Smoothies recipes are always easy to customize to your liking. The coconut milk can be replaced by any unsweetened plant milk or even a few tablespoons of yogurt if you don’t care about the smoothie being vegan.
You can also replace the avocado with 1/2 a banana if you can’t get a ripe avocado that day.
One of the easiest ways to simplify this recipe (and improve the taste at the same time) is to chill the avocado and liquid ingredients beforehand. This will also make this smoothie the perfect treat for warmer summer days.
