Preparation

In a blender, combine fruit and honey or sugar and milk; purée until smooth. Add yogourt and pulse just until combined.

Freeze until solid, for 2 to 4 hours or up to 2 weeks.

Tips

If using paper cups, once the smoothies are frozen solid, transfer to an airtight container to make sure they don't get freezer burn.
