Substitutions, Recipe Add-Ins & Tips

Some ingredients can easily be substituted for other ingredients, without having to compromise on taste.

On top of that, you can also add additional ingredients for boosted nutrition.

These variations have been tested by me, so rest assured, they work well in this smoothie!

Some substitutions include:

  • Use spinach instead of kale: Any other leafy green can work well in this smoothie. I also recommend that you use frozen leafy greens, for added freshness!
  • Add Mango Instead of Pineapple: If pineapple is not available to you, you can use mango, or even berries instead of pineapple.
  • Use flaxseeds instead of chia seeds: Flaxseeds are a great substitute for chia seeds, alternatively, you can use oats.
  • Use other milk of choice instead of almond milk: Other plant-based milk can also work well, however, you should also try coconut water in this smoothie. It makes it so refreshing!

Optional Add-ins:

  1. Increase the protein: I tested adding a scoop of unsweetened and unflavored protein powder, and it didn’t impact the taste negatively. 
  2. Add healthy caffeine: Add a 1/2 teaspoon of matcha powder for antioxidants and a boost of caffeine.
  3. Make the smoothie richer: Add a tablespoon of nut butter. I used almond butter, and it made the smoothie more filling and richer.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use frozen fruit: The recipe calls for frozen pineapple chunks. Avoid substituting them for fresh pineapple if possible. Frozen pineapple helps thicken the smoothie.
  • Add the pineapple and kale first: If using a blender, add the kale and pineapple first, since they are the most difficult to blend.
  • Avoid over-blending: If you blend for too long, the smoothie might come out foamy. 2-3 minutes is plenty of blending time.

Best Time To Drink This Smoothie

I managed to lose 0.5 a pound by drinking this smoothie for breakfast as a meal replacement.

This is why I recommend that you do the same. 

I consumed the smoothie for 5 days (Monday to Friday) as a meal replacement, combined with healthier food choices with my other meals.

If you do that too, you should be able to have the same results as me.
