How to put frozen fruit in a blender

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

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.

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.

Yes, that’s basically what fruit sorbet is! People also eat frozen bananas dipped in chocolate (without the peel). You can consume frozen fruit without having to defrost it. These are deliciously eaten fresh from the freezer. Smoothies made with frozen fruit are delicious. Using it in ice cream recipes is also a good idea.
It tastes better for me, keep it on the outside fridge at room temperature. I did with strawberry and my teeth hurt so much you can if your teeth can handle it.

If you are discussing a ‘Nutra-bullet” type of machine then yes you can easily. I do it all the time in the summer and freeze my fruit (a wide variety) then when I want to have ice cream I take out the frozen fruit, using a heavy knife or cleaver, I cut the fruit into smaller pieces and put the remaining fruit back into the freezer. This turns into the most delicious ‘ice-cream.
