Did you know? National Smoothie Day is coming up on June 21! Savy Donuts & Smoothie is only six minutes away, but you don’t need to leave the house to celebrate the holiday. Try making a smoothie of your own! Here are three yummy recipes to use as you celebrate this fun holiday.
Berries are in season over the summer, so why not use their delicious flavor to make this mixed berry smoothie? The recipe calls for frozen berries, a banana, Greek yogurt, and milk or juice. If you’re feeling fancy, add a garnish of fresh berries or mint sprigs. In just five minutes, you’ll have a delicious and healthy smoothie that’ll give your body some great nutrients.
Another classic summer flavor takes inspiration from the tropics. If the Pacific islands are calling your name, this tropical smoothie is for you! Blend together mango, pineapple, banana, pineapple juice, and coconut milk. For an added health boost, consider adding spinach, kale, protein powder, chia seeds, or flax seeds. The recipe is both creamy and refreshing—plus, it’s loaded with healthy nutrients!
Green smoothies can work miracles when it comes to picky eaters! This green smoothie recipe is delicious and super easy to make. Just blend together water, mango, spinach, and kale. The sweetness from the mango blends together with the leafy greens to help with weight loss and provide energy.
(Pro tip: Order matters. Add liquids, then frozen fruit, then light greens to the blender. According to Olena Osipov at iFOODreal, keeping this order “ensures ingredients will spin inside the blender. Otherwise [the] blender will cavitate. Heavy frozen fruit should get blended with liquids first.”)
National Smoothie Day is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen and try some new recipes. From berry to tropical to green smoothies and more, you’ve got a world of possibilities for celebrating National Smoothie Day this year.
