Best Smoothie Recipes To Get You Through This Blazing Summer
Summer can drain us due to the heat that leaves us dry and tired. As summers are so HOT HOT, we need something COOL to chill us and also give us the energy to battle the hot temperature. With summer in full swing, having an arsenal of good smoothie recipes is important.
The great thing about smoothies is that there isn't any one particular way to make them – depending on the fruits you have available at home or whatever you like at the store, a smoothie can be made in as many ways as possible. Smoothies are also quick to make, as long as you've got a blender with you!
So, without further ado, let's get to those smoothie recipes.
1) Mango Milkshake
Mangoes are the fruit of the season, so it's obvious we'd start with it. Take a mango, peel it and chop the fruit into medium pieces. Take the blender and put the mango pieces in it. Add one cup of chilled milk, vanilla ice-cream, 2-3 drops of vanilla essence and two tablespoons of condensed milk. Blend until smooth. Your Mango Milkshake is READY!
2) Strawberry Blackberry Smoothie
Take a blender, add the berries, milk, 2 teaspoons of sugar, ice-cream (preferably strawberry or blackberry flavor), add vanilla essence. Pour it into a glass or a jar, garnish with some berries on top.
3) Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie
If you don't enjoy breakfast, how about all of the delicious flavor of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a smoothie? Follow the same procedure and ingredients – Blender, ice-cream, milk, and vanilla.
4) Banana Orange Pineapple Smoothie
This one is the best of all, simplest yet full of different flavors. Banana giving the texture, orange giving the tangy citrus flavor along with pineapple's acidity. It creates a perfect balance.
5) Sweet Basil Melon Cucumber Smoothie
When you put together the most refreshing ingredients of all, basil, watermelon and cucumber, it's so refreshing. It fills you with so much energy. For even better taste and power, add mint. It brings the smoothie to a whole new level.
