Smoothie Add-In Ideas

Toss in add-ins. This is the time to add anything extra to give your smoothie a nutritional boost!
  • Nut Butters: give it a boost of nutrition and nutty flavor with a scoop of peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter.
  • Seeds: add in a sprinkle of flax seeds, chia seeds, or hemp hearts.
  • Grains: add a scoop of quick oats or even cooked brown rice or quinoa.
  • Protein: make it more filling with a scoop of your favorite protein or collagen powder.
  • Make it creamy: Cream cheese and cottage cheese make an incredibly thick and creamy smoothie.
  • Veggies: a handful of fresh spinach or kale, half an avocado, or even a handful of frozen cauliflower is a great way to add some extra nutrition. Cauliflower and avocado also create an extra smooth and creamy texture!
  • Add frozen fruit. Make sure you’ve let it thaw for 5–10 minutes before this step so the blender does not get hung up.
  • Sweeteners: prefer it sweeter? Try adding a drizzle of honey, pitted Medjool dates, or stevia.
  • Extracts: add a dash of vanilla, almond or maple extract to add some extra flavor.
  • Spices and Powders: try Acai powder, maca powder, spirulina, cinnamon, nutmeg, you name it.
  • Blend it up! Start the blender on low so the ingredients slowly get mixed together. Once it’s churning, ramp up the speed to medium and blend until everything looks smooth and creamy.
