Smoothies are probably the easiest healthy meal to make, but you shouldn’t feel bad if they’re missing something to taste perfect. One small change can take your smoothies to a whole new level, and these quick fixes are just the thing you need if your smoothies aren’t as thick, creamy, or sweet as you want them to be.
Fixing the Thickness
Fixing smoothies that are too thick isn’t rocket science—just pour some extra water or milk into your blender, fire it up and you’re good to go. On the other hand, if your smoothies lack thickness, you can fix them by using frozen fruit and limiting the amount of used liquid.
Fixing the Sweetness
The fruits you’re using will add their own natural sweetness to your smoothie, so you shouldn’t go overboard with extra sweeteners. You can use agave, maple syrup, or honey to make your smoothies sweeter or add a few drops of lemon juice if they are too sweet.
Fixing the Creaminess
Making perfectly creamy smoothies is all about finding the balance between solid and liquid ingredients, and this is something you’ll learn as you go along. Ice cream or yogurt are often used to make smoothies creamier, but a small amount of avocados is a much healthier option.
