You can create your own smoothie by using four basic
building blocks :
with the liquids
You should start off
with between 1 - 2 cups of a liquid such as soy
milk. This is superior to regular milk and is a
great source of protein, calcium, and generally
lasts much longer than dairy milk and has no lactose
or cholesterol. You could also use any type of fruit
juice, but beware of added sugar. Therefore we
recommend soy milk
Optional you can add powder
Depending on your
dietary habits you can help increase your protein
intake by adding a half to a whole scoop of any
popular protein powder mix. We recommend one without
aspartame. There are many popular brands that come
in different flavors and vanilla blends right in
with the taste of most fruits.
The fruits & vegetables
with your own favorite fruits and vegetables you
will start to realize which fruits contribute to the
taste and texture of the smoothie in ways that you
like. Testing new combinations should be a fun,
creative, and ongoing process. Think of it as
walking the path toward smoothie excellence.
Adding the ice
If you have more
fresh fruit than frozen you may want to add a few
extra ice cubes to give the smoothie a cooler
temperature and better texture. Mixing ice with
fruit makes the smoothie cool, delicious, and
The blending part
You will want to
blend the ingredients until the liquid is
circulating for at least 5 to 10 seconds. By this we
mean that the contents are freely circulating. The
liquid at the top should be swirling and diffusing
back down to the bottom.
So don't stop to soon with
Make sure you don't have too much in your jar or
your blender will never achieve proper circulation.
You will need to put in just enough so your blender
can achieve proper liquid circulation in about app.
45 seconds. Check first if your blender can handle
frozen or large uncut fruit pieces!!!
