Can I use fresh berries instead of frozen?
Of course! You can use fresh berries instead of frozen. However, using frozen berries will give your smoothie a thicker and colder texture.
Can I replace plant milk with water?
Although plant-based milk adds creaminess to the smoothie, you can replace it with water if you prefer a lighter option. Note that taste and texture may vary.
Can I add other ingredients to customize the smoothie?
Of course! Feel free to experiment and add other ingredients, such as spinach, kale or protein powder, to customize the smoothie according to your preferences and nutritional needs.
