- Peel a banana and break it in half. Freeze in a ziplock bag. Thaw one of the halves slightly, about 10 seconds in the microwave, before adding to the blender. Your smoothie will have a richer, creamier texture.
- Agave syrup blends well, trumping sugar, honey and juice. Sugar doesn’t always dissolve. Honey doesn’t blend well with cold ingredients. Acidic juices may not blend well with dairy.
- Frozen berries, mango or pineapple keep well. I have a hard time using up fresh fruit before it spoils.
- Yogurt has “good” bacteria that’s important for your digestive system. Use a combination of yogurt and milk to get a drinkable consistency.
