Smoothies have become very popular lately, not only are the tasty but you can jam in a bunch nutrients in just one glass. Knowing how to make a smoothie will save you time and hassle when you’re looking for a healthy choice on the go.
Tips for Making Smoothies
There are some keys when making smoothies, the biggest tip I can give you is to watch your ingredients for hidden calories, sugars or preservatives. I prefer to use ingredients that aren’t processed when I’m making a smoothie, that way I’m in control of what goes into my bodacious self.
When your fruits are just over-ripe or is bruised, toss them into the freezer and use them in smoothies. Using frozen fruits means you’ll need less liquid and ice.
Add in one “creamy” fruit such as banana, peach, pear, apple.
Water-rich fruits will make the smoothie runnier (melons, kiwi, grapes and citrus fruits).
For low-fat/low-calorie smoothies, use water as your base.
If you’re stuck when trying to think which fruits to use, just picture the juice aisle in the grocery store and gather ideas from juice combos you already like.
