Smoothie cubes are a great way to get your daily dose of fruits and veggies without any fuss. Simply pop a few Bumpin Blends cubes into a blender, add some liquid, and voila! You've got a delicious and nutritious smoothie in no time. But despite their convenience, there are a few common mistakes that people make when using smoothie cubes. Here are the top smoothie cube mistakes to avoid (and how to fix them).
Mistake #1: Using too many cubes
One of the biggest mistakes people make with smoothie cubes is using too many of them. While it might seem like a good idea to load up your blender with as many cubes as possible, this can actually lead to a less-than-ideal smoothie. When you use too many cubes, the resulting smoothie can be too thick and difficult to blend, making it less enjoyable to drink.
- Fix: Start with just a few cubes and add more as needed. If you find that your smoothie is still too thick, add some more liquid to help it blend more easily.
Mistake #2: Smoothie is too thin
Some people make the mistake of adding too much liquid to their smoothie cubes. This can lead to a super-thin texture that's not very appetizing. For a perfect Bumpin Blends smoothie, we've already figured out the recipe for you - pop the cubes and a cup of your favorite liquid and blend!
- Fix: If it gets too thin, try adding a handful of ice or a frozen banana.
Mistake #3: Not mixing up your flavors
If you're using the same smoothie cube flavor every day, you might get bored pretty quickly. Mixing up your flavors can help keep things interesting and ensure that you're getting a variety of nutrients.
- Fix: Try different smoothie cube flavors, or mix and match flavors to create your own custom blends. You can also add different fruits and veggies to your smoothie for even more variety.
Mistake #4: Letting your smoothie sit too long
Smoothies are best enjoyed fresh, as they can start to break down and lose their nutritional value over time. If you let your smoothie sit too long, it can also start to separate and lose its smooth texture.
- Fix: Try to drink your smoothie right away, or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for no more than a day.
Smoothie cubes can be a convenient and delicious way to get your daily dose of fruits and veggies. However, it's important to avoid these common mistakes to get the best results. Follow the instructions carefully, blend the cubes properly, use the recommended serving size, add enough liquid, and store them properly. With these tips in mind, you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious smoothie anytime, anywhere.
