Smoothies are a quick & easy way to get a healthy meal in.  If you check out my Weekly Menu you will see that we have a smoothie made with Shakeology for breakfast every day during the week.  It’s taken some time to get our smoothies just right.  That’s why I’m sharing some tips to help you learn how to make the best smoothies and fix some of the problems you may be running into.

5 Tips forThe Best Smoothies Infographic

  1. Add water or juice when a smoothie is too thick to thin it out
  2. Add ice or frozen fruit when a smoothie is watery to thicken it up
  3. Add banana or avocado to make a smoother smoothie
  4. Add milk to make a creamier smoothie that tastes like a milkshake
  5. Drink your smoothie with a straw to avoid sipping foam

We use a Magic Bullet to blend our smoothies.  I love how quick & easy it is to make and clean up.  I usually make my smoothie first, pour it in a cup, then make my husband’s which he drinks straight from the blender cup. They come with handy lids so he can take it to work with him without spilling.  I’ve even ordered extra blades, cups & lids so we’ve got clean ones ready to go and I don’t have to run the dishwasher every day.
