This article will teach you how to make a perfect smoothie in a blender. During a hot summer Sunday, a lot of us will most likely prefer to have a great glass of homemade smoothie to cool our bodies and enjoy a great refreshing taste of the fruits and vegetables of the season. But then, even if it is not summer, smoothies are still one of the most favorite cold drinks that is delicious and healthy at that same time (depending on the ingredients used of course).
For weight watchers, you actually don’t have to deprive yourselves when you are craving for sweets. The smoothie can satisfy your sweet tooth without worrying too much about the calories and sugar that you may get from chocolate bars, cakes, desserts or even iced coffee! You can always make your very own smoothie at home, and take control of the actual ingredients you want to use inside. So, how to make a perfect smoothie in a blender? First and foremost, you will have to find a good blender machine that can evenly crush ice cubes and the fruits or vegetables evenly. You may want to get the ones that come with high powered motors in order to do that, though. But then, you don’t have to spend too much for a blender. There are so many different types of blenders out there that can give you the best creamy and smooth drink that you will always want every single day.
Once you already have the blender, then you may want to start with your ingredients. Again, our aim here is to avoid having too much sugar content on your drink, which you normally get from store bought products. And not to mention, you will also have a fair dose of chemicals that are really not necessary to the body, thus creating more adverse reaction after a prolonged consumption.
Anyway, to come up with a glass full of vitamins and minerals, you can try this refreshing smoothie recipe I always love to have when I come home after work.
- A cup of ice cubes
- Whole peach
- A banana
- Few strawberries (optional)
- Orange juice
How To Mix It:
Make sure that all of the fruits that you will be using are washed clean and they should be fresh as well. Go ahead and slice the fruits in smaller portions so that it will be easier to crush it while inside the blender. Put the rest of the ingredients inside the blender (fruits, orange juice, ice and honey). Blend it until there are no more lumps of ice inside.
Try not to use sugar for your smoothie if you are watching your weight. If you don’t like honey, you can just use other sweeteners of your choice.
