Substitutions and Suggestions for Banana Berry Smoothies
- The nutritional benefits of these smoothies are amazing! With the blend of bananas, strawberries, blueberries and orange juice, you get a boost of potassium, vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, folic acid and antioxidants among others.
- Add Greek yogurt to this smoothie instead of regular, which will add extra protein and probiotics.
- Using frozen fruit will help make this berry smoothie thicker and help it stay colder than using fresh fruit.
- Speaking of frozen fruit, freeze your bananas to use in this smoothie. Peel bananas, then slice them into large slices. Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper, then stick it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once the banana slices are frozen, pop them into a plastic baggie and put back in the freezer. Then you have frozen bananas on hand any time you need them!
- Add avocado for an extra creamy texture. You won’t taste the flavor!
- Try adding peaches, raspberries, blackberries, mango, pineapple or any fruit you like. With this simple recipe you can make dozens of refreshing smoothies!
- If you don’t mind the color, you can toss in a handful of baby spinach leaves for added vitamins.
- Make these berry smoothies the night before! Blend the ingredients together, then pour into freezer safe jars and freeze. Allow to defrost on the counter for a few hours before serving.
