I thought I’d take the time to write about smoothies while my daughter is napping. There is no way I’d make one right now because we have a loud blender. We choose Vitamix because it blends ice well and they last for a long time. I enjoy making thick smoothies instead of eating ice cream. I usually don’t measure so it varies every time I make it. My suggestion is to put in less liquid for a icy thicker smoothie and more if you want to drink it. Put the fresh fruit in first and always put frozen stuff on top. I often put chia seeds in for a nutritional boost.
