I’m what some might call a “conservative” smoothie maker. I find my perfect blend and then stick to it. If I know the ratio of milk/juice to frozen berries that results in an almost flawless smoothie, why tamper with that power?!
Especially since I’ve had my fair share of smoothie flops to know that you don’t mess with something when you finally get it right.
I’ve tried adding the gross-tasting protein powder, hoping to mask it by fruit flavours, only for the protein powder to come out more pronounced.
I’ve made smoothies that more resemble a juice than a thick cold iced beverage. If I wanted juice, I’d drink juice!
I’ve done overkill on the fruits – sometimes simple is better.
As you can see, I don’t take smoothie flops lightly. Waste of my precious frozen fruits and liquids! Which is more reason to keep a good thing going, if you got it!
Truth be told, this normally is my mentality, but I slightly strayed from my conservative smoothing-making self today. She would be so proud of herself for being brave, trying something new and not having it flop…yes, she being me.

I’m just so daring today that I even used my Starbucks mug that I purchased right after Christmas, and have not used once! I’m breaking old habits,
one two at a time!
