Recipe Variations And Boosting The Nutrition

Because I kept this banana and pear smoothie for weight loss very simple, I only used 3 ingredients.

If you want to add more ingredients for more flavor and nutrients, consider the following options:

  • You can add cocoa powder, and make this banana pear smoothie chocolate flavored.
  • Using coconut milk instead of almond milk can make this smoothie more tropical flavored.
  • For a more rich smoothie, add a tablespoon of nut butter. Almond butter can be great.
  • If you are not vegan, adding 1/2 cup of yogurt can make this smoothie creamier and higher in protein.

I recently made a spinach and a pear smoothie, which created an iron-rich smoothie.

Consider also adding a handful of organic spinach for some iron.
