Here is the famous formula for perfect smoothies:

2) Creamy: Add an element that will make the texture of your smoothie more interesting.
Examples of creamy elements: Plant-based yogurt, silky tofu, or frozen bananas without the peel.
3) Fruits: They are perfect for bringing a touch of sweetness, but also to cool the smoothie. To do so, favor frozen fruits.
Examples of fruit: peach, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mango, watermelon, banana, etc.
4) Vegetables: To make your smoothie even more complete, it is very interesting to add one to several servings of vegetables. On the other hand, if you are afraid they will take over the taste, know that there are options of vegetables with a more neutral flavor. Prefer these, and they will go unnoticed.
Examples of vegetables with neutral taste: cauliflower and zucchinis.
Example of vegetables whose balances well with the sweet of the fruit: avocado, spinach, kale, and cucumber.
5) The essential element to avoid being hungry one hour after your smoothie: Protein Powder! It will perfectly complement your smoothie in addition to giving it a last punch of flavors. Prioritize a protein powder that will have no aftertaste and powdery/chalky texture. For this, Vegan Pro proteins are perfect and are available in several exciting flavors.
6) Extra Flavors: These elements are there to bring a touch of extra flavor to your smoothies. This step is not mandatory but can make all the difference.
Examples of flavors to add cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla essence, cinnamon, fresh ginger, fresh mint, nut butter, etc.
