Nothing is more refreshing and energizing than a nice smoothie. But buying smoothies from your favorite juice bar can get costly.
Making your own is easy.
But they don’t always come out as good as they do when they come from the smoothie shop. That’s only because you don’t know the tricks to make the perfect smoothie.
Here Are 15 Hacks To Create The Most Delicious Smoothies Of All Time:
1) Texture Is King
Texture is everything when it comes to making a good smoothie. It’s a smoothie, so obviously, you want it to be smooth. Using coconut milk or a nut butter helps with this.
2) Make It Creamy
When it comes to texture, you also want your smoothie to be creamy. You can add some unrefined coconut oil to help cream up your smoothie. This helps big time when you’re making green smoothies that don’t have much creaminess to it.
3) Make Your Smoothie Sans Ice
Putting ice in your smoothie can water it down and change the texture. A better alternative is freezing your fruit. You might also want to freeze your milk base.
4) Make It Thicker
No one likes a watery smoothie. Banana makes a great thickening agent. It also acts as a great sweetener.
5) Add Bulk
Are you eating a smoothie as a meal? Bulk up your smoothie to make it more filling. You can do this by adding oats, peanut butter (or other nut butters), and some banana.
6) Add Texture Variation
It’s nice to have a little variety in your smoothie. Add some texture by sprinkling some chia seeds on top of your smoothie. Chia seeds are also packed with protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants.
7) Pre-Prep Your Smoothies
Make your morning smoothie super quickly. Cut up your fruits and other smoothie ingredients and freeze them in a mason jar. This way you can just pour out your jar into a blender and have your smoothie instantly.
8) Know Your Blender

Smoothies should not taste bland. You can add some flavor to your smoothies with spices and sweeteners. Use some vanilla extract, cinnamon, or agave to achieve this.

Is your smoothie lacking a bit? Boost the flavor with some citrus zest. If you don’t have a zester or grater you can use a peeler on an orange, lime, or a lemon.
12) Boost Your Protein
If you’re going to be eating your smoothie as a meal you’ll want to make sure there is lots of protein in it. There are lots of protein powders you can use to boost your protein content. You can even find vegan or dairy-free ones.
13) Smoothie Magic Ingredient
Greek yogurt is the magic ingredient for your smoothie. It makes your smoothie everything you want it to be. It will make your smoothie nice and smoothie, creamy, and will thicken it up.
14) Tiny Ice Cubs
