Best blender to use
Smoothie is all about blending frozen fruit. If you are a smoothie person you know very well that a good blender is very important to make good smooth creamy smoothie. I’ve gone through a share of my blender trying to make smoothies and most of it did fail, with bits and pieces of frozen fruits in my smoothie. I hate it. I recommend *Ninja Professional Blender. This one blends ice too, yay!
DEFINITELY FROZEN! To help you achieve a thick, creamy consistency ALWAYS use frozen fruits/berries. Using fresh berries in this recipe will give you berry juice and not smoothie.
To any smoothie add some frozen bananas as well. It will help add the required sweetness. Banana also helps as thickening agent to the smoothie
Making protein rich smoothie
You can add protein powder to your smoothie to make it protein rich. After all you want to eat breakfast that is filling and satisfying. Protein helps you keep full until the next meal.
Adding extra kick of flavors to the smoothie makes it interesting. A spoonful of cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, vanilla extract.
