~How to make a 'Green Smoothie' smooth~
Today's smoothie was, in my opinion, super tasty! It was definitely a healthy boost. I made this smoothie in attempt to make my wife drink it down with the same excited enthusiasm that I have when I drink the smoothies. When preparing the smoothies if you have a 'texture' problem here are a few hints to make your smoothies much more smooth-ie:)
The first thing you want to do is set aside the ingredients that are hardest to blend or puree. The usual ingredients that are a bit harder are; spinach, kale, carrots, etc. The best way to get these nice and smooth is to put them in first with just the water. Let these blend on a very high setting for about a full minute. You may need to stop it for a bit and scrape the sides. Don't be afraid to add more water if the ingredients aren't becoming pureed. Other ingredients such as berries, bananas, the ice cubes, peanut butter, yogurt, and other veggies won't be as big of a problem. As soon you get the tough ingredients all blended together and smooth throw in the rest of your ingredients, blend them for a good 30 second, and you'll be set. There are a lot of recipes on the blog so check them out and lemme know what you think.
Go get em! Yeah Buddy!
