A morning smoothie or one after the gym is a great treat. But not all smoothies are created equal.
It takes a special blend of liquid, fresh or frozen fruits and other ingredients to achieve a smooth, drinkable consistency.
For best results, always place liquid in the blender jar first, then add the remaining ingredients.
This helps keep the mixture moving in the blender, producing smoother results. Add more liquid if your mixture seems too thick and is not blending properly.
