Making great tasting and healthy smoothies is a very simple and fun process, but how about making smoothie packs for daily usage? Preparing them up front on the weekend or when you have some free time would transform the entire preparation process into a very easy one.
There are a few things to consider before making smoothies and probably the most important is that you may include plenty of ingredients: fruits, vegetables, tofu, yogurt, fruit juice, milk, and pretty much anything else that you might think of. Long story short, a perfect smoothie is all about what you put in it.
Once you have selected the ingredients, make daily portions and place it in our Vacuvita bags. Apply vacuum and then store your bags in the refrigerator to ensure they stay fresh until the day you want to make a tasty smoothie. You can find vacuum bags in our SHOP.
Ingredients to liquefy your smoothie
One essential ingredient when it comes time to make a smoothie is the liquid or thinning agent. Liquids like fresh milk, cow’s milk, and soy milk are great options. These will offer you a dose of calcium, protein, and contains flavones. While fruit juice can also be used, they generally have a high sugar content and if your intention is to learn how to make smoothies that are nutritional, you would do better to skip the fruit juice and stick to soy milk instead.
Feel free to use fruits like strawberries, black berries, apples, kiwis, cherries, grapes, and vegetables like pumpkin, and raw spinach! These ingredients pack a powerful punch and are full of nutritional value.
This can be added in the form of crushed ice or ice cubes depending on the strength and capacity of your blender. Frozen fruits can also be used as a thickening agent but you will need a powerful blender that will purify them. This ingredient adds to the texture and consistency of the smoothie.
Make smoothies the way you like them
If you prefer your smoothies more liquefied, consider using less of the thickener and more of the milk or juice. If the smoothies turn out to be too thin, simply add more frozen fruits or ice. Keep in mind that you can always add some more fruit to it if you feel like your smoothie is too watered down. When you want a little more flavor, add some cinnamon or honey.
