The sun is shining. The pools are open. The farmstands are brimming with fruit.
It’s smoothie time!!
I’ve got two tasty smoothies for you today. The first, my personal favorite, is a Mango Creamsicle Smoothie. It tastes like a creamsicle bar, with the added punch of sweet, fresh mango. The second is a smoothie I like to make for the kids because it’s made with nothing more than fresh fruit and milk. Rather than using ice in my smoothies, I use frozen fruit, which makes a thick smoothie without watering down the flavor. You can purchase bags of chopped, frozen fruit, with no added sugar or syrup. Or chop and freeze your own fruit!
Mango Creamsicle Smoothie
- 1/2 cup Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
- 1/2 cup Orange Juice
- 1/2 cup Frozen Mango Chunks
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Alternately, combine ingredients in a bowl or large measuring cup and blend with an immersion blender. (Makes 1 Smoothie)
Fresh Fruit and Milk Smoothie
- 1 cup of Frozen Fruit, sliced or chopped
- 1/2 Banana
- 1/2 cup Milk
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Alternately, combine ingredients in a bowl or large measuring cup and blend with an immersion blender. Add more or less milk, as necessary, to achieve your desired consistency.
Speaking of frosty treats… There’s still time to get in on the Baked Alaska fun!!! I’ve got my flavors picked out! Anyone else want to join in the adventure?? Just make any version of a Baked Alaska before next Wednesday and let me know how it goes!
