how to make a thick smoothie
there are two key factors that affect the creaminess and thickness of this smoothie. the bananas and the amount of almond milk!
make sure you use frozen bananas because that will create the creamy, thick texture.
for the milk, the less milk you add the thicker it will be. i like to add a little at a time because you can always add more but never take any out.
i like my smoothies to be so thick that i could eat them with a spoon if i wanted to.
if you're like me, stick to the recipe below! if you like your smoothies not as thick, add more almond milk until you reach the desired texture.
frequently asked questions
yes! just multiple the amount of each ingredient by the amount of servings you would like to make. if you want to make enough for the work week, multiply everything by 5!
of course! use your preferred protein powder or omit it all together.
if you don't have them on hand and can't get to the store, no worries! you can omit from the recipe completely. the flavor and consistency of the smoothie will not be affected.
store in an airtight container in the fridge. i suggest using a mason jar to store the smoothie or multiple servings if you choose to make more than one.
if you don't plan to eat within 5 days, you can freeze it for up to 1 month.
it will last for up to 5 days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
