If the smoothie is too thick add more almond milk 2 tablespoons at a time until the desired consistency is reached. To thicken the smoothie add more ice 1/4 cup at a time until the consistency you prefer is reached.
Dairy-Free Smoothie: This smoothie is already dairy-free, but for a less creamy smoothie, you can change the almond milk for water.

Toppings: Add some delicious and healthy granola to the top of your smoothie or some additional coconut flakes and chia seeds.
