1. Incorporate chunks of ripe, frozen banana. This will add creaminess and sweetness to your smoothie. 

2. Use milk as the primary liquid. It will help blend everything and add protein. 

3. Add nuts, nut butter, or seeds. These will add protein, healthy fat, and essential minerals to your smoothie.
