Smoothies are an excellent way to consume our daily fruits and veggies, so make sure you are using these tips to get the most out of your blender
Nothing’s better than a great smoothie.
Chock full of nutrients and vitamins, smoothies are thick and tasty, and are a great meal replacement option. Nearly all foods can be blended, from fruits and nuts to vegetables. And it doesn’t matter if you have a top-of-the-line Vitamix blender or an immersion blender. However, some common mistakes can compromise the performance or taste of your drink.
Follow these tips for tasty and healthy smoothies:
1. Clean Your Blender Thoroughly
The best way to clean your blender is not with a sponge, but with your blender itself. Put some water in your blender and a few drops of dish soap, then turn on your blender for 30-60 seconds. This will help to remove the little pieces of vegetables, fruits, or seeds that may be trapped and ensure that what you blended for breakfast today doesn’t get into your smoothie tomorrow.
