Secret tips for making smoothie.

Browse By

Many people may think that making a smoothie is just about adding 2-3 types of fruits, ice, and sweeteners. But in fact, there are techniques for selecting ingredients that will not only make your favorite smoothie taste delicious, but also have a positive effect on your health, as follows:

Choose fruits that are low in sugar. Berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries, as well as cantaloupe, grapefruit, and papaya, are all fruits that are low in sugar. In addition, many people like to drink smoothies with bananas because they are delicious and help to thicken the smoothie. However, bananas are fruits that are high in sugar. About 85 grams of bananas contain about 10 grams of sugar. Cherries, grapes, mangoes, and figs are also fruits that are high in sugar. Therefore, you should control the amount you consume. You can add ice or choose frozen fruits to help thicken the smoothie instead. And you should not drink more than 150 milligrams or about 1 small glass of smoothies per day because the sugar from the fruit may increase the risk of tooth decay.UFABET  

Add sources of protein and healthy fats. Avocado is a fruit that contains good fats, as well as B vitamins, potassium, and antioxidants. Whey protein and peas are also sources of easily digestible protein that contain essential amino acids. You can also add chia seeds to thicken your smoothie and add fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

Add green leafy vegetables for added benefits, such as spinach, kale , or Swiss chard. These vegetables will add a green color to your smoothie and are also packed with nutrients, including vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. You can also add some lime juice to help the flavor of the greens blend well with the other fruits in the glass.
