👩🍳 Expert tips
- If the smoothie becomes too thick, just add a splash or water or soymilk until you get the consistency you desire.
- If you want this to be sweeter, you can add more dates.
- If you don't have dates, use a pear, apple or pineapple for added sweetness.
- Peel the bananas, then cut them up and store in the freezer in a ziploc bag to make sure they're frozen and ready to go.
This mango protein smoothie lasts in a tight fitting jar for about 2-3 days in the fridge. Just shake it up really well before eating.
🍌 Serving suggestions
You can drink this as a smoothie, or eat it as a smoothie bowl and top with your favorite fresh fruit and homemade granola. If you want a fuller breakfast, eat this with a vegan breakfast sausage sandwich, or a sheet pan breakfast burrito bowl.
If you don't like bananas, feel free to keep them out of this recipe. I just add them to add some extra creaminess. Add frozen pineapple instead.
If you're allergic to soy, you can substitute the soy milk and soy yogurt for any other plant based alternatives.
I only chose soy milk and soy yogurt because they contain the highest amount of protein of all of the dairy free yogurts and milks.
If you don't have any medjool dates on hand, you can just substitute with some pineapple, an apple or a pear to make up for the sweetness in the dates.
