Customize Your Strawberry Banana Smoothie with These Exciting Ingredients and Additions

A classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie is always a hit, but why not mix things up a little and create your own unique twist? Here’s a list of different ingredients and additions that will elevate your smoothie while keeping it delicious and nutritious:

  • Greens – Add a handful of spinach or kale for an extra dose of vitamins and minerals. These leafy greens blend seamlessly into the smoothie without altering the fruity taste.
  • Nut Butters – For a protein boost and added creaminess, try incorporating a spoonful of almond, peanut or cashew butter.
  • Chia or Flax Seeds – Sprinkle in some chia or flax seeds to amp up the fiber and omega-3 fatty acid content of your smoothie.
  • Protein Powder – If you’re looking to increase your protein intake, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder, whether it’s whey, plant-based or any other type that suits your dietary preferences. Vanilla Nutrisystem Shake Mix would be a super tasty addition.
  • Sweeteners – If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, try adding a touch of honey, maple syrup or agave nectar. You can also use a few drops of stevia for a calorie-free option.
  • Spices – Enhance the flavors of your smoothie with a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or even a dash of cayenne pepper for a spicy kick!
  • Superfoods – Boost the nutritional value of your smoothie by adding superfoods like spirulina, maca powder or goji berries.
  • Avocado – For a richer, creamier texture, toss in a slice of an avocado. This addition also provides healthy fats that help keep you satiated for longer.
  • Oats – Adding a few tablespoons of rolled oats to your smoothie can make it more filling and keep you going throughout the day.
  • Frozen Fruit – Add other frozen fruits like mango, blueberries or raspberries to create new fruity combinations.
