Making Creamy Green Smoothies – How to Avoid Froth

Creamie Green Smoothie "Why is my green smoothie frothy?" I receive this question daily. There are two main reasons for having froth on top of your smoothie. The first and most common reason is that you are using only fruits that contain insoluble fiber, such as, apples, pineapples, grapes, and citruses. In order to make a smoothie creamy, you need to add some fruits containing soluble fiber, such as bananas, mangos, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, pears, melons and more. Soluble fiber resembles jell, so look for the fruits that have jell-like texture. If you don’t like to add sweet fruit to your smoothie, you can simply add a slice of avocado which also makes a smoothie creamy.

The second common reason for having a frothy smoothie is a weak blender. In this case, adding a cube of ice could help reduce froth.

There is nothing wrong with drinking a green smoothie with froth. Froth only affects the texture and appearance of the smoothie, not its nutritive value. When I travel, I use a small blender and sometimes my smoothie comes out frothy. I simply wait five minutes or shake it well in a jar with a lid, and the froth dies down. I prefer to drink a smoothie with froth than no smoothie at all!
