Trying to beat the heat this summer? Why not forget the ice-cream and try a fruit smoothie? Fruit smoothies are a great way to incorporate fresh fruits (and vegetables) into your diet and make for a refreshing summer treat!
Fruit smoothies are made with a blender, and there are plenty of smaller blenders on the market today! Some are even small enough for a single serving.
To make a smoothie, simply put clean, cut up fruit and water (or milk) into the blender. Feel free to add vegetables as well, such as cucumbers or celery. This gives the smoothie a refreshing taste and a great way to include fresh veggies into your day. Add ice as well to make it cold!
You can even make this a fun activity with your toddler. Have them choose the fruit they want to include and experiment with different mixes of fruit.
Here are some simple mixes we like:
Smoothie #1: Pinkie Mix
Milk (or Water)
Smoothie #1: Green Monster
Smoothie #3: The Everything Shake
What have you made so far? Any favourites? Yum! Summer treats just got a bit better.
