When it comes to adding liquids to smoothies, I often add almond milk, coconut milk, or just plain water. Sometimes I even add green tea in smoothies, ideally in the morning as a coffee replacement.
I’ve been focussing on (unsweetened) almond milk lately, as it has fewer calories than dairy milk and coconut milk, but it still makes my smoothies creamy and tasty. Plus, with almond milk, I find that my smoothies are lighter while still bringing out the flavors of the other ingredients better.
The best part of having a good blender in your kitchen is the experimenting with different fruits and vegetables that you would otherwise not eat.
Over the years, I have created many green smoothie recipes, some worked well, while others turned out to be a complete fail. But that’s the fun of having a blender. Just keep experimenting with recipes and ingredients and see what works best for you.
One of my absolute favorite tropical fruits is dragon fruit. The flavors, the texture, dragon fruit just ticks all the boxes for me.
Dragon fruit can be hard to find, but I’m lucky to live near a grocery store that often sells exotic treats such as dragon fruit. Sometimes I buy them in bulk so I can share them with others, but also to blend them in smoothies.
