3 Healthy Summertime Smoothie Recipes


Summertime brings some warm and hot days - which makes it difficult to cook and eat hot food! As an alternative to a warm cooked breakfast or lunch, a healthy smoothie can be a good option. But beware of what you put in your smoothie. It's best to use fruits low in sugar and add a veggie or two for the appropriate amount of vitamins and minerals. Also avoid using milk products like yogurt which are often loaded with sugar. Try these 3 tasty recipes that are also good for you:

1. The Green Monster Machine: This green drink is tasty and rich in antioxidants.

-1 Green Apple sliced into bite size pieces

- Healthy handful of Kale leaves (trim off branch, stems)

- 1 Teaspoon of pure Maple Syrup

-- 1/2 of ripe avocado

- 1/3-1/2 cup of ice

- Optional 1/3 cup Almond Milk

Please all ingredients in the blender and serve.

2. Cant-a-Berry Surprise: This is a twist on the common berry smoothie.

- 1 cup of sliced strawberries (without stem)

-1 cup of fresh blueberries

- 1 1/2 cup of sliced cantaloupe (bite size pieces)

-1/2 cup ice

Please all ingredients in the blender and serve.

3. The Muscle Man Treat: This smoothie has more protein, but is still healthy and filled with good fruit.

- 1 - 2 scoops of Muscle Milk Protein Powder (Whey)

- 1 cup of frozen strawberries

-1/2 cup of ice and a splash of water if needed

Place all items in the blender and serve.
