When most people think of the Yogurt Blender, they automatically think of a simple vanilla smoothie that has a container, a pump, and a blender attachment. A blender allows you to add or blend items with ease. But, the other components are important too.
Yogurt is one of the great health food choices for a lot of reasons. It is low in fat and has plenty of calcium and protein. You can find yogurt in cartons in many grocery stores and you will find it is very low on sugar and calories. Since so many people already know about the health benefits of yogurt, it only makes sense to use a blender to blend it to make a delicious smoothie.
Yogurt is easy to blend. Add it to hot water and heat the mixture until it becomes thick and creamy. Then, add milk and blend until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. There are a few things to keep in mind when blending it in a blender.
Make sure you are using fresh fruit and that you are using the appropriate fruit part of the fruit, such as the seeds and rind. If not, you may end up with an inconsistent product and may end up with an empty container.
Yogurt will be much thicker if you use unripe berries. If you use fresh berries, you will need to adjust the thickness by adding boiling water to the mixture to thin it out a bit. Then, turn off the heat and let it cool. Just put it in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Use the yogurt to create a smoothie base.
Rose apple is another fruit that will give you a better and tastier smoothie. The flowers, seeds, and fruit of this apple are packed with vitamins and minerals that help our bodies to heal and restore. As long as you stay away from eating them raw, they are excellent for blending.
Juice has been one of the best sources of protein in my family for years. So, it only makes sense to create a healthy smoothie using the juiced fruit and other additions like frozen banana, or a high quality frozen yogurt, or other fresh fruits. This gives the smoothie base a solid base for the other ingredients to go on top of.
Blenders come in a wide variety of flavors. Fruit smoothies are fairly common. Strawberries and bananas are two examples of fruits that work well. Coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, and even fruit juice with an added sugar substitute are other options.
Yogurt can be used to provide a background flavor to smoothies or desserts. For example, you can try making a strawberry yogurt smoothie with some fresh strawberries and some lemon juice. You can add small amounts of cinnamon, vanilla, and other spices as well. Adding a dash of vanilla extract gives the yogurt a smoother texture than other fruits.
Adding a couple of drops of real fruit flavor is another way to make a unique blend of flavors. These are often added with either vanilla or raspberry flavored extracts. That way, you get a treat that is not only healthy but is also flavorful. You may also want to consider adding a little spice to your smoothie by mixing up some dried Cayenne pepper in a container and adding it with a blender for added flavor.
Whichever blend you choose, there are lots of recipes online that show you how to mix a smoothie with a blender. Follow the directions carefully to make sure you are getting the exact right ingredients to make a tasty smoothie. After all, your ultimate goal is to enjoy it and feel good about yourself. And, if you like fresh fruit, you can always add them in a smoothie recipe later, so that you have a nice side dish to help you get through the day.
