If you’re looking for an easy way to stay cool and healthy during the summer, then smoothies could be just the trick. With all of the fresh fruits and vegetables crowding farmer’s markets and grocery stores like strawberries, blueberries, apricots, bell peppers, and cucumbers (just to name a few), there are a wide variety of options to choose from when it comes to concocting these fresh and healthy drinks. But sometimes smoothies seem like a lot of work with all of that measuring and all of those ingredients. Too often it can come across as a hassle. However, this article has come up with eight smoothies that taste fantastic and only require three ingredients!
With a variety of flavors to choose from, there is a smoothie to suit any craving. Feel like something a little less sweet? Try the “Not Easy Being Green” – a quick mash up of green apple, ginger and spinach for a fresh, tart smoothie that will bring the antioxidants and help settle your stomach. Or if you are looking for something on the sweeter side, try strawberries with yogurt and shredded coconut, or maybe mango with coconut milk and chia seeds for a Caribbean twist! These recipes are healthy, tasty, and quick. Keep yourself on track during the hot summer months with these cold, delicious snacks that cool you down and keep your body happy!
All of these smoothies not only include fresh fruits or vegetables packed with vitamins and nutrients, but they can be quickly premeasured and stored in separate bags in the freezer for a quick and effortless snack during the hot afternoons, or when you need an energy boost towards the end of the day. Just pull the bag out and empty the contents into the blender, and in a minute you will be enjoying a refreshing, healthy snack! There’s no need to go to a café or specialty shop where you’ll pay for a smoothie with extra sugar and less-than-fresh ingredients – these recipes make healthy homemade smoothies a breeze!
