Having a bag of frozen fruit in the freezer is a total must for every smoothie maker.
Frozen fruit plays a super important role in making a delicious smoothie. Most smoothie bowls require frozen fruit, in order to achieve that thick and creamy consistency.
Also, making frozen fruit smoothies is convenient. Fresh fruit goes bad pretty quickly. Frozen fruit can last in the freezer for a couple of months.
When you fancy a berry smoothie, you can literally make it straight away, without worrying about having to go to the shop to get some berries.
Is Frozen Fruit Good For Smoothies?
Frozen fruit smoothies may actually be healthier for you than fresh fruit smoothies.
Why? Because when the fruit is harvested, it’s almost immediately frozen, which preserves freshness and nutrients.
When you buy fresh fruit, you never know how long it’s been sitting on the shelves, or how far it’s traveled to get to your local grocery store.
Also, buying frozen fruit works out much cheaper than buying fresh fruit. So you end up saving some bucks too.
How Do You Make Frozen Fruit Smoothies Taste Better?
If you have had a bad experience drinking frozen fruit smoothies, there are a few things you can do, to no longer drink bad-tasting smoothies.
Although, it’s pretty hard to get frozen fruit smoothies wrong, but sometimes it happens.
Here’s how to make your frozen fruit tastier:
- Add Nutt Butter
- Add Sweeteners Such As Honey, Agave, Maple Syrup, etc
- Measure The Ingredients Accordingly (Follow recipes well, by weighing in ingredients properly)
- Use Mixed Fruit Rather Than 1 Type Of Fruit Only
- Add Some Greens (Spinach, Kale)
- Add Spices (Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Cardamom, etc)
- Chocolate (cocoa/cacao powder)
