    I’m allergic to strawberries (the acid). Could I leave the strawberries out? Instead of soy milk could I substitute Greek nonfat yogurt or almond milk?

      Smoothies are extremely customizable. You can certainly leave out the frozen strawberries, but you may want to replace them with more frozen peaches, another frozen fruit, or a few ice cubes. This will help maintain the right consistency for your smoothie. To replace the 3 cups of soy milk with Greek yogurt, we suggest 2 cups of Greek yogurt + 1 cup of water. This will help prevent your smoothie from becoming too thick. Adjust ratios to your preference!
