Helpful hints

  • Pasteurized liquid egg white is safe to consume without cooking.
  • If substituting frozen fruit add 1/4 cup water instead of the 1/2 cup ice. The degree of “frozenness” will determine how much your blender will be able to take. It will also give a more “soft serve” consistency than a smoothie, which is great in the warmer season.
  • Adjust sugar or low calorie sweetener to taste.
