A Week of Smoothies

Since it is getting so beautiful and summery here , I have taken to having a smoothie for lunch after my workout. It is the best way to  cool down and hydrate.  Using what ever fruit is on sale at the local store keeps me from feeling like I have the same smoothie over and over. When I see fruit at the store, I buy it, chip it up, and put it in the freezer to be dumped into the blender at my earliest convenience. Voila! an ice cold smoothie without watering it down with ice!

Fruit for a week of smoothies:

  • 1 can of Tesco Peaches in juice, divided in half and frozen
  • 1 package of Strawberries, topped and frozen
  • 2 Braeburn Apples, chilled and cored, skin optional
  • 2 tbs Peanut Butter and 2 tbs Nutella OR 4 tbs Peanut Butter
  • 4 Kiwis, skinned, quartered, and frozen
  • 1 bag fresh Spinach, washed, de-stimmed, and frozen
  • 1 package White Grapes, de-stimmed, washed, dried, and frozen
  • 4 Bananas, room temp or frozen

FOR EVERY SMOOTHIE MY BASE IS: 1/2 CUP GREEK PLAIN YOGURT AND 1 CUP MILK. Anything will work though as long as you have around a cup and a half of liquid you are good to go.
