General Smoothie-Making Tips

Smoothies are supposed to be fun. Use these recipes as a starting point for developing your own creations. Here are some additional tips to keep in mind as you blend.

  • Experiment: Sample your smoothie before you pour it into your glass. Add a little more of whatever you think it needs.
  • Get a good blender: A high-speed, high-powered blender will help you avoid fruit lumps and ice cube chunks.
  • Keep it simple: A basic smoothie includes fruit, liquid or yogurt, and ice. All you need to do is dump all the ingredients in your blender and blend on high until it's smooth.
  • Switch up sweeteners: Most of these smoothies call for a little bit of honey (about a tablespoon), but you can also use maple syrup or plain sugar. If you skip the sweetener altogether you'll save about 60 calories per smoothie. Stevia and sucralose also work fine as honey substitutes but use less than 1 tablespoon per smoothie.
  • Try different kinds of milk: You can use nut milk, soy milk, or rice milk instead of cow's milk.
  • Use frozen fruit: If you have time, freeze your fruit before making your smoothies. Otherwise, add an extra ice cube or two.
