How To Get Comfortable On a Lazy Day: Make Yourself a Smoothie
By Space Coast Daily // September 6, 2017
Some days might be overwhelmingly annoying, and that’s a problem especially if you’re trying to enjoy your free days. It’s not that often that you get time away from work or other duties, so you might as well make the most of the time you do get.
Many things can help with this, and one of them is making yourself a big smoothie. It’s a refreshing drink that can be savored in front of the TV, laptop or even on your way to the gym if you want to be more active. But how do you go about making a smoothie? There are some things you should know about smoothies if you want to enjoy them.
It’s important to know that smoothies aren’t the same thing as fruit juice. When you squeeze the juice out of fruit, that’s just juice; it’s not a smoothie. Some juices even have pulp, but that’s not enough to call it a smoothie. What is sufficient however is at least 50% of the drink to be made up of actually solid components form the used fruit or vegetables. Smoothies are as much squashed fruit and veggies as well as they are juice.
If you want to make the most out of this popular and refreshing drink, you need to set up a perfect environment for yourself. Sure, this is more of a favorite thing, as there is no actual rule about how you should drink your smoothie. However, given the fact that you most probably want to enjoy your drink, you need to:
- Cancel surround noise – Make sure no annoying sound can ruin your mood. Spend your drink in a quiet room where you can watch a show or listen to an audiobook in peace.
- Comfort – Giving your taste buds something to enjoy doesn’t mean nearly as much if you take away pleasure from other parts of the body. Make sure you are sitting on something comfortable. If you have a bad mattress, it might be time to look for the best memory foam mattress topper 2017.
- Combos – Smoothies are great by themselves, but they can be even better in the right combinations. Pair them up with your favorite snack or desert to give your taste buds a sensory overload.
When it comes to mixing up the ingredients, which are supposed to be 50-50 on the solid vs. liquid scale, you should have an excellent blender.
If your blender isn’t powerful enough, you will end up having something you won’t enjoy and certainly won’t be able to call itself a smoothie. Furthermore, when mixing ingredients, it’s important to keep at it until the ultimate result is of the right texture. It should also be a homogenous composition, meaning that it’s no longer solid or liquid, but a bit of both.
If you follow these guidelines, you will be able to enjoy your smoothie as maximum efficiency, and you will get a sense of accomplishment as far as making the most of your free day goes.
