Tips : SMOOTHIE AND SHAKE

A smoothie is basically a blended fruit drink.
The best-tasting smoothies are made from fruit that is fresh or frozen, and not canned.All smoothies begin with a liquid base. This can be orange juice, milk or another liquid.You can make a frostier drink by freezing fresh fruit before making a smoothie.Smoothies are best when they're fresh out of the blender, but they can be frozen the night before, as well just remove the smoothie from the freezer about an hour before drinking.You can replace a meal with a smoothie or shake by adding a scoop of high-quality protein powder and a tbsp. of high quality olive or flax oil.

Tips : MAKING THE PERFECT SMOOTHIE

Put the fruit in the blender first. Make sure that the items are smaller than a golf ball so they will blend completely. Add the liquid ingredients next.Fasten the lid and press the start button. Use high speed for about 20-30 seconds.Stop the blender and check to see if the ingredients are well blended. Sometimes the frozen fruit will jam under the blade. If there is jammed fruit, use a spatula to push the fruit, and blend again.Once the mixture is evenly blended, slowly add two ice cubes through the opening of the blender lid. Keep adding one or two ice cubes at a time until the blender sounds smooth instead of gravelly. If your blender is not strong enough to blend ice cubes, omit the ice and substitute just enough ice cold water so that the shake will have a milkshake consistency.If the shake/smoothie is too thin, add more fruit or ice. If it’s too thick, add more liquid.

Remove the large pits from fruits like peaches and nectarines, etc. Peel all fruits and vegetables that are not organically grown (To clean the chemical residues). While most skins of organically grown fruits and vegetables may be left on, with the exception of waxed produce, (the skins of pineapples, kiwis, oranges, grapefruits and papaya should be removed).Choose fresh ripe produce. Rubbery vegetables, bruised fruit, wilted greens and over or under-ripe fruits will produce juices that are neither tasty nor healthful.Cut the fruits or vegetables into pieces that will fit into the mouth of your juice machine. Turn the juice machine on and push the pieces through the mouth of the juicer. As you juice, pulp…
