What to use instead of yogurt in a strawberry banana smoothie

You can replace the yogurt in a smoothie with the following ingredients:

  • Dairy milk: The most widely used ingredient to replace dairy yogurt is dairy milk. You can use full-fat or low-fat milk.
  • Vegan milk: If you are a vegan, you can replace dairy yogurt with either vegan yogurt like soy yogurt or with vegan milk. Vegan milk is plant-based milk that is loaded with nutrients. You can use coconut milk, soy milk, oat milk, or almond milk. I personally love adding unsweetened almond milk as it is a rich source of calcium and other nutrients. If you want nut-free milk, use coconut milk. It will make your smoothie very rich and creamy.
  • Plain Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is considered a healthier version of plain yogurt. It is rich in protein and has a creamier texture. It has a slightly tangy flavor so you may find you need to add some sweetener to your smoothie.
  • Water: If you don’t want to add any dairy or milk-like ingredients, you can add plain water. Since the purpose is to adjust the consistency of the smoothie and to make it drinkable, adding plain water and ice cubs work just fine.
  • Coconut water: Coconut water is a great choice as it provides a bit of a tropical flavor and many minerals and nutrients.
  • Fruit juice: You can also add fresh fruit juice like orange or pineapple juice to your smoothie. Orange juice adds a citrusy touch whereas pineapple juice adds sweetness with a hint of tanginess. Try adding different fruit juices to your smoothie and see which one you love the most.
