While this sweetheart smoothie recipe calls for frozen raspberries and strawberries, do not worry if you cannot find them. You can still use frozen raspberries and strawberries and the smoothie will still taste great. This applies for other fruits that you will decide to use in this recipe. The only issue is that the texture of the smoothie that you will prepare using frozen fruits will be different from the texture of the smoothie prepared with fresh fruits. But you can still prepare the smoothie and refrigerate it sometime before taking it if you want it to have an icy or frozen texture.
For the best results, you should use a powerful blender. There are some blenders that have a high speed setting and a low speed setting. In that case, you will need to use the high speed setting for the best results when making the smoothie.
