Why Can’t My Blender Chop Up Frozen Strawberries?

Q: I got out our old Cuisinart blender yesterday when my fiance said she wanted a strawberry smoothie. I put in milk and yogurt and some whole frozen strawberries. As soon as I turned it on, an air pocket formed around the blade and nothing was blending.

Do you think I need a different blender, or do I maybe need to buy sliced frozen strawberries? Or fresh strawberries? The blender has no problem with ice.

We ended up making a strawberry daiquiri instead but the strawberries never did get completely chopped up.

Editor: Dave, we would recommend chopping up those frozen strawberries; depending on the model of your blender, it just may not be strong enough to handle big, solid chunks like whole strawberries.

Readers, any tips or ideas for Dave?
