How to Make a Fruit Smoothie
Making a fruit smoothie is as simple as tossing ingredients in a blender and letting it rip, but we want to make sure you succeed every time, choices of fruits are optional, What’s the best liquid for making smoothies?
We like to use (unsweetened) milk of choice. If you’re a fan of coconut milk, Greek yogurt,use it. Like cow’s milk? Go for it. A fan of almond milk? Cool. Use whatever milk you like in your smoothies—you can’t go wrong. I just recommend you stick to unsweetened and unflavored versions. That gives you the most control over the smoothie. so here’s our exact process:
Add liquid to your blender. i typically use unsweetened almond milk, but you could use any other kind of milk, fruit juice, or even water.
Add in any fibrous foods. If you are adding in spinach or other greens, this is the time to toss them in.
Add in your frozen fruits and vegetables. I like to keep at least frozen bananas and frozen strawberries on hand for smoothie making. Any frozen fruit works!
Add any fresh fruits or veggies you’d like to use. Here is where you’ll toss in fresh strawberries Top it off with your favorite nutrition mix-ins. Add protein powder, collagen, chia seeds, turmeric—whatever you’d like to boost the nutrition of the smoothie, it makes you have an Healthier smoothie.
Blend away! I like to start my blender on low and then slowly ramp up to full speed. This makes sure everything is mixed well and the blades don’t get stuck. I blend until the smoothie looks silky, and then I pour and enjoy. would you like to add sweetener? my recommendation for you is to blend up all your fruits for a baseline sweetness.(depending on your taste-buds add in honey,maple syrup to taste,or use natural pitted medgool dates)
ice cubes in smoothie is also optional,preferably blend two cubes of ice into the smoothie to achieve a creamy taste.
