Banish the Bland - Liven Up Your Favorite SmoothiesLet’s face it, making the same smoothie recipe over and over gets boring.

Aren’t you getting tired of that strawberry-banana smoothie?

There are only so many times you can repeat that same recipe before you’re tired of it.

It’s time to liven things up a little and put a new spin on the old recipes. That’s the beauty of smoothies – you can alter them in any way to match your likes and dislikes.

Let’s take a look at several ways you can liven up those old standards and add a little pizzazz.

Honey

It only takes a drizzle of this natural sweetener to jazz things up. Your taste buds will dance with delight. Honey adds sweetness without heaping on the guilt.

Local honey is also known to reduce allergy symptoms for some people. Find a good honey and use just a touch for great results.

Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables

What better way to add a new twist to an old recipe than by throwing in fresh seasonal produce. Depending on your region, choose local crops that are at the height of their growing season.

If you have a garden or an orchard, great. If not, find a good farmers’ market and stock up on whatever the farmers are picking. Then, go home and get creative with that standard smoothie recipe of yours.

Different Base

Most smoothies call for fruit juice, milk, or yogurt as the base. You can still use these but with a twist. Instead of regular milk, try almond milk or rice milk.

Instead of regular yogurt, try Greek yogurt, or even cottage cheese. Instead of fruit juice, try green tea. Yes, and even coffee makes a good base for many smoothie recipes. Think ‘frappuccino’ and you have the idea.

Texture

Smoothies are supposed to be smooth after all, isn’t that their name? But that gets boring after a while, too. Mix things up and add some texture to a smoothie with oats or nuts.

You’ll not only enjoy the texture, but your smoothie will also be more filling and nutritious.

Spices

For those of you who aren’t afraid to spice things up, try adding cayenne, cumin, jalapenos, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, or other spices you normally like to cook with. You’ll have to play around with the combinations and the amounts.

Start small and add more as you blend. Once you get the taste-testing part done, then finish blending and enjoy your new spicy sensation.

There you have it – simple ways to liven up your favorite smoothie recipes. The beauty of smoothies is that you can alter them in any way, so what are you waiting for?

Start changing things up with different bases, texture, spices, honey, and whatever is in season. Create delightfully delicious concoctions right now by putting a new spin on that old recipe.
