A few tips on how to improve your blends
Truthfully it’s all down to personal preference, some people like blends very smooth while others like a bit of constancy. Based on our blending experience we have a couple of suggestions on how to get the most out of your smoothie.
Invest in a good blender
To get a really smooth blend we recommend a blender with at least 600 watts. The higher the better. A well-designed and powerful blender can make all the difference.
We use whole / real ingredients in our mixes so shaking, hand blenders and/or low powdered blenders just won't cut it.
Make to your taste
Due to the call for lower sugar in products, we do not add sugar to the mix. If you find the smoothie mix is not to your taste, perhaps adding the whole banana, agave syrup and/or a teaspoon of sugar might make it more to your liking.
This is a base mix that you can use as you wish. Adding other ingredients like strawberries, avocado or vanilla protein mixes (just sharing examples here) is a great way to make it more to your pallet.
Pre-soak the mix
If you find that the smoothie isn't as smooth as you'd like, try pre-soaking your ingredients overnight.
Simply add our Pure Recharge Smoothie Mix to your almond milk and leave to soak in the fridge overnight. Then the next day, simply blend when you’re ready. This can help to create a creamier consistency, particularly with conventional blenders under 600 watts.
Whether you are training at a gym or not, protein is known to be great for muscle recovery but also useful to reduce hunger and snacking.
We like hemp protein because it’s a plant-based product and is a simple 1 ingredient mixture. It also blends really well into smoothies so is a great supplement to our smoothie mixes.
We get ours from Raised Spirit
Experiment with other ingredients
We recommend bananas because they are sweet and readily available but you could add blueberries or exchange the bananas for strawberries. Even try branching into green smoothies by adding a handful of Kale or Spinach
Spinach is known as one of the best sources of dietary magnesium, which is necessary for energy metabolism, maintaining muscle and nerve function, regular heart rhythm, a healthy immune system, and maintaining blood pressure. Great reasons to add this to your mix.
