While I’m not fully vegan, I’ve been trying to transition to more of a plant-based diet. As you may know, I have high cholesterol due to genetics, so I try to cut out saturated fat when I can. Luckily, there are so many awesome plant-based foods on the market, it’s easy to add them to your routine! Even if you’re not trying to eat a fully plant-based diet, adding more plant-based meals to your diet is easy!
In fact, this smoothie is a great place to start! You don’t have to go completely vegan to get benefits from a plant-based diet. Make small changes where you can, like adding a serving of fruits and vegetables or swapping regular yogurt for almond milk yogurt alternative!

Tips for the perfect smoothie
- To make your smoothie extra thick, freeze the banana before blending. If you don’t have a high powered blender, slice the banana before freezing, so it’ll be easier to blend!
- If you have trouble blending your smoothie, add a splash of Silk® Almondmilk to get things moving. Add a little bit at a time until it begins to blend. Adding too much liquid will water down the smoothie.
- Be sure the coffee is completely cooled before blending. This recipe is also great with cold brew coffee!
