Tips and Tricks
Add a Banana: Banana add creaminess to the smoothie and a natural sweetness that complements the tartness of the berries. So try not to skip it.
Balance Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness to your liking. You might not need additional sweeteners if your berries are naturally sweet, but a touch of maple syrup can enhance the overall flavour.
Liquid Consistency: Adjust the milk to get the required consistency.
Too thick: add more milk to thin the smoothie down.
Too thin: add a banana to thicken the smoothie.
Avoid using ice cubes as they alter the texture of the smoothie. Instead, opt for frozen berries to make a smoothie that's thick and extra refreshing. Frozen fruits help to get a thick and creamy smoothie. Use a food processor or a powerful high speed blender that can handle frozen fruits.
Of course, you but it is essential to choose the right yogurt. Adding greek yogurt gives a creamy texture and boosts protein, while plain yogurt lets the natural sweetness of the berries stand out.
To control the smoothie's thickness, you might need to decrease the amount of milk. Unlike Greek yogurt, plain yogurt is not thick, and its liquid content affected the smoothie's consistency.
