Smoothie is perfect to start your day, fill your stomach as an afternoon snack, or as a substitute for your supper. Even better, there are many health benefits you can get by consuming smoothies. However, some people do not have a range of delicious smoothie recipes. Therefore, Kirei Living wants to be your preferred source of best-kept smoothie recipes. But if you want to play around with our smoothie recipe, that’s also great! Here are some tips from us to make your smoothie always tastes great:
Use a strong blender to make your smoothieAn old saying states “use the right tool for the right task” is correct. Making smoothies is all started with the tool. You won’t get a real smooth result and tasty smoothies if the tool is not powerful enough to crush all the ice and frozen fruits. However, powerful blenders yet still have setbacks. Most of them are not cheap. Moreover, they are usually static or not-convenient enough to be carried to your workplace. You can see our blender review here. So what should you do? Forget about having smoothie except in your home? The answer is No. Of course not. Because now you can have an excellent personal blender like our best-selling Blendmate One.
Pick the right smoothie ratiosFirst, start your smoothie with two cups of a liquid base. You can use milk, soya or almond milk, natural or flavored yogurt, fruit juice, low-fat coconut milk, coconut water, or plain water. Make sure to add the liquid before adding anything else. Next, add about three-quarters of a cup of the fruits. You may need to add more fruit or liquid, depending on the type of fruit you choose. And last, add a few ice cubes to the blender for a thick and frosty smoothie.
Use frozen fruitsDon’t forget to freeze your fruits if you want a frosty smoothie. Freezing the fruits will retain their nutritional value and flavor, and you don’t need to add ice if you freeze them already.
Add some extrasOnce you’ve done with your primary steps, you can add extra steps to the basic recipe –like cocoa powder, cinnamon, grated nutmeg, or vanilla essence –before blending it.
