Add ingredients to blender container in the order recommended for the type of blender you are using (see intro at the beginning of this section).

For high-powered blenders, make sure the machine is on the lowest speed setting before you begin. Then, slowly increase the speed to the highest setting. (If your machine has a pre-programmed smoothie option, use that instead).

For regular blenders, use different speeds and the pulse button to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
