    I don’t have almond milk (or coconut milk) what can I substitute? I don’t have frozen pineapple or bananas. I do have frozen strawberries and a bag of mixed berries. I have fresh bananas. I guess I could freeze them. Should they be frozen peeled or unpeeled? Can I substitute frozen strawberries and mixed berries?

    • Hello,
      Smoothie recipes are very versatile and ingredients can be substituted will many other options. If a smoothie recipe calls for almond or coconut milk, you can just use whatever milk is currently in your fridge. It’s best to peel and quarter the bananas before you freeze them.
