There's a big difference between labels that read "Naturally Delicious" and "All-Natural". Using a concentrate like Dr. Smoothie will ensure flavor consistency, portion control and will be less expensive than using fresh or frozen fruit.

Q. What are the advantages of adding additional ingredients to my smoothie concentrate?
A. Higher revenues can be achieved by adding Dr. Smoothie Vanilla powders or fruit. A customized 'drink of the day' can be priced a dollar or more higher than a plain smoothie, for a small additional cost.

Q. How much additional fruit should I add to a drink?
A. We recommend adding 1 1/2 to 2 ounces of fruit to a 16 oz. drink. An average strawberry or one inch of banana weights about 1/2 oz. Use about 2 inches banana or more, depending on the size of the drink. Adding too much banana or other fruit will drown out the flavor of the concentrate that you are trying to enhance. Creativity is the key to keeping your smoothie menu fresh and exciting. Experiment mixing different flavors and adding Vanilla powders or fresh fruit. The combinations are endless.
