Keeping Smoothies Smooth: Insider Tips
The real secret to a perfect smoothie is your creativity. Work with different ingredients and flavorings, and be open to input. Friends, families and foodservice customers are always honest critics.
These tips can help you whip up smoothies destined for rave reviews.
• Brussels sprouts in smoothies work best when they’re shredded, but a powerful blender can handle chopped sprouts.
• Fresh fruits and berries sweeten green smoothies, and they also add color, texture and extra antioxidants.
• Build a smooth drink by starting with leafy greens, adding a liquid base and finishing with remaining ingredients.
• Be careful with blender speed so that it doesn’t build up heat that can compromise smoothie nutrients.
• For really chilly smoothies, freeze ripe fruits ahead of time, and add to the mix without defrosting.
