Hints and Tips for Making Smoothies
“Freeze your smoothie to make it thicker”
Smoothies are really easy to make, but there are some tricks of the trade that will make your smoothie even better.
You can make your smoothie stay colder and thicker by freezing your fruit beforehand.
When freezing larger fruits such as bananas or melons you should chop them into pieces before freezing. To prevent the pieces freezing into one big lump, you should spread the pieces on a plate or baking sheet while in the freezer.
Another good tip is too add extra ice cubes to your smoothie recipe if your smoothies are coming out thinner than you would like.
To help prevent liquids from binding to frozen fruit when blending, add the liquids to the blender first.
You can also freeze a smoothie and thaw it out when you want it. You'll need to allow some space in the container because your smoothie will expand when freezing.
