Easy 2-Minute 2-Ingredient Frozen Fruit Smoothie
For the last 5 days or so (I think they call that a week), I’ve been making a frozen fruit smoothie each morning. To drink, not to look at. Just in case you were wondering. 😂
The best part is that it’s a very easy smoothie to make. In fact, it’s a 2-minute fruit smoothie. Because mama doesn’t have time for a 100-step smoothie. Mama does, however, have time to create a simple fruit smoothie that makes her feel energized, healthy, and good for me.
For this particular smoothie, I use a frozen “mixed fruit” assortment of sliced peaches, seedless red grapes, pineapple chunks, and strawberries. BUT you can do any frozen fruit combo (mixed berries, strawberry banana) you like, which is the beauty of this recipe!
Why frozen fruit and not fresh fruit? There are many reasons.
- It creates an ice-cold smoothie.
- No ice cubes are needed.
- It’s easier to make.
But here’s the thing. You gotta have a good blender to make a good smoothie. If not, you’re going to get frustrated with frozen fruit stuck in the blades and the process will surely take more than two minutes.
So, do yourself a smoothie favor by purchasing a new blender if you don’t have one currently capable. I have the “Ninja Professional Countertop Blender with 1100-Watt Base, 72oz Total Crushing Pitcher and (2) 16oz Cups for Frozen Drinks and Smoothies (BL660).”
This is a blender that you can use for ANY recipe and in an efficient manner. The cup additions make smoothie-marking a breeze, too. Easy clean-up, too, since it’s all done in one vessel.
I never thought I’d write the word “vessel” in a recipe post, but here we are. 😬
Anyway…Ninja also has a smoothie-only blender, which could be a great option, too.
Okay, now that we’ve had “the talk” (about blenders), let’s get onto the smoothie recipe.
I also like almond milk for my smoothies, but you could totally do another milk, like coconut milk (or coconut water), cow’s milk, or cashew milk. Almond milk, in my opinion, doesn’t have a strong taste (so you’re getting more fruit flavor) and is light.

- 6 oz-8oz frozen fruit per smoothie cup I buy a 12-16 oz bagged frozen fruit to have on hand for each smoothie, any solo or combination (see images for example)
- 6 oz-8oz almond milk or milk equivalent coconut milk, dairy milk, etc. - fill smoothie cup to fill line (see images for example)
- Fill blender or smoothie cup with frozen fruit (never go beyond the "fill" line on the cup)
- Add almond milk.
- Blend until desired thickness.
