  1. 1.
    Peel, pit, prep fruit of your choice. Freeze if desired.
  2. 2.
    Select a citrus to add for a high note. Lemon, lime, blood orange, etc!
  3. 3.
    Select a fresh herb to blend in for a low note. Mint, basil, tarragon, cilantro, etc!
  4. 4.
    Have a few pinches of sea salt on hand for a sexy note.
  5. 5.

    Once you've got your desired consistency, add in a handful of the fresh herbs and blend again. Don't blend long—just until the leaves become flecks.
