Questions about lactose-free green smoothie

Below, we go through some of the most frequently asked questions about lactose-free green smoothie, so keep on reading if you want to know more.

What is a green smoothie?
Easy to make and easier to enjoy, lactose-free green smoothies are the perfect refreshing beverage when you need a tropical twist, bursting with flavour and colour. They are made from great complementary fruits and vegetables like pineapple, mango, kale, and baby spinach that craft a harmonious sweet-and-bitter taste combination.
Can you make a lactose-free green smoothie the night before?
Yes! While the taste is stronger if served immediately after making it, you can leave it in the fridge overnight and grab a glass on your way to work in the morning. Simply store it in an airtight container. A little trick is to add around ½ tablespoon of lemon juice per serving. Not only does it add a dose of additional freshness, but it also helps preserve the gorgeous colour.
Can you freeze lactose-free green smoothie?
Yes! Double the recipe and freeze the leftover mixture in portion-sized freezer bags or boxes so you always have a delicious refreshment on hand. When you want to enjoy it, let it thaw in the fridge or on the kitchen table. You can give it a quick swing in the blender to get the perfect creamy texture back.
