Recipe Modifications & Ingredient Swaps

  1. You can play around with the types of fruit in this smoothie – for instance, using just watermelon + banana or just watermelon + strawberries. If you use only two fruits, simply increase the amounts a little bit till it tastes good 🙂
  2. Instead of almond milk, you can use any milk or milk alternatives that you like. Just aim for an unsweetened one, if possible.
  3. If you want to increase the protein content of this smoothie, feel free to add a scoop of your favourite protein powder. An unflavoured or vanilla version would work best. I added some plain collagen powder to mine!
  4. You can swap the greek yogurt with a vegan alternative if needed. Do note that this will likely lower the protein content though. In this case, you may want to use a soy milk as your milk choice to increase protein!
  5. Instead of chia seeds, you can use other seeds like hemp, pumpkin, or flax.
  6. While it will change the colour of this smoothie, feel free to add a handful of spinach for some extra greens. Spinach has a super neutral flavour and won’t alter the flavour profile too much!

How To Make Ahead (Meal Prep!)

If your mornings are a rush, rest assured that you can make a smoothie the night before! This smoothie will keep for about 1-2 days in the fridge. Simply pour it into a jar with a lid and refrigerate. Note: separation is normal – just give the jar a good shake before drinking.

In case you’re wondering – yes, you can freeze smoothies! It’s a great way to include them in your breakfast meal prep.

One way to do this is by pouring any extra smoothie into silicone ice cube trays or muffin tins and placing them in the freezer. Once frozen, you can pop out the smoothie “cubes” and store them in a freezer-safe bag. Just thaw them for a few hours or the night before you want the smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups almond milk, unsweetened (or other plant-based milk)
  • 2.5 cups watermelon, fresh or frozen *see notes
  • 1/2 banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup avocado chunks, fresh or frozen
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 lime, juice only
  • 10 leaves fresh mint

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, starting with the almond milk.
  • Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Feel free to adjust flavours or amounts of liquid until desired taste/consistency is reached. Enjoy!

Notes

*FRESH VS FROZEN FRUIT: I used frozen watermelon, banana, strawberries, and avocado in this recipe. While the smoothie will work with fresh fruit, I find that frozen fruit really helps to make the texture extra thick and creamy. You’ll also get a nice cold smoothie without having to water it down with ice!
  • I typically purchase strawberries + avocados pre-frozen, but you can always freeze them yourself (just remove those avocado skins first + cut into pieces!)
  • For the watermelon + banana, simply remove the skin/peel and chop into pieces. Store in a freezer-safe container or bag and place in the freezer. Do this the night before, so that you have frozen chunks of fruit ready to go in the morning!
 
*RECIPE MODIFICATIONS: here are some ways you can switch up the ingredients to meet your needs:
  • You can play around with the types of fruit in this smoothie – for instance, using just watermelon + banana or just watermelon + strawberries. If you use only two fruits, simply increase the amounts a little bit till it tastes good 🙂
  • Instead of almond milk, you can use any milk or milk alternatives that you like. Just aim for an unsweetened one, if possible.
