Everyday Smoothies

With a busy work schedule, it can be rather difficult to take in the necessary amount of fruits and vegetables.  Lately, we have been making morning smoothies for breakfast and sometimes even dessert smoothies.  Smoothies are an easy and delicious way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in your diet.  The human body has the ability to drink more amounts of fruit compared to eating.  This way, we have been able to incorporate an new element to our morning routine that adds to a healthier lifestyle.

Here’s a look at some of the smoothies we’ve been making recently.

Berry Breakfast Smoothie

Blend a handful each of grapes, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries with one banana, plain yogurt, and soy milk.

I love using berries in the morning when there’s little time and these fruits require minimal preparation.  There’s no chopping necessary – just wash and blend.

Afternoon Mango Banana Smoothie

Blend together one mango with one banana, about 1/4 cup of yogurt and 1/2 cup of almond milk for one serving.

Rich and creamy and just the right amount of sweetness.

Dessert Smoothie

A light refreshing smoothie with plenty of ice is a great way to cool down during the warmer nights.

Blend one cucumber, one apple, 1/2 cup of grapes, and one Korean pear with plenty of ice and some water.
