Don’t throw your juice instead of throwing, use some tactics that may save you from facing a shame in front of your guests. There are plenty of tricks available on the internet to make your hand blender make smoothie thin. You can use ice cubes and blend them. Use frozen bananas but they will add 15g of sugar and about 100 calories in your juice. You can also add a quarter cup of rolled oats, or a half cup of Greek yogurt or half an avocado or tablespoon of chia seeds or half baked sweet potatoes all of these are the best smoothie thickeners.
