    I usually use unsweetened almond milk as the liquid. You could alternately use carrot juice.

    For fat, I add avocado (my fave!), milled flax seed, or nut butter.

    I just use berries as the fruit unless it's for periworkout, in which case I add something carby like sweet potato. I also always add baby spinach.

    i do something similar! i've always used Almond Breeze Original Unsweetened Almond milk... recently threw in an avocado for fat with some frozen blueberries, bee pollen and throw some nuts in. (i always eat mine with a spoon out of an over-sized mug) sometimes i'll add some [clean] protein powder if i feel like i need some extra protein but i usually add greek yogurt too... need to start utilizing my ice tray!

    My usual smoothie is about two cups of spinach, two kale leaves, a handful of snow peas, half a large grated zucchini, a small grated carrot, a handful of frozen berries, a banana, and a cup of homemade yogurt. Occasionally I'll skip the yogurt and add a frozen mango, or something like that.

    I use a 1/2 or a whole depending on what I have. Avocado really takes the place of a banana in a smoothie without adding the carbs and sugar and makes the consistency creamy and smooth

    So delicious coconut milk is diluted to a good consistency and probably wont upset your tummy like coconut cream from the can.
