Do You Need Ice in a Smoothie?
No! A cool smoothie tastes great on a hot day, but you can make a smoothie at room temperature with whatever ingredients you like.
If you just can't resist a cool strawberry banana smoothie, remember that you can use frozen fruit. Strawberries are easy to freeze and keep well. Frozen bananas make good smoothies if you prepare them properly—peel them first and cut into small slices before freezing.
We've had good luck with frozen fruit juices too.
