Other variations to try: The variations you can have with a smoothie are really endless. Try using different frozen fruits depending on what’s on sale. I like mixed peaches, pineapple and strawberry. I LOVE cherries, but they’re usually expensive and higher in sugar. My daughter likes strawberry banana. You can also mix up the greens based on what you have like spinach, power greens or mixed greens.
