3 Summer Smoothie Recipes

3 Summer Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are great year round, but now that the summer heat is in full force – having something cold to drink is especially nice. The best thing about smoothies is you can pretty much put whatever you want in them. And they make a yummy and healthy snack for kids! The mixed berry smoothie is a good one to add fresh spinach to. The banana peanut butter smoothie makes an easy breakfast when you need to eat something on-the-go. You can try out these recipes by tossing the below ingredients into a blender and then tailor them to your own liking from there.

 

Mixed Berry Smoothie

makes 2 servings

1 1/2 cups berries {I use a mix of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries}

1 container of yogurt

1/4 cup orange juice

1 cup ice

 

Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

makes 2 servings

2 bananas

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup ice

 

Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie

makes 2 servings

1 cup watermelon

1 cup strawberries

1/2 cup yogurt

3/4 cup ice

1 tsp lemon juice

 

The consistency of your smoothie will depend on if you use fresh or frozen fruit, so adjust the amount of liquid and ice to your preference. I usually use frozen fruit in mine. As soon as our fruit {especially bananas} starts to get too ripe for my liking, I put them in a bag in the freezer to use for smoothies.

What is your favorite smoothie to make?
