Smoothie Variation And Recipe Notes

There are many different ways you can make this smoothie. I have listed some optional substitutions below, just in case you want something slightly different.

  • The Berries: Instead of strawberries, you can use blueberries or another berry of choice.
  • No Banana: If you are not a fan of bananas, you can substitute the banana for mango instead.
  • The Greens: Instead of spinach, you can use other leafy greens of choice, such as kale.
  • The Base: If you are not vegan, you can use dairy milk, or try coconut milk. It adds lots of extra creaminess to this smoothie.
  • Boost The Protein: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for 20-25g extra protein!

Recipe Equipment:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

If you use pistachio butter instead of whole pistachio nuts, the smoothie can be blended using a low-speed blender.

However, if you use whole pistachios (shelled of course) you will require a much more powerful blender.

I recommend using the Ninja Blender, AmzChef, Vitamix & Nutribullet.


Type Of Diet Suitable
Raw Food-Friendly

If you use homemade unsweetened and unprocessed almond milk, the smoothie will be suitable for a raw vegan diet and the paleo diet.
