SUBSTITUTIONS FOR FRUIT SMOOTHIE
Fruit– Mixing in some pineapple or strawberries would be delicious in this fruit smoothie.
Yogurt– Nonfat greek yogurt is a great way to add protein and richness to smoothies for a low amount of calories. You can substitute with dairy free yogurt or full fat yogurt. You can also skip the yogurt, but may need a little bit more milk.
Milk– Any milk will work in this recipe. Almond, Dairy, or other non dairy milks will all work.
Protein Powder– Protein powder isn’t necessary but it is recommended for this recipe. The added protein will help keep you full, rather than this just being blended fruit (sugar and carbs). Any protein powder will work. We like this protein powder best.
Frozen Fruit– You can substitute frozen fruit for fresh fruit. Substitute 1:1. Frozen fruit will result in a thicker smoothie. Fresh fruit will result in a thinner smoothie
Other Add Ins– Feel free to add in other nuts or seeds to this recipe. Chia or flax seeds would make a great addition!
Greens– We love to add a handful of spinach or kale to this recipe. You can’t taste it and it’s delicious
Frozen Cauliflower: Frozen cauliflower is relatively tasteless and helps thicken smoothies. It’s also a great way to add in sneaky veggies. 1/4 cup cauliflower rice will blend nicely in this recipe.
Fresh vs Frozen fruit smoothie
You can use fresh or frozen fruit in a smoothie. Fresh fruit will result in a thinner smoothie, while frozen fruit will result in a thicker smoothie.
I personally prefer frozen fruit. It keeps for much longer and it is often cheaper than buying/cutting fresh fruit!
Can this fruit smoothie be stored for later?
We wouldn’t recommend making this smoothie and storing for later. It will last for a couple hours in a glass, but it will start to separate.
This smoothie is best to drink fresh!
Can this fruit smoothie recipe be made in bulk? You can double or triple this recipe if you’d like. However I wouldn’t recommend making this smoothie and storing it for later. It’s best to make it fresh and enjoy!
