One of my favorite traditions of summer is to make smoothies with fresh fruit. I recommend using frozen fruit so that your smoothie is really cold and refreshing ;)
Here's a simple, delicious smoothie recipe I've been using lately. Enjoy!
- 1/2 c blueberries
- 1/2 c strawberries
- 1/4 c mango
- A splash of acai juice (or 1-2 frozen cubes)
- 1 banana
- One handful of spinach
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1/2 c Greek yogurt
- Optional add ins: 1 Tbsp honey, or 1 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
- Protein powder -- I recommend Illumin8 plant-based organic by Sunwarrior
Blend everything up for 1-2 minutes (Vitamix is the way to go!) and then pour into a glass and sip through a straw. So refreshing!
Yum! What are your favorite summer smoothie recipes?
