I’m a smoothie fan year round, but for those of you who only like cold drinks in the summer, I thought I’d share my favorite simple and clean smoothie recipes with you.
There’s a science behind my madness:
1 frozen banana for sweetness (I wait until my bananas are too brown for me to eat raw and then rather than waste them, I freeze them. The older they are the sweeter they get)
1 cup frozen fruit
1/2 cup milk or soy milk (I prefer soy milk, it makes smoothies really creamy!)
1/2 cup all natural juice
1 TBSP flax seed (for intestinal health) *Optional
1-2 cups fresh baby spinach (for health – your smoothie won’t be as pretty, but you’ll be iron fortified) *Optional
If you use this formula, you can’t go wrong! Play around with fruit and juice combinations and then share with the rest of us what you create!
My favorite pairings:
* Blueberries and Pomegranate Juice
* Peaches and Orange Juice
* Strawberries and Orange Juice
My husband’s favorite pairing:
* Mango and Orange Juice
Do you have a smoothie formula? What are your favorite smoothie recipes?
Cheers to health and sweet mornings!
