Tasty Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes:

Some tasty recipe variations I have experimented with, which I think you will like include:

  • Nut-Free Recipe: Swap the peanut butter for 1/4 avocado or a tablespoon of sunflower seed butter.
  • Swap The Seeds: Don’t have flaxseeds or chia seeds? Use oats or simply use an extra tablespoon of nut butter.
  • Chocolate Flavored: Incorporate a tablespoon of cocoa powder for a chocolatey infusion.
  • Protein Boost: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for an extra 20-25g of protein.

Recipe Equipment:

BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender

Out of the 8 blenders I tested with this recipe, only Blendjet blender wasn’t particularly compatible.

If you do own a Blendjet, you can make this smoothie, but you will need to add an extra 1/2 cup of coconut milk.
