1. Problem 1: it's too thick
They are light, fluffy, and only require simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand in your kitchen.
And if you want your pancakes to be more nutritional, you can definitely add protein powder to your batter, or even matcha green tea to improve its overall taste, and not to mention that it has 10x more antioxidants than regular green tea!
Problem 2: it's too watery/thin
There are so of ways to thicken up a watery smoothie.
The easiest is to toss in 3 or 4 cubes and blend well, but this will obviously dilute the overall taste of your smoothie due to more water.
Bananas (especially frozen ones) work really well, but they will add about 100 calories and 15 g of sugar, so use them wisely.
You can also try a quarter cup of rolled oats, a half-cup of Greek yogurt, half an avocado, a tablespoon of chia seeds, or half a baked sweet potato. They all are surefire smoothie thickeners.
Problem 3: it tastes like dirt
Whenever you encounter this problem, adding one teaspoon of vanilla extract to your smoothie will mask the earthy flavor of your smoothie.
Check your green selections next time you're blending a smoothie. Vegetables like green dandelion and broccoli are notorious for having a bitter taste.
Problem 4: it's too sweet
Got your smoothie too sweet? Adding a slice of lemon juice will do the trick!
Problem 5: it's boring
