You made a shake or smoothie and it’s got the consistency of water. Do you force it down and pretend it never happened? Add more ice in hopes that it’ll thicken up without watering it down? Keep adding more ingredients?
Guess what? You don’t have to do ANY of those! I’m here to tell you how to instantly thicken up ANY shake or smoothie with one simple ingredient!
That simple ingredient? Xanthan gum!
Xanthan gum will add almost no calories to your recipe and 1/2 teaspoon or less to a shake or smoothie will instantly turn your consistency thick.
Seriously, that’s all you need. It’s like a food genie in a bag.
Xanthan gum can be purchased at most grocery stores nowadays for a couple bucks. A lot goes a long way too so that couple bucks should last you a really long time!
If you don’t want to go look for it in store, you can purchase it by clicking right here.
