Since I'm allergic to bananas, what might be a good substitute to still make the smoothie silky like you said the bananas do?

I often use avocado's in my shakes, and this gives it a silky, smooth texture much like a standard dairy milkshake.
For me, just a 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado is enough to give it the right texture.

when i mention avocado someone always says "oh that is too much fat" yet almonds have 7x more fat per 100g serving.

p.s. i have never heard of anyone being allergic to bananas.OP What type of allergy do you have when you eat bananas?

My favorite, and quick breakfast: Pureé some strawberries or blueberries. Juice 5 or 6 oranges. Add Vega protein powder. Blend. Drink. Be happy.

It's best to do the berries first since they float.

Rob, Taro is a good substitute for bananas to make things creamy in a smoothy as well. Hmm what else, similar to bananas, do you know if you are allergic to plantains as well? Those are pretty close to banana-like. I would go with the taro for a try though. For a lot of people if we are allergic to something then our body rejects the taste and smell so plantains even if you aren't allergic to them might not be the best idea.

1 scoop Vega One chocolate, 1 scoop tropical strawberry Shakeology, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, and water.

I mostly just do fruit smoothies and supplements, helps with hydration and is far better than caffeine IMHO.

HELP, I discovered cookie butter. It is vegan but it is super unhealthy made of margarine and lots of oils and sugar. So...I have a healthy breakfast of quinoa bread, bananas, and celery....but I cover them all in cookie butter hahaha. Someone help this sweet tooth out with a super sweet healthier alternative. I like almond butter but it just doesn't satisfy the sweet tooth :)
