How to Create a Thick or Thin Smoothie

 

We should quickly mention a few simple tips for making your smoothies come out the way you want them to.

One problem many new smoothie makers come across is that the smoothie doesn’t have the right texture – it’s either too thick, or too liquid. This is easily solved – all you have to do is add more thickener to a runny smoothie, or more liquid to a thick smoothie.

For example, if you followed a basic smoothie recipe and you decided the end result was too thick for your liking, all you would have to do is add some more juice or other liquid to the blender and re-blend the mix. Likewise, a smoothie can be made thicker by adding extra yogurt, ice or fruit. If the taste is too thin, you may want to ease off on the ice and add more fruit.

Follow these easy guidelines with any smoothie recipe you try.
