ADD ICE LAST: Adding ice first may cause you to overblend, leaving you with a watery drink.
IF YOU USE FROZEN FRUIT: You may not need as much ice. Frozen fruit is as nutrient-packed as fresh—just choose those with no added sugars.
SELECT A PREMIUM THYME HONEY: In the market you will find several options of thyme honey, which however contain as little as 18% of thyme pollen grains.
