Tips for making perfect smoothies

From creamy matcha smoothie bowls to my favourite blueberry almond butter smoothie, you’re sure to find a smoothie recipe for you on SLF!

Here are my tips and tricks to making perfect smoothies every time:

  1. Always add a frozen element. Frozen fruit blends into a far more creamier texture than fresh fruit, which yields a thick and creamy smoothie.
  2. Blend the smoothie well. This ensures it is deliciously smooth and creamy. I love using my Vitamix.
  3. Add some interest! The best smoothies contain more than just fruit, whether its a spoonful of nut butter, a sprinkling of hemp seeds or indeed a dash of cinnamon.

FAQ

Can I use fresh berries instead of frozen?

I usually use the combination of a fresh banana with frozen berries in this smoothie (I’m terrible at remembering to freeze bananas) however you can use fresh berries and frozen banana if you prefer. Just make sure to include something frozen!

What order should I put ingredients in the blender for a smoothie?

Add the fresh fruit at the bottom of the blender so it’s closest to the blade, then top with your frozen fruit. This is because fresh fruit blends a lot easier than frozen.

Which berries can I use?

I love using frozen forest fruits in this recipe, but you could use strawberries or blueberries if you prefer.
