NOTE:

  • You can use any nondairy milk or even regular milk in place coconut milk
  • You can use plain hung yogurt in place of greek yogurt. 
  • I do not like adding ice in my smoothies as ice waters down the smoothie. That's why I have used frozen fruits. You can use fresh fruits too and if you wish you can cut them and freeze them urself for 2 hours and use them in your smoothies.
