Everyone says making smoothies is so easy, so what could actually go wrong? There are still some things that could go wrong.keep reading for the most common smoothie mistakes
If your smoothie is too watery, simply add more fruit (the best option would be bananas or frozen fruit), nut butter or oats.
If it lacks creaminess, you can add some nut butter, oatmeal, avocado or banana. On the other hand, if your smoothie is too thick, add some non-dairy milk, such as oatmeal, coconut, hazelnut or almond. Remember that this might change its flavor, so always add the liquids in small amounts.
In case you accidentally made your green smoothie taste almost too healthy, you should add more milk, such as for example hazelnut, a frozen banana or some maple syrup.
Even if your smoothie is too tasteless, you can still save it – add a splash of natural fruit juice for acid taste, Greek yogurt for tangy taste, or dates or maple syrup for sweetness. You can also add spices or grated ginger to add more flavor.
If the smoothie is not blended enough, you might not be adding the ingredients to your blender in the correct order. You should add your liquids first, which will get the blade turning smoothly. Start blending on slow speed and then gradually increasing the speed.
Other smoothie mistakes that you should also consider is, at which time of the day you should drink your smoothie. The most recommended choice would be in the morning, as drinking a smoothie in the evening could cause gas and/or bloating.
Additionally, as fruits are still packed with sugars, they might not be the best thing to eat before going to bed. But even if you decide to drink a smoothie for dinner, this could still not be considered as an unhealthy choice.
