Earth Day Smoothies

Thursday, April 22nd is Earth Day!
I noticed a few days ago that Planet Smoothies are celebrating Earth Day, by giving the first 30 customers at each location a free, reusable MacDaddy Mug with the purchase of any 32-ounce smoothie. Planet Smoothie has smoothies for kids as well as smoothies for weight loss , energy and breakfast.

While I do enjoy going out to get smoothies, they are after all delicious, fun and healthy. You can also make your own smoothie and your own smoothie recipes (also known as throwing in anything available).

A Berry Green Earth Day Smoothie

1 banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup of fresh spinach
1 peeled kiwi
1/2 to 1 cup of ice
some water if you think it necessary

Place all ingredients, ice and frozen fruits first, into the blender.
Blend until smooth.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 cups orange juice
1 banana, frozen (it can be fresh if you like)
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar

Add ingredients together in blender and blend until smooth.

Blueberry Fruit Smoothie

Carton of Blueberry yogurt
1 Cup of milk
1 Cup frozen or fresh blueberries, strawberries or peaches
½ cup ice cubes

Add all together in blender and blend until smooth.

Other simple smoothie recipes, which only require throwing all of the ingredients in the blender:

Strawberry Ice

1 cup strawberries, 1 cup orange juice, I cup crushed ice

Honey Melon

1 cup chopped honey dew lemon pieces, 1/4 cup apple juice, tablespoon honey.

Bananas and Fiber
1 banana, 1/4 shredded wheat cereal (or other high fiber cereal), 1/4 cup milk.

Happy Blending!!!
