Tips for making the perfect morning smoothie
- Add the liquid to the blender first. Then add your fruits, veggies, and other ingredients on top. This will help your blender blades move easier instead of getting stuck on solids.
- Blend veggies with liquids first. This helps ensure that the veggie easily gets pureed and is nice and smooth. Then add the fruit and other ingredients to the smoothie and blend again! This will help you to not end up with an unexpected chunk of veggie in a sip of smoothie. This is especially helpful if you don’t have a high-speed blender!
- Add water and/or ice to achieve desired consistency. Some people like their smoothies thicker. Others like they straw-friendly. Add water and ice and reblend your morning smoothie to tick whatever boxes you look for in smoothie consistency!
