Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

There are numerous different ways you can customize this smoothie recipe.

While you can absolutely choose to customize it yourself, I would like to share some of my favorite variations I recently tried and loved!

Who knows, you might get inspired!

  1. No Banana: If you are not a banana fan, you can substitute the banana in the recipe for mango or pineapple. Just make sure they are frozen.
  2. Extra Thickness: Use frozen watermelon chunks instead of fresh ones for a thicker creamier smoothie. Do note that you may need to use a food processor rather than a blender to successfully blend.
  3. Creamier Effect: If you are not avoiding dairy, add 1/2 cup of thick yogurt for a creamier smoothie and higher protein.
  4. Nutty Delight: Incorporate a tablespoon of nut butter (I tested cashew butter) for a creamy nutty taste.
  5. Swap The Smoothie Base: If you don’t have coconut water, you can use vanilla almond milk, or even simply plain water.

Suitable Blenders:

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

If you own the 3 blenders marked as not suitable for this recipe, you can still make this smoothie.

You will just need to adjust the recipe slightly.

Instead of using only 1/3 cup of coconut water, use 1 cup. This allows the blenders to work through the ingredients better.

However, this means the smoothie won’t come out as thick.
