the secrets to a great smoothie?

lestblight | Jun 13, 201201:56 PM

is it all about the blender? can you add some creamyness with some emulsifiers?

I am looking to make a rice milk stmoothie.. the rice milk is a little watery so i wanted to add some xanthan to thicken it. i wanted to add some ice so i can get that nice thick frosty goodness you get from a smoothie.. but i am not sure if my blender can do that . I have a pretty average ninja blender from bed bath beyond. Picked this up because it has a 9 cup capacity.

do you think i need a better blender? or adding some yogurt or emulsifiers can give me that creamy effect? ( would prefer to not include yogurt). maybe some evaporated milk?condensed milk? powdered milk?

I would be adding pulps like south american passion fruit, mora( andean blackberry) etc.. so would be on the watery side- no bannanas etc.

thanks! all
