Tips

  • Use natural peanut butter or you can make your own nut butter.
  • Use frozen fruit. This gives the smoothie a more dense and creamy consistency.
  • You can use sweet or sour apples. Apple varieties such as Granny Smith, Gala, or Fuji are ideal for this recipe. For more, check out our article "Types of Apples".
  • Slice the bananas before freezing. Freeze the bananas on a parchment-lined tray. Then store it in an airtight container or freezer bag.
  • Use any type of milk. You can use whole milk or plant-based milk such as almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, cashew milk or soy milk.
  • If you want the smoothie consistency to be more watery, you can use water instead of milk.
  • Use ice to add texture to the smoothie. Add ice to the mix to get a cold and watery consistency. Skip this step if you want a thick and creamy texture.
  • If the smoothie is too thick, add more juice, milk, or ice. If it's too watery, add more frozen fruit.
  • Instead of sugar, use sweeteners such as agave nectar, honey, stevia, maple syrup, or dates.
  • Use fresh juice to reduce the amount of sugar. Ready-made juices contain a lot of sugar.
  • First put the liquid and hard ingredients in the blender.
  • Use coconut milk, strained yogurt, kefir, or almond butter to add a creamy texture.
  • You can add strained yogurt, cashew butter, chia seeds, or vanilla protein powder as protein to the recipe.
  • You can use a food processor or a high speed blender.
