Is smoothie and milkshake the same?
No, smoothie and milkshake are not the same.
The key difference between them is that the main ingredient in smoothies is fruit, generally frozen fruit and a liquid like milk/ yogurt/ coconut water is added to blend it.
However the main ingredient of a milkshake is milk/ ice cream and it's flavored with different ingredients like fruits, chocolate, coffee, etc.
Recipe tips and tricks
- If you don't have frozen fruits, use un-frozen ones and add a few ice cubes in the blender while blending.
- Also, if using un-frozen fruits, reduce the amount of milk in the recipe.
- For me, the sweetness of fruits is sufficient in smoothies or I prefer adding 1-2 dates as I did in this blueberry banana smoothie. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie add any sweetener of your choice.
- If you use dates in the smoothie, I would recommend adding Medjool dates.
- In the blender put the liquids first and then add the other ingredients. It will make the blending process easier.
- The banana gives a body to smoothies and makes it creamier. However, it also has an overpowering taste. If you don't like the taste of banana skip it and add more strawberries. Also, reduce the amount of milk in that case otherwise the smoothie will become runny.
