Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are green smoothies healthy?
Green smoothies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fibre from leafy greens and fruits, promoting overall health and digestion. They offer a convenient way to consume a variety of nutrient-rich foods in one go.
For an even healthier boost, consider adding Free Soul's Vegan Protein Blend. This blend complements the natural goodness of green smoothies, ensuring you get a balance of essential nutrients while also supporting muscle growth and repair.
By integrating this protein blend, you're amplifying the benefits of your green smoothie, making it a powerhouse of nutrition and taste.
Can I make a green smoothie ahead of time?
Yes, you can! Making a green smoothie in advance can be a time-saver. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
However, for optimal freshness and to retain the most nutrients, we recommend consuming it within the first 12 hours. If separation occurs, just give it a quick shake or stir before drinking.
If you're planning to enjoy it later, consider adding a splash of lemon juice to maintain colour and taste.
How can I make a thick green smoothie?
For a luxuriously thick green smoothie, begin with 400ml of almond milk, setting the foundation for your drink. Incorporate a ripe banana, which acts as a natural thickener and sweetener.
Enhance the richness by adding 2 tbsp of our Vegan Protein Blend, while the 1 tsp of FS-Greens powder infuses it with a nourishing green touch. For a refreshing chill and added thickness, introduce a handful of ice cubes to the blend.
Complement the flavours with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and if you have a sweet tooth, consider a drizzle of honey.
What are some tips for making a better green smoothie?
Great green smoothies can be achieved with these handy tips:
- Use Frozen Fruit: It helps keep the smoothie cold and thick. Ice may not blend as well, so use frozen fruit when possible. If you have fresh fruit, add 1 cup frozen cauliflower.
- Add More Liquid: If the smoothie is too thick or not blending well, don't hesitate to add more liquid. Smaller blenders may require more liquid compared to high-powered ones.
- Blending Technique: Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase to high for effective blending of all ingredients. Finish with the blender on low speed.
These simple adjustments can create the perfect green smoothie texture and taste!
