KNOW YOUR BLENDER Many of us didn’t know that the blenders we use at home also greatly affect the texture and taste of our smoothies. Most blenders only last a week or two (depending on how many times it has been used for a day). There are different parts of the blender you need to take note before buying your very own blender. The Blades—blades are essential in making your smoothies. You should look for blades that has thick base (having thick base helps blade stability and avoid the blade from being numb). For better smoothie experience, look for a blender with 3 or more blades pointing on different directions (up, down and horizontal). The Pitcher—pitcher size depends on your personal usage and dose of smoothie but always pick a blender with glass pitcher. Plastic pitchers are not suitable for crushing ice for it may break and just create a huge mess and danger. The Engine— higher watts produce better blender performance. Engines that are not strong enough oftentimes burn when used up to 5 times a day.

Visit your nutritionist or dietician to know what are the right fruits and vegetables to supplement your lifestyle and daily needs.

Smoothies can also be stored in the fridge for future use. Thus, reducing the time and energy you need for a day or two. You just need to open the fridge, take the smoothie and drink it.
