But for them to really benefit the body and please the taste, you need to know some secrets of their preparation:

  2. The homogeneous texture is the key to success. So get a powerful blender;
  3. Do not mix dark greens with berries, otherwise, the cocktail will turn out unappetizing color;
  4. Cool all ingredients before cooking;
  5. Sweetness is a mandatory component of any smoothie. It will be added by bananas or natural sweeteners: honey, Jerusalem artichoke syrup, or maple syrup;
  6. Use vegetable milk instead of cow’s milk – this way the drink will be easier to digest;
