Whether it’s on the go, a special after school treat or a late night snack, smoothies are the pick-me-up of everyone’s dreams. With simple ingredients, a blender and a little creativity you can make something that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
In my early stages of smoothie making (circa age 12 after my first strawberry smoothie at a restaurant), I had a hard time replicating a professionally made blended treat. My mother would say “add sugar!” or “put more milk in!” and it never worked. With more experimenting I became a swell smoothie maker. Ready to get started with your own experimenting? You just need these 5 never fail ingredients.
Blend it up with these ingredients and you will not fail! I will leave you with my favorite sweet smoothie recipe. I use frozen fruit so I don’t have to use ice.
