Making The Perfect Blended Drink

Avoid cakey, unwanted powder in the blender bowl by following these simple rules.

  1. Add your liquid to the blender first.
  2. Add the powder next.  This gives the powder a chance to hydrate in the liquid.  If the powder is added to the top of the ice, it does not have a chance to hydrate and it gets thrown to the sides of the blender in the processing.
  3. Add the right kind of ice.  The ice quality will make a difference in the finished products consistency.
  4. Blend for the correct amount of time.  Don’t stop the blender too early.
