Can you put frozen fruit in a blender?

Many people made the mistake of putting frozen fruit in a blender that destroys your blender in form of cracking sharp blades.

My recommendation is that put the frozen fruit in natural temperature water and then put them into the blender.

Most people say that, Can I put frozen fruit in a blender? It really depends on the type of blender you have. I have enjoyed cheap blenders from K-Mart and Target that do not cope well with frozen ingredients AT ALL.

A couple of years ago I maintained a small cafe and we used to do healthy frozen fruit sorbets with Optimum/Froothie blenders and they were marvelous.

Consumers raved about it…we’d also add stuff like Goji Berries, Cacao Powder, Matcha Powder, and other stuff in there to spice it up. Super powerful, smooth, and flavorful.

Blender power will decide how big the pieces can be(Weaker blenders will only blend smaller frozen fruits or smaller pieces). Typically it is best to break down large fruits like bananas into shorter pieces before freezing them.

Just like you can put ice in a blender to make smoothies or mixed drinks, the blender will blend the fruit just fine even though it’s frozen.

Can you blend frozen fruit in a blender? Why not! A few foods that could spell blender disaster-frozen fruit is one of them.

It can produce sharp blades to crack and break. You need to make sure the blender is designed for frozen fruit use.


Is it safe to put frozen fruit in a blender?

Yes, I do it all the time but I would let it get a bit soft first.

Don’t put fully frozen fruits in the blender. It can cause lumpy smoothies and, in some cases, it can cause the sharp blades to crack and break.

Leave frozen fruits out in the fridge to thaw or put them in a Ziploc bag and thaw in a bowl of water before blending.

Can I put frozen fruit in a food processor?

That’s the essence of a good, cold smoothie. The trick is, don’t use big chunks. It’s best to freeze the fruit into small bits and then process them.

It supports the blades from having to work too hard and be over-stressed. It also means you’ll get a smoother, more consistent final result.

If you are processing fruit with long stringy fruits (e.g. pineapple), then cut the chunks across the fibers). It also helps if you let the frozen fruit thaw just a bit before starting the processing.

Tip for Success: To get the most even chop from your food processor, you may have to scrape down the sides of the bowl now and then to reincorporate larger chunks of food that can’t be reached by the blade.
