Smoothies are very flexible, so feel free to play with the recipe. If you like the tang of yogurt, add more yogurt and less milk. To avoid dairy, substitute non-dairy milk and yogurt. If you don’t like bananas, throw in a few dates instead. Substitute another nut butter, or use sunflower seed butter if there’s a nut allergy in the family. There’s no limit to the number of combinations that work well for smoothies.
