Other mix-in ideas

  • Make smoothies creamier by replacing apple juice with almond, coconut, or cow’s milk.
  • Blend spinach, kale, and other greens with a bit of water and make a bunch of green ice cubes. You’ll always have greens ready to go for smoothies and other recipes.
  • Flax, chia seeds, or blended dry oatmeal can add bulk and substance to your smoothie and make it more filling.
  • Peel and slice ripe bananas and flash freeze on a cookie sheet for extra-cold, creamy smoothies.
