I bought a blendtec about a week ago and everything I make is foamy :( I don't care for foamy. I made OJ the other day and after it sat a bit it turned firm. Hubby said it was good pudding...LOL Not after pudding. I have read to add ice but I really don't care for cold drinks. Has anyone else experienced this? It does not matter if I add water or not add water either or what setting I have it on. Please, anyone have advice on this?
For oranges, I blend for only about 10 seconds on low speed with a vitamix. Just long enough to break up the chunks. I can't see how this would make foam on a blendtec.
I blended oranges under whole foods juice as I wanted juice.
I actually have a vita mix that I had when in the US but can't use it here in Europe. It would make the best cream pea soup. So smooth. With this blendtec it tastes furry :(
When I add more water and a little ice (don't worry, it doesn't make a slushy, it still comes out like juice), I don't get as much foam. I had the same problem at first, too.
i wouldn't recommend using a blender for OJ. unless you are combining oranges with other things in a smoothie. a citrus press or hand juicer is best.
If you don't like foamy, then don't blend high-water content fruits and veggies. I find that melon and celery makes the most foam. Also, pulsing helps a lot- or just try a lower speed setting.
Agreed, that high-water content fruits make the most foam, but cantaloupe is soooo tasty in smoothies. When I get the water/ice to fruits/veggies ratio down right I don't get foam, though.
