There’s nothing like tropical smoothie on a hot summer day. Whether it’s after a morning workout or while you’re lounging by the pool, smoothies are always the perfect way to cool down. Below are just a couple of my favorite smoothie recipes that are both delicious and nutritious.
Raspberry Banana Smoothie:
1/2 cup fresh raspberries (frozen would be fine too)
1 ripe banana, peeled and frozen
1/2 cup original almond milk
1 (5.3 oz) container strawberry or raspberry Greek yogurt
1/4 cup water
3 – 4 ice cubes (optional)
Mix all of the ingredients together in blender. Feel free to experiment with adding additional fruits.
1 cup original unsweetened almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
8-10 ice cubes
This smoothie is awesome because it taste like a Wendy’s Frosty but it’s actually really good for you. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix well.
1 medium banana, previously peeled, frozen and quartered
1/2 cup mixed frozen berries
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
1 heaping Tbsp natural, salted peanut butter
1/2 – 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 cups fresh spinach
This Smoothie is extremely good for you and the perfect way to start out your day. Mix all ingredients in a blender and enjoy.
