A few tips to improve your smoothie taste

All smoothies are prepared in the same way, by placing the ingredients in a blender and mixing them, but you must pay attention to the order:

Liquids + frozen fruit and / or ice + cereals or nuts + fresh fruits at the end

In general, bananas go well with all the ingredients. If you are using fresh fruit, we recommend that you put in a frozen banana or at least one from the fridge.

If you put ice in the smoothie, you will get a perfect summer refreshment.

You can always add almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cocoa, chocolate, peanut butter – use your imagination!

Avoid the use of sugar, your goal is to create a healthy drink, and honey is the right choice!

If you want to make this healthy beverage your daily habit you should keep the blender at hand, in an accessible place. If you want your blender to last longer, wash it with lukewarm water after every use.
