Ideas And Tips:
• Before squeezing out the juice of a lemon, roll it first to loosen up the flesh so that you get more juice.
• Place the heavier ingredients on top in the blender so that they will push down the lighter ones towards the blade. You help your blender do its thing when you chop your ingredients into small pieces. Doing this will also allow you more room in your blender for more ingredients.
