How to Properly Use the Smoothie Strainer

About the Smoothie Strainer
Apart from being different colors, the smoothie strainer looks similar to the juicing strainer at first glance. Same shape, small holes, and pops into the same spot in the juicer. The difference is the size of the holes along the side and the number of holes on the bottom. The larger holes in the smoothie strainer allow for the ingredients to come out thicker than how a juice would.There’s a rubber plug that plugs the hole in the juicer where juice pulp would normally extract from. This ensures all fruit ingredients get crushed and mixed up so you get that yummy smoothie texture.
How to Use the Strainer & Create the Perfect Smoothie
This is our curated guide in creating the perfect smoothie for you to enjoy.
Two Cups of Smoothie
The bowl, which mixes all the fruit ingredients together, has a capacity of 400ml. This size allows approximately two cups of smoothie to be made each session. This will ensure you’re getting the smoothest and most creamy smoothie possible. We strongly encourage keeping the smart cap closed for each session so you’re thoroughly crushing and mixing your ingredients.
One Cup of Liquid
For each session, add at least 1 cup of liquid first. Doing so will ensure each ingredient added is smoothed out consistently from the liquid in the bowl.
Small Portions at a Time
Remove hard seeds, pits and any peels. Insert small portions of ingredients at a time. This will ensure the auger can focus on each portion, crushing ingredients so no chunks are missed.
One Cup Loose Greens
Limit your smoothie recipe to one cup of loose greens per session. Vegetable stems and celery should not be used with the smoothie strainer.
Start with soft ingredients first.
Finish making your smoothie by inserting your hard ingredients. Hard ingredients will help scoop up and bring down anything left from the soft ingredients.
When using frozen ingredients, make sure to thaw them for at least 10 minutes beforehand. Having some frozen ingredients in your smoothie will ensure a delicious icy thick texture.
You’re done making your smoothie, you pull everything apart, and all you can see is leftover pulp. Please, don’t stress! This is 100% normal. Your smoothie strainer is not defective, it is working how it should.
