FAQ’s and tips

Substitutes:

  • In place of pineapple juice, you can use coconut water or freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • You can use plant-based protein instead of whey protein. Or you may skip the protein entirely
  • Use frozen fruits. Using frozen mango and pineapple will ensure a thick and creamy smoothie.
  • It is best to drink this smoothie when you make it and not store it. It can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days but it will melt and be on the watery side.

 

What is the best liquid to put in a smoothie

Some options of liquids to use on your smoothie are water, ice, milk, coconut water, coffee, tea, and juices. Going for a healthier option, use coconut water or almond milk. Looking to give your smoothie a protein boost? Use milk products like dairy or non-dairy milk. A nice option we like is pea protein milk. There are so many great options out there.

What yogurt is best for a smoothie

Avoid using high sugar yogurts in your smoothie since your smoothie may already have quite a bit of natural sugars from the fruits you are using. Great options are greek yogurts or plant-based yogurts that are high protein low in carbs. You may use flavored kinds as well depending on what type of smoothie you are making.
