The Secret to Make The Best Smoothie EVER

I have been getting a lot of questions recently on instagram about my smoothie bowls. So I’ve decided to share with you my secret to help you to make the BEST SMOOTHIE EVER.

how to make the best smoothie bowl ever

My number one tip is to…


Please don’t read that to mean you have to go out and buy the most expensive ingredients because that’s not what I mean.

Your smoothie is only going to be as tasty as the ingredients that you use. So make sure to use ripe fruit (unless you want your smoothie to be sour) and ingredients that you actually like the taste of!

For example, I often make my mango green smoothie recipe. It’s one of my favourites but sometimes it doesn’t turn out quite as well as others. I’m super impatient and sometimes I can’t wait for my bananas or mango to ripen and become sweeter. Or sometimes I forget about that bag of spinach in my fridge and it goes slightly off but I chuck it in my blender anyway! I have to say it really does alter the taste.

So remember

Always use good quality ingredients.

    This is a really good point Rachel! I’m exactly the same, sometimes my spinach is looking a bit sorry but I just chuck it in anyway! Also, using ingredients that are similar colours so you don’t end up with a brown sludge is a good tip for Instagram-worthy smoothie bowls xx

      I always worry people might make my smoothie recipes and think it isn’t very nice, but that’s because they have used bad ingredients.
      Brilliant tip. I totally agree. Sometimes I try and chance it and end up having to add lots of cacao powder to hide the sludge colour!
