There’s something about an ice-cold smoothie on a warm summer night… Actually, there’s something about an ice-cold smoothie any day of the week and time of the year. Smoothies are just yum; plain and simple.
I love a good Smoothie King Angel Food, or one of those Red Bull smoothies from Keva Juice every now and again; but nothing beats a smoothie made in the comfort of your own kitchen. You can add whatever the hell you want, and you know EXACTLY what’s going in it. (Smoothie places are sneaky; always ask about the ingredients if you aren’t sure about something!)
I put together a smoothie earlier this week that was so good I just had to share. It’s a clusterf*** of ingredients, but bare with me; you’ll dig it. I promise.
My severe OCD nature prohibits me from letting fruit spoil. It either gets made into a dessert, or it gets thrown into a smoothie. So, this particular smoothie is just a combination of ingredients I needed to get rid of; and it just happened to taste really good.
Granted, I’m like 99% positive anything with peanut butter in it is going to taste good anyway; but for a smoothie made at home, this is a definite winner. Plus, it’s good for you!
– 1 cup whole, frozen strawberries
– 1 cup fresh blueberries
– 1 whole banana
– 2 tablespoons extra crunchy peanut butter
– splash of milk (nonfat, if you have it)
Add all ingredients to blender, and then blend until you reach your desired consistency. You might need to add more milk if you like your smoothies thin.
**Note: No ice needed. The frozen strawberries give it the perfect icy, creamy texture.
Anything you’d add to make this smoothie better? Do you have a smoothie recipe you’d like to share with me? Send it my way! I’d love to try it, and then share it on the blog.
Stay fit, friends! Xo
