Ingredient Substitutions And Suggestions
The ingredients we listed above, no matter how simple, will give you an exquisite mixed berry protein smoothie. But what's also great about it is you can tweak a few things here and there.
Frozen berries will no doubt give you the best consistency and flavor. You can use frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, and frozen strawberries. But you can also go for a single berry smoothie, meaning you can use one type of berry.
Now, if you don't have frozen berries, you can use fresh berries too. And in place of frozen fruit, you can add some ice cubes instead.
As for the milk, unsweetened almond milk will give you a nice flavor. But you can also go with cashew milk. If you want non-dairy milk, you can opt for soy milk or oat milk. Really, whatever floats your boat!
In place of the vanilla protein powder, you can go with chocolate protein powder. For even more protein, you can add some Greek yogurt too. As for the sweetness, you can pour some pure maple syrup to your drink to satisfy your sweet tooth.
We can't forget about balance! If you want some acidity, you can add a tablespoon of lime juice or lemon juice as well.
