Tasty Variations And Recipe Notes

You could try so many variations of this smoothie, should you want to.

I love experimenting, and if you are like me, you like to switch a thing or two and make the recipe better suited to your taste.

I have been making this recipe for months, allowing me to try new things each time.

Some tasty variations include:

  1. No Banana Variation: Swap the banana in the recipe for mango, or even berries. I tested blueberries and I found they worked very well with the other ingredients.
  2. Protein Boost: Incorporate 1/2 cup of yogurt if you are not dairy-free, or a scoop of protein powder for more protein.
  3. Power Up On The Greens: You can add even more greens to the smoothie, by incorporating an extra handful of baby spinach or kale.
  4. Nutrient Boost: Add a tablespoon of chia seeds or cashew butter for additional nutrients and healthy fat.
  5. Tangier Twist: Squeeze a lemon in your blender for a tangier twist that cuts through the sweetness of the banana and pineapple beautifully.

I personally found that using Nutribullet 600 with this specific recipe was the easiest.

This is only true if you are only making a single-serving smoothie.

If you are planning to double or triple the recipe, I recommend that you use a higher-capacity blender.
