Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

You can explore some variations of this smoothie that I have tested and enjoyed, should you want to!

Here they are:

  1. Nut-Free Smoothie: Swap the almond milk for oat or soy milk, and use sun butter instead of almond butter. Alternatively, you can use oats or chia seeds.
  2. Boost The Protein: You can increase the protein content even more if you add a scoop of protein powder.
  3. Use Different Fruit: For an even thicker smoothie, you can use banana, mango, or pineapple instead of apple.
  4. Boost Nutrition: Add a handful of greens like spinach for extra nutrients without impacting the flavor.
