Starbucks smoothies make smoothies using original ingredients in the orange mango one. So, these are good for health and you get to have a great time feeling every bit of divine flavor. Your tongue longs for more and more.
Today we are going to tell you how to make Starbucks smoothies at home. Making something for yourself or someone else is always an amazing experience. Therefore, when you are making something as good as a smoothie, you are not only adding ingredients but you are adding a part of yourself with it. By part, we don’t mean an ACTUAL part of yourself (That’d be crazy). The fact is that you can brighten up your day or someone else’s with a heavenly cup of smoothie at any time.
What is a smoothie? What are the Main Ingredients of a Smoothie?
Before we dive into making one let’s see what ingredients will you need. Making a smoothie is rather easy although it may look tough because of the textures and the taste. Once you get to know the basics the rest is easy. Moreover, with a tight grip on the basic ingredients and understanding, you can tweak the smoothie to your liking. Before you can get to that level you have to know and learn how to make a simple smoothie.
A smoothie has a thick texture, it looks like a thick dense liquid but tasty. It has fruit in it or two. The fruit goes in the milk. To make a different smoothie, the fruit can also be paired with yogurt or ice cream.
Three Main Ingredients of Smoothie
1). A fruit or two fruits
2). Something Creamy
3). A liquid
These are the three main ingredients used to make the tastiest thing ever. We told you before when you have a perfect hold on the basics then you can make a different type of smoothies. People usually don’t get what they want on their first try but don’t let that stop you. Why? Because it’s fun!
So, let’s get started
First of all, you will need fruit, any fruit would do but start with the one you like the most. Use fresh fruits for the first time and see what becomes of them. Rome was not built in a day now, was it?
A creamy thing, the second ingredient is something with a creamy texture like yogurt or you can mash the fruit and use that. Similarly, use banana paste if you like bananas. You can also use Cottage Cheese to add a creamy touch.
The third thing is a liquid. Something that dissolves or accepts your first-time invention. Oh! And no water ok! People mostly use milk so you can do that too. More people (experienced people) use fruit juice. One more thing, don’t just use any juice, use the one you love the most. Paying attention to personal likings is the key to making a great smoothie. Similarly, you can also use Coconuts. Not the entire coconut silly! Just the water inside it. Now, don’t you be going to put a whole coconut in the blender ok! (Pardon the pun)
These are all the basic ingredients to a smoothie. You must be wondering if I mix all that and blend it, then I highly doubt the outcome will be a Starbucks smoothie. Well! You are right. Making a smoothie is an art and to add color to your art, you must-have colors. Those colors are extra ingredients that illuminate the beauty of a smoothie even more.
So, what can you add to make a better smoothie?
Add Vegetable leaves, the ones with a sweet taste, not the bitter ones, or your smoothie is going to ruin someone’s day. Also use oats, protein powder, various seeds, butter, different sweeteners, sweet spices that pack a sweet punch like cinnamon.
Now we have all the ingredients, it’s time to make a smoothie
Put in the liquid first
The veggies are next
Now put in the fruits
If you have something hard on the blades then leave that for last
Now it’s time to introduce all the ingredients to the blades. Turn on the blender but at the slowest speed. Increase the speed gradually for a minute. Don’t go full speed, keep it below the maximum. Let the ingredients dance in there for a minute. You will feel the smoothness inside the blender then stop the machine.
Now take a cup and gently pour in the “Smoothie” you just made. Let us know too how well did it go! It will take some tries until you’re ready to get perfect Starbucks smoothies. It’s a wonderful and mind refreshing experience. So, try different combinations. Who knows you might end up making a masterpiece!
Enjoy your smoothie and also let others try it for positive feedback.
