Tips for good smoothies

As we continue to enjoy the summer, my smoothie intake increases. However, we all know how tedious it  can be if we want to have it everyday. I came up with a great way to save myself the hassle of chopping fruits every morning before, waking up extra early was no longer ‘exciting’. So here are my suggestions, which has worked so far. I hope you find it useful.

Chop fruits of choice overnight

Freeze fruits in zip lock freezer bags

These act like ice cubes

If you are short on time, make smoothies (different flavours for varieties) in advance using mason jars. They can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Or in a freezer for a month however, this is not ideal with glass jars. You don’t want to end up swallowing fragments of glass.

Add lemon juice to prevent discolouring if adding fruits such as bananas, avocados, apples and pears

Add old fashioned oats to make your smoothie more filling

Nut butter is a great addition due to its protein and energy content. 

If you run out of milk or juice, just add water. You will still end up with a delicious. This is a good, great idea if you don’t  like sugar or trying to cut it out

Like your smoothie really sweet? Just add a teaspoon of honey or any other liquid sweetner.

Happy smoothie making
