Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes:

You can swap or add extra ingredients if you like.

I recommend that you try my suggestions below, or, alternatively, you can experiment on your own:

  • Cranberry Type: You can use fresh cranberries and even dried cranberries instead of frozen ones. The texture of the smoothie will change, depending on the type of cranberry you use.
  • No Juice: If you avoid fruit juices, you can use almond milk, coconut water, or plain water instead of cranberry juice.
  • Vegan-Friendly: Swap the Greek yogurt for a vegan alternative. I like using coconut yogurt. Alternatively, use 1 medium-sized banana and adjust the liquid.
  • Add Seeds Or Nut Butter: Make the smoothie more filling and nutritious by either adding a tablespoon of chia seeds, or nut butter!
  • Greens: Add a handful of kale or spinach for extra vitamins.

Recipe Equipment:

I recommend that you use a high-powered blender if possible since we have 3 different types of frozen fruit.

Frozen fruit is hard to break down, which is why its best to use a high-speed blender.

Blenders that I recommend include:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender x
