What texture should a smoothie be?
When it comes to texture, you ideally want your smoothie to be, well… smooth. This means a perfect balance of liquids and solids. A smoothie that’s too thick is a task to drink, and a smoothie that’s too thin is more like juice.
How do I get my smoothie smooth?
Add yogurt or dairy-free yogurt. Yogurt is thick and creamy, which makes your smoothie thick and creamy too. If it’s too thick, keep blending a bit longer to thin things out. Yogurt is one ingredient that will help you make the smoothest smoothie you can imagine!
What is the proper consistency of a smoothie?
Consistency depends on blender type and chosen ingredients.
- Add Half of Your Liquid.
- Add 1 Cup of Fruit and/or Vegetables.
- Add 1/2 to 1 Cup of Yogurt.
- Add a Handful of Leafy Green Vegetables.
- Add Some Health-Boosters.
- Add a Few Dashes of Spices or Powders.
- Blend for 1 to 2 Minutes, or Until Desired Consistency.
Why is my smoothie so lumpy?
On gelling: If your smoothie is gelling, perhaps you added chia or flax seeds too far in advance. Blueberries, which are very high in natural pectin, are also a culprit of jelly-like smoothies. A re-blend with a little bit of ice and some creamy liquid (if appropriate for the flavor profiles) will likely do the trick.

Why do smoothies turn GREY?
The answer is very simple. Banana smoothies turn brown because the elements of banana fruit in them readily oxidize to create a compound called melanin which is responsible for turning the smoothie brown or grey.
Why is my smoothie gritty?
Too gritty: If your smoothie is gritty, your powder just needs more blender time. If you’re sensitive to fibrous textures, stay away from fibrous veggies like banana and use ice or frozen berries instead. If it’s too thin, add more ice or frozen fruit. If it’s too thick, add more liquid.
Can smoothies have bits?
Sometimes, small chunks of frozen fruit, ice, or powders gunk up either at the bottom of the blending container, or under the blades of the base. If you’ve experienced these common issues with chunky ice or frozen produce before, hopefully our tips will help to turn those smoothies around.
