View Full Version : Getting the froth out!

My dear friends,
How can I prevent my green smoothies from being so frothy?! This is frankly driving me nuts as I'm loving the taste of my smoothies and loving all the vibrant nutrition packed inside, but I'm not able to enjoy drinking them as much because of all the frothy bubbles spread throughout the drink. I've got a Vitamix, so it's getting everything very well blended, but it's also stirring up quite a lot of air bubbles.

i've heard adding a bit of avocado helps.

A little flax seed in my smoothie helps me to have no frothy film...I used to have it all the time but now that I add flax seed its all good.:)

Mine always stops frothing after a couple minutes. If I don't drink right away, I shake it up in a glass jar that I drink from and it's fine. Sometimes certain greens and other things can cause it to froth more. Maybe add more liquids.

Maybe your blending too long.... ??
Hmm - I use a BlendTec and I've never had a frothy green smoothie...? Now - my green juice is frothy! *Ü*

A bit of oil (avacado,flax seed as previously mentioned) of any kind will stop most of the froth. I've also heard that overblending causes froth, so now I hover over my blender and pulse instead of letting it run.
Drinking through a straw really helps, too, as you are drinking below the froth.

That's funny cuz of the old rule of oil/butter on your boiliing potatoes also reduces That froth, lol.

I drink it with a Straw and with the Froth left at the bottom.......I add a little water to break it up and drink that. It also goes away after sitting in the Fridge a while.

i think i've figured it out. i think the froth comes up when i "reblend" on high instead of starting at the low variable speed and gradually working my way up. if this stops working for some reason, i'll try the other tricks you've all mentioned.
