I would like to make this recipe

* 8 oz. chocolate soy milk

* 4 oz. strawberries

* 4 oz. bananas

* Ice

Can I use fresh strawberries? If I do, should I put them in the freezer first?

How much ice should I use? And what kind of time/setting should I use for the blender?

I always make my smoothies in my magic bullet. I use frozen fruit, that way I do not need to add ice to make it smoothie consistancy.

Go for it!

If you'd like it to be thicker, be sure to add the ice (or some yoghurt would do the trick!). Just add a couple of ice cubes at a time until it's slightly thickened.

So if I froze my strawberries and bananas, I wouldn't have to add ice?

I'm new to freezing fruit,
so how long should I leave them in the freezer?

Would a handful do the trick?

Thanks guys!

It turned out great!

I used 4 oz of fresh strawberries I threw in the freezer earlier, about half a cup of ice, 8 oz of soy chocolate, and a medium sized banana.

The only thing I might do different next time is use more strawberries and a little less banana.

If you like smoothies, you should definitely give this one a try.

Success!
