It's HOT outside. REALLY HOT! So, here are a few recipes to help you cool off. These are easy and nutritious. You can use either a blender or food processor. If you have a hand held blender that you stick down in the cup then I would choose recipes that don't have frozen fruit in them.

Smoothies are a great way to get some nutrition in kiddos who are under the weather, too.

Experiment! You will see that all of these recipes are very different and you will be successful with a hundred combinations of any of these.

Red Smoothie

Flu Fighter Smoothie

Ashley's Smoothie

Peach Melba Smoothie

Peach Passions Smoothie

Tropical Treat Smoothie

Nectarine and Strawberry Smoothie

OR, just throw whatever fruit you have on hand (frozen or fresh) in the blender with some yogurt, pomegranate/orange/cranberry juice, sugar/honey and maybe some ice and see what you come up with.

CHALLENGE: Create your own smoothie or try one of these and let me know how it turns out.

Please send me your favorite smoothie recipe/creations!

Happy blending!



  1. funny because 2 weeks ago I bought a NEW BLENDER for the sole purpose of SMOOTHIES!!
    I've been making peach and strawberry...
    1/2cup yogurt...peach/vanilla/ strawberry ** which ever
    6 oz pineapple or peach mango juice
    Frozen peaches or Strawberries 1 cup
    BLENDERIZE and enjoy!!
    Great treat for the kiddos....instant "shake"
    ** Can always add a fresh bannana in w/ Strawberry flavor...yummy and Lots of potassium for the workout

  2. Thanks for the muffins today! They were good I'll have to make them. I shared mine with the kids and they both liked it!! I made the pancake recipe from Deceptively Delicious they were good. I used our orange puree that we made instead of sweet potatoe puree. They had a pumkin pie flavor--yummy!!

  3. What a good idea. We always just open the ice cream container. Smoothies sound more refreshing and a whole lot healthier!
