How to Make Smoothies
You don’t need to be a trained barista or professional drink server in order to know the basics of creating a smoothie. It’s really simple. There are only two major steps, with minor ones to follow after.
- Step 1: Make sure to have all ingredients prepared. If they need to be cut, slice them before placing them inside a blender.
- Step 2: Put all ingredients inside a blender and set to “high” or “smoothie” until the ingredients are finely puréed.
- Step 3: Pour ingredients into a tall glass. You can either serve/drink immediately, or add garnishing to make the smoothie even more appealing.
