Yogurt and Berries Smoothie
This is a great smoothie for breakfast or as a snack during the day. It has a decent amount of protein so it’s perfect for helping you stay full for longer. You can use any type of yogurt you want; vanilla yogurt is a great choice. Mixed frozen berries are an awesome add or use fresh berries whichever you prefer. To make it, blend yogurt with some fresh or frozen blueberries and a little bit of honey (optional).
Banana and Kale Smoothie
If you’re looking for a healthier and more nutritious take on the classic banana and peanut butter smoothie, then this is what you should make instead. This smoothie is great as a snack at any time of the day, or even as a quick and easy breakfast if you need something quick and easy to eat on the go.
To make it, blend a banana with some fresh or frozen strawberries and a handful of kale leaves. If your blender can’t handle the kale leaves whole, you can also blend them up with a little bit of water first.
Mango, Mint and Ginger Smoothie
This is a great smoothie for hot summer days when you’re feeling overheated.
To make it, blend about a cup of frozen mango with a cup of fresh or frozen pineapple and a couple of sprigs of fresh mint. Mint is a great herb for cooling your body down, so it’s perfect in this smoothie. Finish it off with a teaspoon of fresh or dried ginger. Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, so it’s great for keeping your body healthy and happy.
Mixing up smoothies
These hot summer days are the perfect time for smoothie bowls and frozen drinks. You can make these delicious treats with just a blender and some frozen fruit. To make frozen treats, just put your desired amount of frozen fruit (berries, bananas, and/or citrus fruits are perfect) in a blender and add some water to get a creamy consistency. If you want to make a smoothie bowl, just put the frozen fruit in a bowl and add yogurt, granola, chia seeds, and/or other toppings of your choice.
You can even make a healthy, protein packed, and filling breakfast if you make a smoothie bowl. Stay hydrated, cool, and healthy this summer with smoothies. They’re great for breakfast, snacks, or even as meals. The options for flavor combinations are endless; you can make them with just about any fruit or vegetables.
