Optional Ingredient Swaps & Recipe Variations

I kept this recipe simple, but if you want to make it extra special, by adding in additional ingredients, or simply swapping some ingredients is all possible.

Here are some options:

  • Instead of fresh ginger root, you can use 1/2 tsp of ground dried ginger instead.
  • If you don’t like oats, you can swap them for chia seeds or flaxseeds.
  • For a thicker smoothie, you can add 1/2 cup frozen banana slices.
  • The fiber in the smoothie makes it quite filling, but adding a healthy source of fat such as from nuts can be another great way to increase the satiety aspect this smoothie can bring. A tablespoon of nut butter can be great.
  • Instead of using plain water as the base for this smoothie, you can use coconut water. It can make the smoothie taste that extra refreshing.
  • If you want to cut through the sweetness of the orange, add lemon juice from 1/2 lemon.
