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.
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.
Making a post work out smoothie
Sometimes you don’t have time to eat before training. So instead add a scoop of your favourite type of protein and have your smoothie as a post work out meal replacement.
Have a high powered good quality blender
As a general rule of thumb, the higher a blenders wattage, the smoother the blend. There are exceptions to this of course but usually 600Watts up are good but really 800Watts and up is where you want to be. You may need to blend for longer if the blender is lower powered, blend the milk banana and pouch contents till smooth then add some ice to bring the temperature down. We use Blendtec blenders 1500watts and blend for 40 seconds and maybe twice for a really smooth blend.
Pre-soaking the contents of the pouch in the milk softens everything making it easier to blend and smoother. So even lower powered blenders get good results.
