The smoothie is quite thick. Lower-speed blenders struggle to blend thick smoothies.

If you do use a lower-speed blender, you will need to use a lot more liquid.

Strawberry Spinach Smoothie FAQs:

Can I Use Fresh Berries Instead of Frozen in This Smoothie?

Yes, you can use fresh strawberries and raspberries. Fresh berries will result in a less icy texture. If you prefer a colder thicker smoothie, you can add a few ice cubes to achieve the desired consistency.

Is This Smoothie Gluten-Free and Vegan?

This smoothie is naturally vegan, using plant-based ingredients only. It is also gluten-free, provided that the oats used are certified gluten-free to avoid cross-contamination.

How Can I Store Leftover Smoothie?

Leftover smoothie can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. You may notice some separation, so just give it a quick stir or blend again before drinking.
