out like sherbet! Any idea what I am doing wrong? Any great green smoothie vitamix recipes that I can follow. Not sure if I am blending too long or not long enough. Thanks!!!!!!

I don't have a Vitamix (yet) but do make smoothies in my 1984 Osterizer blender Smile

I always thaw my fruit/veg first. Maybe the sherbet consistency is from the frozen food. Are you adding enough water/nut milk?

I think you are right. I am using all frozen vegetables and fruit and I usually don't thaw them first. Maybe that will help. Thanks !

I use one thing frozen and the rest fresh. Frozen banana seems to be my choice most of the time. If it is too thick a few things can be added.. cooled green tea, water, or any milk alternative.
