Yikes!! And I’m the sister in Northern Cal- I’m afraid to ask K what the heat is like in the Fresno area. I am a lover of sunshine and heat, but even this triple digit week is enough to send me into daydreams about winter and those chilly nights when hot chocolate sounded like heaven…
But then I thought, smoothies are the ‘hot chocolate’ of summer! I was over at my mom’s house the other day because my little sister and I had a dog-walking date planned. However, we had absent-mindedly planned it for the afternoon which translated into a very. hot. walk.
We immediately went for the fridge and came up with a smoothie recipe that is SO incredibly refreshing and actually quite healthy as well!
We plopped down on the couch and slurped these babies down in a matter of minutes. Which is okay, because it only takes about 2 minutes to throw the ingredients in a blender and make another one. With all that fresh fruit that’s abounding this season, I wouldn’t be surprised if you already have all of the ingredients in the house!
Also, it’s not green like the other smoothie I told you guys about. So if you just couldn’t get past the color of the spinach smoothie, this should be right up your alley!
Hope you guys are having a fantastic summer, and enjoy! K gave me a craft challenge to do so prepare yourselves…. this might not be pretty.
So Fruity Summer Smoothie
serves 2 generously, 3 appropriately
3 cups mixed fruit salad (we used watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and bananas)
1 single serving container of fruity yogurt
1 1/2 cup ice
2-3 Tbsp cold water for thinning
Put all ingredients (in that order) in the blender and blend away! Add as much or as little water as you need for the desired consistency. If you have different types of fruits, throw em in. Pretty much can’t go wrong with this! I was a little uneasy about the watermelon tasting right, but man, it hit the spot. Slurp away!
