How to be a smoothie pro in easy steps
These 5 smoothie hacks will put you on the way to becoming a professional smoothie operator.
It might generally look quite hard to make a smoothie especially when it is intended to be really tasty, nutritious and efficient but it isn’t that hard.
These are the top 5 smoothie hacks.
1. Use an ice cube tray for milk instead of water
Ice mostly waters down the smoothie so it only makes sense that instead of using ice from water, freeze the liquid you’ll use for your smoothies like Coconut milk, Soymilk or cashew milk.
When you’re ready to blend, simply halve the amount of liquid you’d use, then pop in a few “milk cubes” to add flavour and to give your smoothie a nice frosty texture.
2. Make smoothie freezer packs
Bag everything up in smoothie batches for efficiency!
You can make a month’s worth of smoothies in an hour. 3-Ingredient Smoothie Freezer Packs are also a great way to make smoothies quick and painless.
3. Blend fruits about to go bad
Have a banana that’s about to go bad and you won’t have a chance to use? Put it in a smoothie to add fibre and minimize kitchen waste.
Browning bananas? Throw them into the blender with your greens and soymilk, or pop them in the freezer for a great smoothie thickener later.
4. Don’t forget the veggies
Add flavour and nutrients without as much sugar (or as many calories) by experimenting with veggie smoothies. You can even use frozen vegetables or simply add some greens, carrot juice or bell peppers to a fruit smoothie.
5. Make smoothie pops
Use fruits and vegetables of your choice to make a satisfying and nutritious treat for sunny days. Or for when you don’t feel like making a smoothie from scratch.
