The Best Ingredients To Make Smoothies Thick & Creamy
Adding frozen bananas to your smoothie recipe is the easiest way to not only make your smoothie thick and creamy but to also add a little natural sweetness. The texture of the frozen banana will easily give your smoothie a dessert like texture and taste.
If you're looking for a lower carb/keto friendly smoothie base, cooked and frozen cauliflower is what you need. Simply steam or boil the cauliflower, allow it to cool and store in the freezer in a ziploc bag. Use as a base for any smoothie. I often add it to my Blackberry Strawberry Smoothie recipe.
This is a little trick that I LOVE using to make any smoothie taste just like dessert. Simply add a tiny bit of xantham gum (½ tsp is more than enough) to your blender when making your smoothie.
Xantham gum is a great way to make your smoothie extra thick and fluffy. It is my favorite thing to add to chocolate smoothies.
Storing & Freezing Smoothies
Storing smoothies: Smoothies can be stored in a mason jar or a glass covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Freezing smoothies: Pour the smoothies into an ice cube tray or freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months. Allow to thaw slightly and blend before serving.
