Do you ever wake up just to find yourself completely unable to get out of bed, let alone get dressed and make it to the office on time?

Nah, we don’t blame you. After all, life gets in the way, and there’s always something more pressing that needs to be done, right?

Well, if you’re a frequent flyers or just want to unwind after a long day at work, making a smoothie may be the answer to your prayers. Not only is it one of the simplest things to make, but you can also prepare it in advance, so it’s ready when you are. Plus, it helps you save a little bit of money, which is always a good thing.

So let’s get started. Although there are many different types of smoothies out there, usually made with different fruits and nuts, we’re going to teach you how to make the perfect basic vegan smoothie that tastes exactly like Robert Pattinson’s.

The Ingredients

For this particular smoothie, it’s important to use high-quality vegan ingredients, so the taste is as close to perfection as possible, which means no cheap fillers here!

To that end, let’s start with the base of the smoothie. For it to taste the same as the real thing, you’re going to need to use frozen fruit and ice cubes. This will help maintain the smoothie’s texture and consistency when it’s finished. There are many different types of bananas out there, so be sure to try a few to find the perfect flavor for your smoothie.

Other fruits you might want to consider using include:

  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • raspberries

As for the vegetables, if you want to give it a chunky texture, you can use some carrots or beets, but if you’d like it smoother, you can instead opt for spinach or kale. Also, don’t hesitate to try out different types of berries as well, especially if they are in season.

Additionally, make sure to use high-quality dairy-free milk. The cheaper the milk, the more likely it is to have added sugar in it. If you can find a brand that’s specifically made for smoothies, then that’s the one to use.

How To Make A Smoothie

So you’ve decided to give smoothies a go, and you’ve decided to make one that tastes exactly like Robert Pattinson. Great!

But how exactly do you go about doing that? Let’s take a look.

Wash And Chop The Fruits And Vegetables

Before you start cooking, it’s important to clean the raw fruits and vegetables. Throwing away those small bits of food that have gone bad somewhere in the storage is very unlikely to result in something that resembles the luxury goods industry. Also, it’s worth noting that fruits and vegetables that are on the cusp of going bad are often the ones that have the best taste. So it’s always a good idea to prepare them before they go bad. To get started, just sort the fruits and veggies by type and throw away anything that’s slightly unfit for human consumption. Next, wash all of the prepared produce thoroughly before using it in your recipes. Doing this will remove any excess dirt or oil that might have settled on the surface during storage. Also, make sure to dry all of the produce you’re going to use before adding it to your blender, as leaving too much moisture in any food will result in some pretty ugly looking curdling. 

After you’ve prepared all of the fruits and vegetables, it’s time to turn your attention to the liquid you’re going to use to make the smoothie. For this recipe, you’ll need to use a combination of frozen fruit and milk, but remember that the consistency of the finished product will be a result of the ingredients you use and how you blend them, so you can adjust the consistency to your liking simply by adding more or less frozen fruit. We’ve also included a few suggested alternatives if coconut oil is something that you’re trying to avoid.

Add The Dry Goods

Once you’ve prepared the fruits and vegetables, it’s time to add the rest of the ingredients. For this recipe, you’ll need to use two types of frozen fruit – cherries and pineapple – and if it’s a very cold day, you might want to add a little extra vegetable or fruit to give the smoothie a more substantial texture, as well as strawberries and blueberries for their antioxidant properties. Remember: the better the quality of the ingredients you use, the better the end product will taste. Finally, add the vanilla extract and cinnamon, and give it a quick stir to mix everything together. Before you know it, you’ll be preparing a batch of your very own smoothie that tastes exactly like Robert Pattinson!

Of course, you can always add a touch more fruit and/or milk if you feel it needs it. But even then, the base will remain the same. Making a perfect 10-minute vegan smoothie that tastes like an overpriced cup of coffee should, in theory, be easy for anyone to do. But, as we’ve established, life doesn’t always go according to plan, and there are days when making breakfast or dinner just doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. So in those cases, smoothies can be the perfect solution. Not only is it one of the simplest things to make, but by preparing the ingredients in advance, you can ensure that when you do get down to cooking, it will be just a matter of minutes before you have a delicious, nutritious liquid that will help you get back on track.
