I make frozen fruit smoothies at least once a week – they’re delicious, healthy and the perfect way to use up all those odds and ends of fruit in my freezer!

I don’t know about you, but here in California it’s been hot, hot, hot! I whipped up some of these frozen fruit smoothies for my kids to ward off the heat. They’re a quick and easy snack, and full of icy cold fruit to help keep you cool.


I personally have a blender meant just for smoothies but it’s not necessary; any blending machine will work. Toss your blend of frozen fruit, juice, and Greek yogurt into the blender and mix until smooth. I chose to use blueberries, cherries, raspberries, and mango for a tart, yet sweet, blend of fruits.

This recipe makes two servings but can easily be adjusted to make only one serving, or more servings, whatever you desire. Simply cut the recipe in half for one serving. If you double the amount of ingredients called for, remember that it will bump it to four servings since this is enough to make two servings. Each serving is around 16 ounces each.

There are a lot of great juices out there that would work well in your fruit smoothie. I typically use apple juice because it’s readily available and a neutral flavor base, but other great options are

  • White grape juice
  • Orange juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Cranberry juice

You can even use milk, almond milk or coconut milk instead of juice for your smoothie.

I typically use whatever odds and ends of fruit I happen to have in my freezer. You can really mix and match however you like here, just use the same quantity of the fruits listed in the recipe. Some other great fruit options to use are

  • Banana
  • Pineapple
  • Peaches
  • Strawberries

Although smoothies are sweet, making it seem like they’re a treat more than a health benefit, they actually full of nutrients. A fruit smoothie contains large amounts of folate. vitamin C, and potassium. Most fruits are a great source for these nutrients and one fruit smoothie can contain up to 2-3 servings of fruit. The Greek yogurt also adds a good dose of protein, which help keep you full for longer.


If you want to make a frozen fruit smoothie and don’t have any frozen fruit on hand, add ice to your mixture. If you don’t add frozen fruit or ice, your smoothie won’t be thick and frosty. If you don’t mind this, then you’ll be fine to continue. I highly recommend using frozen fruit because it tends to blend better than straight ice. It’s not pleasant to bite down on chunks of ice in a smoothie!

This fruit smoothie recipe is so easy that we make them most days during the hot weather. You won’t hear me complaining. They’re a lot healthier than ice cream and if making them keeps the want for ice cream at bay, I’m all for it!

    I make a lot of frozen fruit smoothies for myself and the kids. There is always a different mix of glass sizes wanted and I tended to always make too much and they don’t keep well. I now just put all the ingredients in each of the cups and fill in with the liquid to account for the air space. Then dump them into the ninja blender. It always results in exactly full cups and no waste.
    Also I like the ninja so much better than my old bottom blade blender that used to take forever.

    I just recently bought a nutribullet. I used this as my first smoothie recipe and it tastes exactly like the one I always get from a smoothie shop! I used apple juice, mixed frozen berries, chia seeds and Greek yogurt and it tastes amazing!

  4. How about using a scoop of protein powder to replace the yogurt? I have a plant based vanilla protein powder

    Just made this with what I had on hand: oat milk, greek yogurt, and frozen blueberries & raspberries. I only used 1/2 cup of the yogurt. Turned out really tasty! Thank you for the recipe!

  6. Tad bit too much yogurt for me so I added extra fruit and juice to counterbalance. I did Apple and pineapple juice, as well as frozen pineapple and raspberry and it was delicious. Thank you !

    This is so good! Instead of apple juice I used cran-pomegranate juice, and my frozen fruits were blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.

      1. Just made this for my family and we all loved it. I used a mix of assorted frozen fruit , fresh blackberries and fresh blueberries. Greek lactose free yogurt, half A.J. / half O.J. turned out fantastic. Thank you for this recipe.
