 h1. Dear readers,
 The fruit-filled and waning days of summer are a great time for [/recipes/collections/Contributors/Catherine+Bennett+Dunster/Fruit+and+Yogurt+Smoothie?utmsource=NL20090902&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Smoothies&utmcampaign=Fruit smoothies]. You can tweak the list of ingredients all you want — yogurt or milk, juice or no juice, bananas or berries (or both). How about Italian prunes? Pluots? Grapes? 

 But one thing you shouldn't mess around with is the technique. That's right, blending smoothies may seem like the most straightforward thing ever, but if you've ever cursed your blender in frustration because it won't, well, blend, you might be ready for a little brush up.

 Hank Sawtelle offers a way to [/columns/askhank/blendingtips?utmsource=NL20090902&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=BlendingTips&utmcampaign=Fruit "simplify your liquifying"]  — and avoid the need to jam a wooden spoon into the blender jar every time you use it.
