To reach the perfect consistency, use more fruits or vegetables. One can also use rolled oats to increase consistency. Adding rolled oats also enhances the taste of the smoothie, and this is a complete filler.

Reduces the number of ingredients: using a lesser amount of ingredients helps in focusing on the main ingredient; it also makes the beverage more flavorsome—use of only one or two fruits or vegetables.

A final step uses the pulse button, the pulse button means blending at the highest speed, and when you remove your finger from the button, it automatically stops. Pulse helps in blending the smoothie perfectly.
  6. Make use of a spatula: while making a smoothie take small pauses to mix the smoothie. It will mix the ingredients well enough. Also, do this 3-4 times while making the smoothie and always scrape down from the blender’s sides with a spatula.
