1st rule of smoothies: While orange peel is good for you too much orange peel leaves a bitter taste in the smoothie.
2nd Rule: Freeze fruit first. Then, you don’t have to add ice later.
3rd Rule: Avocado in a smoothie? NO F-ing Way. Tried it once in a place in Newport. Not myself, my (then) husband, son,or the oh so, vegetarian daughter could stand it. Blech.
4th Rule: Do not allow bird on counter unsupervised around fresh fruit. Before you know it she will have gotten into banana and cantaloupe (so far as I can tell I stopped her before going any further).
5th Rule: Smoothies always taste better COLD!
6th Rule: Use Coconut Milk. NOT Coconut Juice. They are very different. The first is rich the second just overly sweet.
7th Rule: Do NOT buy more fruit than you can cut, store, or blend in a couple of days.
8th Rule: Spell it right. No one wants to eat S-Moth-ies. Smoothies can be delicious.
I just have to keep at it to find the 9th rule: Which smoothie that would be (delish).
