Smoothie is a common cold drink in summer and is an increasingly popular premium smoothie drink. It is made of pure natural fruit and ice cubes, and is made by breaking and stirring the fruit and ice cubes at high speed with a smoothie machine.
The color is delicious, the taste is cool and sweet, the fruit is pure and thick, and the taste is delicate.
Smoothies are often added with dairy products such as milk, ice cream, or yogurt to make them smoother and more mellow. It is also a good product for summer.
It melts at the entrance. Most of the smoothies are mainly made of coloring, fruit powder and ice cubes. Of course, you can also innovate, improve or choose fresh and creative materials to make delicious smoothies.
All you need is ice, sugar, flavor, and food coloring to start making smoothies. Using a blender to make a smoothie is the fastest, and an ice cream maker makes a smoother smoothie. Even if you don't have either of the above tools, you can still use the refrigerator to make smoothies.
To make with a blender:
Dissolve 1 cup of caster sugar with 2 cups of water. Only by dissolving the sugar beforehand will the smoothie not have a rough grainy feel. Put the sugar and water in a bowl and stir until the sugar is all melted. Add flavor and color. To emulate the flavors of a classic smoothie, add 1.5 teaspoons of flavor, such as raspberry, strawberry, lemon, lime, coconut, or vanilla flavor, and at least 5 drops of food coloring to sugar water. Mix well with a long-handled spoon. You can also add a little flavor or coloring according to your own taste.
No time to buy Flavors and Colors? Then replace the flavors and colors with a bagged juice concentrate.
Break up the sugar water and 2 cups of ice with a blender. Pour the blended sugar water into the blender, followed by 2 full cups of ice. A high-powered blender breaks the ice cubes, even more, resulting in a smoother, smoother-tasting smoothie. It is recommended to throw some ice cubes into the blender first and test whether they can be broken; if not, try other methods.
If you prefer a thinner smoothie, add half a glass of water. If you want a thicker smoothie with more ice, subtract half a cup of the original water.
Stir the mixture at high speed. The power of the mixer determines the mixing time. Usually, you only need a few taps of intermittent blending or continuous blending for a few minutes, and the ice cubes and water will take on the smoothie texture. Continue stirring until the ice cubes are completely crushed and the mixture reaches a satisfying consistency.
For better ice circulation in the machine, stop the machine from time to time and stir the ingredients with a ladle. If the blender isn't powerful enough, transfer the ingredients to a food processor and blend in several batches.
Taste the smoothie. If the flavor, sweetness, and texture of the mixture are satisfying, the smoothie is done. Pour the mixture into a glass and sip it through a straw like a real smoothie. This method can make a two-cup or four-cup smoothie.
To make with the refrigerator:
Dissolve 1 cup of sugar in 4 cups of water. Pour the sugar and water into a bowl and stir well until the sugar particles are completely dissolved. Dissolving the sugar first to prevent the frozen smoothie from being grainy.
Mix in flavor and food coloring. Add 1.5 teaspoons of flavor and 5 to 10 drops of color to the sugar water. Taste and add coloring and flavoring according to your taste and preference.
Pour the mixture into a shallow baking pan. The edges of the pan should be a few centimeters high so the liquid doesn't spill.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap.
Freeze the mixture for two hours, stirring every 30 minutes. Each stirring is to keep the mixture from freezing. The mixture slowly begins to approach the texture of a smoothie. After about 3 hours, the smoothie was ready.
Spoon the smoothie into a glass. This method makes two cups or four small smoothies. Enjoy a delicious masterpiece!
