Blender Suitability

The main reason why not all blenders work with this recipe is because of the use of frozen fruit and ice.

Not all blenders can crush these 2 ingredients without plenty of liquid. As you can see based on the images, this alcohol smoothie is quite thick.

Nevertheless, most blenders do work with this smoothie:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender x

Optional Add-Ins / Variations Of This Drink

There are some variations of this alcoholic drink you can make in case you have slightly different taste preferences.

Some tested variations you could try include:

  • If you don’t like bananas, you can use mango instead, for a tropically flavored cocktail.
  • Instead of coconut water, you can use coconut milk for a more pina-colada-tasting alcohol smoothie.
  • You don’t need to use strawberries, you can substitute them for raspberries for example, or another berry of choice.
  • For an aromatic infusion, blend 1-2 fresh leaves of mint.

Recipe Tips:

  • Frozen Fruit Goes In First: Ice and the frozen berries should go in the blender first so that they are close to the blades.
  • Start Blending at a Lower Speed: This allows for the blades to cut through the ice cubes and frozen berries first. After 30 seconds, increase the speed.
  • Do Not Over-Blend: Blending for 2-3 minutes is more than enough. You want icy almost slushy-like consistency.

I suggest that you avoid blending the smoothie and store it for later. The smoothie contains ice and frozen fruit, which means as it the frozen ingredients melt (Even in the fridge) the texture will change. You can, however, prep the ingredients ahead of time, and simply throw everything in the blender when you are ready.
