There are many ways to make smoothies, but sometimes we don’t know the product or the ingredients well enough and we make mistakes which means it doesn’t turn out the way we want it to. In this post we give you some tips that you should keep in mind. Pay attention because these are some mistakes to avoid when making your smoothie.
Don’t think it’s boring and don’t let it get monotonous.
If you get bored of always having the same smoothie, try different ones! The combinations are endless, the variety goes as far as your creativity. If you’re short of ideas, you can take a look at the Life Smoothies catalogue, you definitely won’t get bored of any of these. And you don’t always have to drink it as a liquid, you can also freeze it and enjoy it as an ice cream in the shape you want by using different moulds.
Fruit and ice? Go for frozen fruit.
Big mistake! Some people think that using fresh fruit and a little ice will give your smoothie the same feel and texture as freezing the fruit. This is one of the most common mistakes made. If ice is used instead of frozen fruit, some of the nutrients and minerals in the fruit pieces can get diluted. That’s why we give you the exact amounts of each ingredient in each sachet, so you only have to add the minimum amount of extra liquid and enjoy a great smoothie. Life Smoothies fruit is picked and frozen when it is perfectly ripe.
Too much sugar
A lot of people tend to add too much sugar to their smoothies, offsetting any health benefit of the smoothie. Leave it out. Life Smoothie products do not contain added sugars, preservatives or colourants, so you can enjoy a natural drink whenever you want.
Too many ingredients
We said above that you should let your imagination run wild, but don’t get too carried away. A bad combination of fruits or too many ingredients can ruin the smoothie. With Life Smoothies you won’t have that problem, because we have already prepared the best combinations for you in the right balance, so that you can enjoy them wherever you want or serve them in your business.
There’s more to life than fruit
People don’t live on fruit alone, and smoothies are not just about fruit. Also try adding vegetables and enjoy the result. At Life Smoothies we have our Green Machine, where we mix broccoli, spinach, celery, banana, mango and pineapple.
You can also add nuts and seeds as a topping.
BONUS: Wash the blender in the sink
Cleaning the blender is always a challenge, no matter how big or small it is. Today we share with you a useful tip so that you can clean it quickly without wasting time. Fill it about halfway with warm water, add a little bit of soap, turn it on for a few seconds and that’s it! Rinse it out and your blender will be ready to use again.
