If there was a hierarchy of smoothie ingredients that you must use, bananas would be close to the top! There are many reasons to love bananas but maybe you are allergic, you don’t like them or you just want to smoothie outside of the regular smoothie boundaries.

There are plenty of other ingredients that will still give you that thick and smooth texture of #smoothiegoals that we all know are love. Here are some of our go-to recipes that ditch the banana:
