Recipe Variations

While I think you will love the recipe as it is, there are many different ways you can customize it, should you want.

One of the most popular questions on my TikTok regarding this recipe was how to make it without protein powder.

Here is how:

#1. No Protein Powder Variation

To make a high-protein smoothie bowl without protein powder, you have the following options:

  1. Swap the protein powder for 1 cup of Greek yogurt or cottage cheese and increase the berries to 2 cups instead of 1 cup.
  2. For a vegan protein version without protein powder, swap the protein powder with 1/2 cup of silken tofu. And use 1 1/2 cups of frozen berries instead of 1 cup.
  3. Don’t mind powders? If you dislike protein powders but don’t mind other protein sources in the form of powder, I recommend that you use collagen powder

#2. Throw In Some Greens

The second variation you could try to boost the nutrition of this smoothie even more is to add a handful of greens.

I tested adding 1 handful of spinach, and I thought it worked very well in the smoothie.

#3. Nut Free Variation

I love adding nut butters to my smoothies, but a lot of people are allergic.

An alternative to nut butter is avocado, sunflower seed butter, or cottage cheese.

The quantities are as follows:

  1. Avocado – 1/4.
  2. Sunflower Seed Butter – 1 tablespoon.
  3. Cottage Cheese – 1/4 cup.
