How to make smoothie more smooth? Have you had issues making a perfectly balanced smoothie that comes out smooth?
We have been there! We have had terrible watery smoothies or smoothies that came out with bits, we have made all the mistakes in the world.

But, if you have come to the right place. If you are wondering how do I make my smoothie creamy – we have all the answers for you!

How To Make Smoothie More Smooth

How To Make The Smoothest Smoothies Ever:

The problem with a lot of people making smoothies is, that they often just throw ingredients in the blender and hope for the best.
Sometimes they do get lucky and achieve a good smoothie, but just like anything, you will need to have an understanding of how ingredients work, what you will need, and how much of it you will need.

Here are our top suggestions to make the perfect smooth smoothie:

  • Use thickening ingredients such as banana, yogurt, chia seeds, etc.
  • Cut down on the liquid. You can always add more liquid to adjust the consistency, but it’s hard to take away the liquid.
  • Make sure you use the right amount of ingredients. Ideally follow a recipe, and the instructions accordingly.
  • Don’t try to ‘wing it’ read the recipes well and make sure you add the exact amount of quantities for each ingredient.
  • Don’t add too many leafy greens; if you do, make sure you balance them with a thickening ingredient.
  • Make sure you have a quality blender. A quality blender can really make a huge difference.

If you follow these tips, you are extremely likely to always get the perfect smooth smoothie!

Why Are My Smoothies Lumpy?

How To Make Smoothie More Smooth

It is really annoying when you end up drinking your smoothie and you find big lumps of unprocessed ingredients. It just puts you off your smoothie.
There are several reasons why you might be ending up with lumpy smoothies:

  • Your blender isn’t strong enough. If you don’t have a powerful blender, it will struggle to process the ingredients fine enough; especially if you put the ingredients whole, without chopping them.
  • You are using hard ingredients – such as raw carrots, hard apples, frozen fruit, etc. If you have a strong blender though, you shouldn’t have these issues.
  • The ingredients aren’t blended long enough.
  • Too much ice was added.
  • You have added too much liquid.

We just want to go back to what we said earlier – it’s imperative that you follow the recipes accordingly. Just throwing in ingredients to the blender and hoping for the best won’t always generate you the perfect smoothie.
