What Can Replace Yogurt in a Smoothie?

There are quite a few options available for those of you who want to make a smoothie without yogurt.

  • One of the most obvious choices is to replace yogurt with milk – or any other kind of liquid.
  • Another option is soy milk. It can be used in place of regular dairy milk, although it doesn’t taste quite as good, and it tends to make the smoothie a bit thicker.
  • Canned coconut milk is another alternative. However, you have to be careful with this option since it contains many fat and calories.
  • If you are looking for anything with hardly any calories, then almond milk or rice milk will work great.

How to Store and Reheat Your Mango Smoothie/Lassi

If you don’t plan on drinking your smoothie right away, make sure to store it in an airtight container (mason jars work great). Your drink will become soggy if left exposed to the air. I recommend that you wait until you’re ready to have your smoothie before placing your ice cubes in the blender.

It is better to blend all of your other ingredients initially and then add the ice a little bit at a time. Otherwise, if you put all the ice cubes in first, your drink will become too watery.

This mango smoothie recipe can be made the night before for breakfast or as a healthy snack. To reheat your mango smoothie, place it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until the ice cubes are melted, and you can enjoy it cold again.

How do You Make a Smoothie Without Yogurt or Blender?

If you don’t own a blender, you can throw all your ingredients (except the ice) into a mason jar and shake it like crazy until everything is well mixed.

You can also blend your smoothie with an immersion blender. However, this usually takes longer than mixing with a regular blender due to the limited capacity of immersion blenders. If you don’t have yogurt on hand, you can use any fat-free liquid instead.
