Tips and Tricks for This Recipe
- If you need a recommendation for a blender, I love my Blendtec. Some folks might say the blender doesn’t make a difference but I don’t agree. The blender makes it for me!
- Frozen fruit is a tried and true way to add thickness to a smoothie. You can use fresh or frozen, but the frozen will give you a thicker consistency. Greek yogurt is another way to add thickness (it’s optional).
- You can freeze this recipe in a plastic bag for up to three months, but just the bowl – not the toppings. Just cut those fresh when you’re ready to serve.
NOTE: the nutritional information provided in the recipe is for the entire recipe, assuming you eat the entire bowl by yourself! Divide by 2 if you share.
