For the hotter summer weather, all of us want to look great in a pair of shorts or a swimsuit. The best thing to do is start out your day with a healthy breakfast but most of us don’t have the time to cook one up so we search for healthy, quick alternatives. Smoothies are a great way to start your day because you can have your veggies, greens, and protein in a smoothie. But, you want to have the smoothie maker that will provide you a smooth, creamy, delicious smoothie.
Are you really going to be making a smoothie for your whole family or just for you? There are an assortment of sizes of smoothie makers; some will make just enough for one person and many others will be large enough to make smoothies for the entire family. If you wish to take a smoothie maker to function so that you can make one a little later, a smaller one may be the one to select. Irrespective of how much you are making, you will want your smoothie maker to have a sturdy, firm base with a tight-fitting lid. If you didn’t have time to create a breakfast, you surely don’t want to take the time to wash up a smoothie wreck.
Pick a smoothie maker that can blend frozen ingredients such as ice and frozen fruit. A smoothie maker providing 500 watts of electricity will usually do the trick of blending up the ingredients. Sometimes you might want to choose a fresh fruit when they are in season for a more pleasing taste. Definitely include a banana in your smoothie since they have key nutrients like fiber, vitamin B-6, and potassium. You can add plain yogurt and non-fat milk to make it a bit more fluid. Stay away from fruit juices because of the calories that they include; there will be enough fruity flavor in the fruit you choose. The blades should be a powerful metal capable of blending everything into a great tasting smoothie free of lumps and balls.
Insert your favorite protein powder for additional nutrition; vanilla flavored works well because it doesn’t overpower the fruity flavor. Including a protein powder will give you a boost and give longevity to your breakfast smoothie so that you don’t reach for the sugar glazed donut from the break room at work.
Some smoothie makers will have variable speeds so that you can begin the mixing process slowly and then add more speed once the ingredients are mixed together. Some even have a timer that you can set to turn the smoothie maker off once it has reached the desired consistency.
