Important Tips to Remember
In case you have some leftover smoothies, the best thing to do is to refrigerate it instead of placing it in the freezer. The idea is to keep the leftover fresh and ready to drink for later, but never turned into a huge block of ice. Once you are ready to drink it, simply pop the chilled smoothie into your blender, mix well, and pour into a glass. It is also better if you do not store smoothie for more than 24 hours if you decide to save it for later.
