Smoothie is one of those things which gives a nice payoff for very little effort. A recipe is not needed, just throw in your favorite (blendable) fruits and a little water. Here is one of our favorites… (Since fresh summer fruits are scarce, I have used frozen.)
For 2 big glasses:
1 lg or 2 medium bananas
1/2c frozen blueberries (still frozen, I like the slushy chill that it gives)
1c frozen strawberries (thawed)
1c frozen mangoes (thawed) or 1/2c mango puree
Add the strawberries and mango to the blender first. Then the bananas and blueberries. Blend a little, then add the water. Continue grinding until its a smooth consistency. Add more water if you like. You could also add protein powder or honey, but I think its sweet enough just as it is! Yummy, filling, healthy and quick. What more can you ask?
If you want to get “really” healthy, toss in a handful of baby spinach leaves. Trust me, you won’t notice its there.
