A great way to use fruit that might get too ripe or add fiber plus vitamins to your diet is with a smoothie. Often when a variety of fresh fruits are not available I use frozen fruit. I have learned that frozen peaches or mangoes are processed under-ripe and lack flavor. There is no formula for a smoothie. I have learned that a banana and a container of yogurt, and orange juice are the basic ingredients. Today my smoothie contained the banana, strawberries, mango, and the yogurt with orange juice added.
