1. Greek Yogurt :
I do not believe in using fat free/low-fat ingredients. But depending on your diet, you can use them if needed. Regular homemade yogurt
can be used but it doesnt provide as much creaminess as greek yogurt.
2. Raw Milk:
We consume raw milk, hence I tend to use it in my smoothies. But if going raw is not your thing, you can pasteurize it yourself - simply bring it to a boil or heat it until you see bubbles along the sides of your pan. Or you can use whatever milk you have on hand. If Vegan
, replace it with Soy milk, almond milk etc. Or think water or fruit juices like apple, orange etc
3. Wheat Germ:
It has a chockfull of nutrients and hence finds its way into my cooking in some form or the other. If you are not comfortable with Gluten/ are Gluten Free
1. Vegan Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie without Yogurt:
Use a mix of frozen and fresh fruit along with yogurt subs like almond milk
, coconut milk
etc for a creamy flavor. You can use just water, coconut water or orange juice
2. Strawberry Pineapple Banana Smoothie Bowl:
Throw in an additional banana for a more creamier smoothie. Or else you can add a sliced banana as topping along with other options like - chia seeds, toasted coconut, granola, dried fruits and/or nuts.
