Are you looking for a quick and nutritious meal or snack that will keep you full and feeling your best? Ajay Beri says that you should try having a smoothie regularly. Smoothies composed of fruits and veggies are an excellent way to get your recommended daily serving of both (one and a half cups of fruit; two to three cups of vegetables). As you probably read in the news, only ten percent of people in the United States are meeting this goal. Smoothies are also good if you’re on the go and preparation and cleanup are pretty easy.
If you are lucky enough to live near a Jamba Juice in the United States or around the word, you don’t even have to worry about making your own if you don’t want to. As a Territory Developer for Jamba Juice, Ajay Beri says that there are so many healthy smoothie options for customers of every taste preference. From green smoothies to chili mango smoothies, you will find one at Jamba Juice that you’ll love. In addition to smoothies, Jamba Juice also serves juices, energy bowls, oatmeal, and other healthy treats.
What If You Have Trouble Making Your Own Smoothie?
If you don’t live near a Jamba Juice or the Do-It-Yourself type, you may decide that you want to buy your own high speed blender and make your own smoothies. Then you can design any smoothie you want, and you’ll likely save some money as well. However, if you do start making your own smoothies, Ajay Beri says that you’re bound to blend a dud every now and then. It happens to everyone – especially newbies.
For example, you might whip up a blend that is too thick to drink. This is an easy fix, luckily. All you need to do is add a small amount of water, milk, or juice and re-blend until you get the consistency that you want. If it’s too thin, adding a banana or frozen fruit will help.
In addition to that, another common problem is that the smoothie ends up being too bitter. This often occurs when you add those mustard greens or dandelion greens. If you are looking to fix the smoothie, experts recommend that you add vanilla extract to mask the earthiness of the greens. In the future you might want to try using milder greens like spinach, which pair better with other smoothie ingredients.
