Pro tips

  • Start with liquid first when blending; surrounded by water or juice, the blender blades can move freely. Next, add your greens, with chunks of fruit or vegetables going into the pitcher last.
  • If your blender has speeds, start it on low to break up big pieces of fruit, then work your way up to high speed.
