Since I’ve obviously got smoothies on the brain, I wanted to share some “Old Faithful” recipes that I make pretty regularly, which are delicious and great for the ol’ bod.
- Basic green smoothie: Frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, generous handful of spinach leaves, water. That’s it. Obviously you can sub in/add different fruits, or switch out the greens (although I can’t stand kale so I typically use spinach, as it is much more mild in taste). But it’s a simple, tasty recipe that gets the job done.
- Tropical fruit smoothie: Frozen strawberries, frozen ripe bananas, almond milk, and a tiny bit (say, 1/8 tsp or less) of coconut extract (can also use vanilla). For an extra tropical feel, add in some chunks of frozen pineapple (oooh la la!).
- Peanut butter choco banana smoothie: Frozen ripe bananas, almond milk, 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and a teaspoon of cocoa powder. You can omit the cocoa powder too, and it’s just as delicious. OMG this is like a dessert, it’s so good.
Obviously you can blend pretty much anything, so this is just a teeny tiny list of delicious smoothies. But they are my go-to smoothies because they are so easy and have few (and relatively inexpensive) ingredients.
