But, before you dig into the recipes there are some great smoothie “rules” that you should stick to, to make sure your smoothies are always yummy:
Use a good blender
If you’re in the smoothie-making business, you should invest in a great blender. It’s worth the cash not to have to chew your smoothie. Working with an old blender is always frustrating to make a smoothie.
Use your (unsweetened) milk of choice
If you’re a fan of coconut milk, use it. Like cow’s milk? Go for it. A fan of almond milk? Cool. Use whatever milk you like to put in your smoothies, you can’t go wrong. Although, it is recommended to stick to unsweetened and unflavored versions.
Sweeten to taste
In all of the recipes they’ve used frozen banana as a base, and bananas vary in sweetness. The best recommendation is to blend up your smoothie without any added sweetener, then taste it. Add in honey or maple syrup to taste. Many times, you may not need to add anything. Another great natural option for sweetening: pitted Medjool dates. Throw in one or two of those bad boys and let the blender do it’s thing. You’d be amazed at how sweet your smoothie will be.
