There is absolutely no need for milk for the perfect smoothie.
Actually, some of my favorite smoothies that I’ve ever had don’t have any milk in any way.
Sometimes, milk is a good method to build your smoothies. However, it can also water down the flavor , depending on the kind of smoothie you’re making.
Smoothies made from greens specifically should not be made using milk.
I realized a while ago that the most delicious green smoothie I’ve ever had is made from water, citrus fruits and the addition of ice.
Some green smoothies can be delicious when paired with milk, but I prefer smoothies that aren’t.
You must learn which flavours work best together and which clash.
If you don’t, you may end up becoming averse to smoothies, and then giving up on the whole thing.
I was in that situation for a while and I was close to having gone from making smoothies that tasted good.
Now I am able to make amazing drinks at home, I prepare smoothies all the every day!
You can make a smoothie using the use of water in place of milk?
Yes! Water is an excellent way to add a tiny amount of liquid to your smoothies without the need of milk.
This drink is made from one cup of water along with high-liquid fruit and vegetables like citrus, apples, lemons and cucumber.
It is important to remember that you shouldn’t to add a lot of water when making smoothies as they may end up becoming too watery and tasteless.
The most efficient method I’ve found is to mix liquid-rich fruits and vegetables and just enough water for blending.
So you will get a rich and creamy smoothie that isn’t being too watery.
It is also crucial to keep in mind that you should make use of a high-speed blender like a vitamix blendtec to get the most effective results and smooth smoothies.
What can you do to create a smoothie that doesn’t require yogurt or milk?
As you’ve read the most effective method is to utilize large quantities of liquid fruits and veggies along with water as needed.
So , what are the most effective liquid high-quality fruits and vegetables to utilize?
Fruits and vegetables
Below are a few of my top high-water fruit and vegetables that I blend into smoothies.
Personal favorites I like to include are cucumber (you don’t even taste it) and apples (add an incredible sweetness) and citrus fruits.
Below are some steps I follow to make a smoothie that does not require yogurt or milk:
Incorporate liquids or fruits as well as vegetables into the blender first.
(optional step) blend until smooth.
Add the remaining components (such as frozen fruit or fresh or frozen leaves) and blend until it is smooth.
Depending on the power of the blender you have, you could bypass step 2 and simply mix the entire recipe all at once.
But, at times, I find it beneficial to blend the liquid ingredients first to allow the blender to deal with the frozen fruit properly.
Is it possible to make a smoothie without any liquid?
You may be wondering whether you could make a smoothie with no any liquid.
The answer is yes!
Simply follow the steps as previously mentioned, but leave out the water altogether.
I went through a period during which I only made smoothies that were not diluted.
I loved how dense and delicious they were. And i usually went with an all-tropical theme!
The juice cleanse with pineapple is not a liquid at all , and it tasted like an exotic frosty!
Fresh pineapple, cucumber along with lemons, were the “water” componentsthat I blended first.
Then, I added the frozen fruits, my ice as well as the remaining ingredients, and blended them until they were thick and smooth!
How can you make your smoothie more thick?
Smoothies , in my opinion, are focused on texture.
I don’t like gritty, slushy smoothies.
I like my smoothies to be rich and creamy, close like ice cream in texture.
This is how it feels like a treat when sipping it!
how can smoothies be thicker?
- Make use of less liquid or high content water-rich fruit and vegetables
- Add frozen fruit
- Add ice until desired consistency
What I typically do is to add my liquid and liquid vegetables and fruits and blend until smooth.
Add frozen fruit to the mix and mix again.
If my smoothie isn’t extremely thick (again I prefer them to be very thick) I’ll throw to it a cup or two of ice, mix, and serve it immediately.
After you’ve tried creamy ice cream smoothies, you’ll never be the same!
