Variations for this recipe

One of my favorite parts about smoothies is how easy they are to customize. There are so many ways to get creative!

Looking to reduce the calories and fat content? Swap out some or all of the coconut milk for another low-carb plant-based milk like almond, macadamia, or hemp. If you aren’t worried about carbs, you could use oat milk as well.

Want to add even more protein? Add a scoop of pea protein powder to give yourself an extra boost.

Craving a different flavor? Use blueberries, strawberries, or mixed berries in your smoothie.

Feel free to have some fun with this yummy and versatile recipe!

Storage

This smoothie is best served fresh. I would not recommend storing it in the refrigerator.

If you only want one serving, simply halve the ingredients to blend up one smoothie. Then, you can save the rest of the ingredients for a delicious vegan smoothie to enjoy later in the week!
