Notes

Ingredient and dietary restriction substitution ideas

  • Make it dairy free/vegan: Use a coconut or other plant-based yogurt alternative instead of Greek yogurt.
  • Add more protein: Boost the protein content of this smoothie by adding a scoop of your favorite chocolate flavored protein powder.
  • Swap frozen banana for dates. If you don’t have dates on hand, you can use ~1 cup of frozen banana to add natural sweetness instead.
  • Make it beet free. You’ll pick up a very mild, slight beet flavor in this smoothie, so it’s perfectly OK to eliminate the beet from the recipe if you’re not a beet lover. Feel free to add 1/2 – 1 cup of another vegetable, such as frozen cauliflower, instead.
