Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

If you don’t have some of the ingredients listed in my recipe or simply want to change it up a bit, you can certainly do so.

You can experiment on your own, or try some of my suggestions below:

  1. Use Other Seeds: You can swap the chia seeds for flaxseeds, or if you don’t have any fancy seeds, you can use oats.
  2. Make It Richer And More Filling: Adding a tablespoon of nut butter such as peanut butter can help make this smoothie more filling, and taste richer!
  3. Boost The Protein Content: The smoothie contains 8.5g of protein per serving, but you can help increase that by either adding a scoop of protein powder or 1/2 cup of yogurt.
  4. Swap The Base: For a more refreshing taste, swap the almond milk for coconut water or coconut milk.

This smoothie is ideal for breakfast to start your day with energy or as a post-workout drink to help with recovery due to its high protein and nutrient content.
