Keep Things Interesting in Your Blender With These Easy Smoothie Add-Ins

Kerry Roberts

We believe that when healthy routines are made easy, they're easier to stick with. But sometimes it can be fun to mix it up a bit in the blender (#punintended), and our smoothies make a fantastic base for some experimentation. This week's challenge? Incorporate some easy ingredient additions to our smoothie kits to shake things up a little.  But, of course, there was a catch: every add-in had to bring a nutrient-dense punch to your smoothies while adding a subtle-yet-interesting flavor. Here's what passed the test: 

Everipe Flavor: Cocoa Mojo
Add-Ins: Coconut Milk and Walnuts 

Three words: German Chocolate Cake. Creamy coconut milk adds to the decadent feel of Cocoa Mojo, while the walnuts add another layer of yummy flavor (and heart-healthy omega's) to make you feel like you're indulging in Grandma's signature dessert.

Everipe Flavor: Strawberry Bananza
Add-Ins: Tart Cherry Juice and Collagen Peptides

From Team Everipe Member Lindsey: "My husband (somehow) learned his favorite football team uses tart cherry juice and collagen peptides in their smoothies. He had me pick these items up for his own smoothies...because that is what super fans do, right? The combo has become a staple in his post-workout Strawberry Bananza--the tart cherry juice tastes amazing!"  

Everipe Flavor: Tropical Zing
Add-Ins: Romaine Lettuce & Cayenne Pepper 

Spoiler alert: this is not your usual green smoothie. A refreshing and updated take on the classic berries/spinach/almond milk combo, romaine adds a fiber-filled punch of freshness and a hint of earthiness, while the sprinkle of cayenne ups the "kick" that Tropical Zing is known for.  

  • 1 Tropical Zing Smoothie Kit
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (water or coconut water work great too!) 
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 heart of romaine, washed and chopped 
  • Sprinkle of cayenne pepper (to taste)

Everipe Flavor: Unbelievaberry
Add-Ins: Almond Butter and Cinnamon 

If you're looking to up the protein and fats in your smoothie, nut butters are a great choice. Almond butter (raw works best, but any roasted variety will do!) adds substance to the smoothie with a a hint if welcomed nuttiness,
while cinnamon adds a spicy, warm kick.
