Ingredients for chocolate cherry smoothie

We almost always get asked what can be substituted for the banana for smoothies. The banana makes the smoothie thick and creamy and adds sweetness. If you want to replace the banana, you could swap it with some frozen cauliflower. The cauliflower will give it the right texture while adding in some extra nutrition! However you might want to add a tablespoon of maple syrup to account for the loss of sweetness from the banana.

Tips for Making Smoothies

  1. You can make your own smoothie packs to make smoothie making a breeze! See this post for more information on how to do that.
  2. Use frozen fruit! Both the cherries and the banana should be frozen here to get the right texture on the smoothie.
  3. If your smoothie is too thick you can add in a 1/4 cup of almond milk or water at a time to get it creamy. If it’s too thin, add in some more frozen fruit or ice.

      Yum thats awesome. Chocolate covered cherries rule.

    4. Sounds like a great on-the-go type snack/drink. Have you ever substituted any other fruits in there instead of cherries? Also…love how you show the benefits of coconut oil and almond milk!! Those are two ingredients that I wish so many more people knew about!

      What perfect timing. I have a big bag of frozen cherries in my freezer and was looking for ideas. Thank you !! Question about the cauliflower, if you use frozen cauliflower in a smoothie, can you use it straight out of the bag/uncooked?

    6. Randy says:

      I just made this and it is absolutely delicious. I added some frozen kale and I did buy the cocoa linked in your recipe. Delicious!!

      Usually I am not a big Cherry fan, but this blog makes me want to try it out. I am a big smoothie person. Usually packed with antioxidants and protein for after the gym. BUT, I am going to try this one to get out of my comfort zone. Thanks Lexi!

      We have a banana allergy and so many smoothie recipes have banana. Thank you for the substitution idea. We usually use plain greek yogurt as a substitute.
