Real Fruit Smoothie Lower-Calorie
Fruit smoothies are deliciously sweet and satisfying. Now that the weather is starting to warm up a bit, these make a great refreshing snack between meals. They’re also great for breakfast if you are looking for something quick and easy to make.
Fruit smoothies can be changed up to specific tastes. However, this is one of my favorite blends, which includes oranges, bananas, and a frozen fruit medley consisting of pineapple, mango and strawberries. Any cup of frozen fruit would work. I also added some almond milk to help blend the fruit together. These are not only a great meal option, they are also healthy and nutritious, and dairy free. If you don’t have any almond milk on hand, any nut milk will work.
Smoothies are loved in my family by everyone, regardless of age. It feels like you’re getting a treat, when in reality you’re eating fruit. Mentioned earlier, any fruit can be used to make a smoothie, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand, or what is currently in season. I like to shop by what’s in season and use what I can fresh, but I also like to use frozen and combine the two. The frozen fruit will make your smoothie thicker without having to add ice. If you want to use all fresh fruit, that is okay too, and you can add ice to thicken it up.
This smoothie is made with all real fruit, so there is no need to add any sweeteners to it because the fruit is naturally sweet. What are some of your favorite fruits to add to your smoothies?
