Smoothies are probably one of the best beverages to consume. And it could not be any easier to make at home. Simply grab a blender and throw in any fruits and vegetables that are around. Now, you are probably thinking, that is a bit gross, re: throwing in any fruits and vegetables. But experimenting with different combinations will allow you to establish what tastes good together and what does not. I have tried several different combinations for a while and because summer time is a great time to have a refreshing glass, I thought it would be nice to share some of my summer favourites.
Please note, I do not use any measurements. I tend to eyeball everything. Whatever seems like the right amount is what I go for. When it comes to consistency, add about a half a cup of water (or milk) for a watery-juice approach. For a thick smoothie, add little to no water, or add in a banana or avocado. If sweetness is lacking, add in produces that are sweet. However, if it is a tad bit sweet, add in fruits or vegetables that are not as sweet to balance the taste. In the end, it all depends on knowing your taste buds and likings. Again, do not be afraid to experiment! Happy Blending!
