Default Smoothies

Who makes smoothies?? When it's super hot here I drink them and they're delish, but I don't have too many recipes.


So far I use unsweetened coconut milk, and either frozen blueberries or mango and organic maple syrup to sweeten.

I have a tiny little blender that makes one serving at a time and it's delicate, so I can't use ice chunks.

Any ideas ?

you can go wild on smoothies any way you can. I love them and make them daily during the summer or when I come back from sports in the evening. I either use yoghurt and sweetener or fresh orange juice and throw in melon or kiwi or strawberries or kiwi.

enjoy

My fave is mango/pineapple with greek yogurt and thinned out with a bit of unsweetened coconut milk.

For a super fast refreshing summer drink I take chunks of watermelon and throw them in the blender with a squeeze of lime, a teaspoon of honey and a couple mint leaves. Yum.

Freezing your fruit before you blend it isn't as hard on your blender as ice is and yields a similar result

You can even use soft tofu for smoothies. I've blended just about anything I could, added in some ground flax seeds and topped with wheat germ. Cherries are marvelous, any citrus is good (except maybe kumquats).

Given that we are about to go into fresh fruit season, just buy what you enjoy fresh from farm stands, blenderize it right away, then pour into ice cube trays. When they're frozen, just pop them into a plastic bag. When you want a smoothie of that particular flavor, just grab a couple of cubes and let 'er rip!
