Healthy Summer Smoothies

My favourite, refreshing, light summer snack (or lunch) is a delicious fruit smoothie. Healthy and filling, it's a perfect post-dance practice treat!  Just thought I'd share how I make them! Enjoy :)

  • Half a banana
  • One cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1-2 cups milk - (I use almond or coconut milk)
  • 1-2 tblsp almond chunks/slices (You can find these in the bulk section of your grocery store)
  • 1 tsp icing sugar
  • Any health powder you want to add - protein/greens etc.

   Add all ingredients to your blender, mix and enjoy!

  • This makes one smoothie - just double it if you're sharing with a friend!
  • I use the magic bullet blending system, which is great because I can just make a quick smoothie for myself and there is very little clean-up. A normal blender works fine too.
  • The icing sugar is not necessary, so just eliminate it if you are avoiding sugar.
  • Use yogourt instead of milk if you want a thicker consistency.
  • You might wonder about the almonds, but it adds a nice crunch and good protein to the smoothie.
  • I usually add a tablespoon of my greens mix:

Hope you're all having a beautiful summer!
