We actually do get questions about ice – and if there is a difference between using large cubes, small cubes, etc. Blenders will have an easier time blending smaller cubes of ice than larger cubes. Additionally, smaller cubes have more surface area which means they melt faster. Because of this – your smoothie will be more icy with large cubes of ice than with small cubes of ice (assuming you are using the same amount of ice).Nutrition Facts

How Our Scoring System Works
For each health goal, we assigned a score to each recipe and each ingredient. This helps you better understand the correlation that medical research is suggesting between foods and benefits to various health goals. Our scoring system is based on REAL RESEARCH published on pubmed.gov. This is a website that curates over 25 million different biomedical journals.
What we consider when creating your scores:
- 1Type of Study (human, animal, lab, or academic review)
- 2Amount of Research
- 3What the Research Says
- 4How much of the ingredient we use (for the recipes)
