Use a Wide Variety of Ingredients
First of all, remember that there are a lot of different ingredients you can use. While the basic smoothie might contain fruit, yogurt, and milk, this is definitely not the only way to go. If you want a great winter smoothie that uses lots of superfoods, be versatile and use different ingredients. Mix it up with different fruit combinations, add leafy greens like kale or spinach, and go for some tasty herbs.
Get a Good Solid VS Liquid Ratio
When you are adding ingredients, keep in mind you need liquid to blend it up, otherwise, all you have is a thick soup. The liquid not only gives you a good smoothie consistency, but can double as flavor in the smoothie, and make it easier to blend. The trick is to not use too little, but not too much. It helps to add your solid ingredients, a little bit of liquid like juice or milk, then blends it up. Only add more liquid as needed.
Don’t Forget Added Flavor Components
Lastly, there are a lot of other ways to add flavor to a smoothie, aside from the fruits and veggies. Here are some different ideas:
