My Smoothie Variations

If you need or want to change the recipe slightly, you can either experiment on your own or try some of my tried and tested suggestions below:

  1. Change The Fruits: You can swap the mango for pineapple or banana, as for the strawberries, you can use blueberries or raspberries.
  2. Make It Vegan: Swap the dairy yogurt for a vegan alternative. Coconut yogurt is my favorite!
  3. No Oats: Swap the oats for either extra chia seeds, or use flaxseeds. To add a totally different taste, use nut butter such as peanut butter.
  4. Boost The Protein Content: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for extra protein!
  5. Swap The Milk: You can use oat or soy milk instead of almond milk

Recipe Equipment:

When I tested this recipe with all my blenders at home, all of them worked with the recipe!

One thing to note though, is that if you are making this smoothie using the Blendjet blender and a Nutribullet, you may need to shake the blender for a few seconds to help the blending.

Other than that, all the blenders on my list are compatible with this smoothie recipe.
