We test each and every recipe to ensure great flavor and consistency. That said, every blender is unique, and you might find that your smoothies are thicker than you'd like. There are a few tricks to help get that "smooth" texture.
- Chop your ingredients. If your blender isn't liquifying the ingredients all the way, help it out and chop your fruits and vegetables smaller before blending, so the blades don't have to do as much work.
- Blend in stages. Add the liquid base and the leafy greens to the smoothie and blend. Then add the chopped fruit, chopped vegetables, and boosters and blend. Lastly, add the ice and blend to make the smoothie nice and cold. This way your blenders blades are't trying to break down all of the ingredients at once and can fully liquify the smoothie.
- Don't be afraid to let your blender run for a full minute or two. Along with blending in stages make sure your are leaving your blender on long enough for the ingredient to fully liquify.
- Try adding some more water. More liquid will allow your ingredients to circulate through the blades more easily.
- Upgrade your blender. High powered blenders are engineered to create a smoother, creamier texture for smoothies.
