Real fruit smoothie is the perfect drink for breakfast or just a snack. Enjoy on a warm summer day, or year round. It’s light and refreshing.
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. This is one of my favorite blends, which includes oranges, bananas, and a frozen fruit medley consisting of pineapple, mango and strawberries. These are not only a great meal option, they are also healthy and nutritious, plus it is dairy-free. If you don’t have any almond milk on hand, any nut milk will work.
Are fruit smoothies healthy?
Smoothies, especially the ones you make at home from whole fruits and vegetables, are high in vitamins, minerals, and many other beneficial nutrients.
What you’ll need to make this recipe.
- Frozen fruit
- Unsweetened almond milk
How to make Real Fruit Smoothie
To make this smoothie, add an orange, half of a banana, and a cup of frozen fruit to the blender, along with a half cup of almond milk. Blend until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended up.
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.
Which milk is best for smoothies?
You can use any type of milk in a smoothie. Almond milk is a good option if you are lactose intolerant, or prefer your smoothie to be dairy-free.
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.
Can I store my smoothie leftovers?
Yes. Place any leftovers in a glass mason jar. Preferably a filled jar so there is no air left in the jar. Seal the lid tight and place in the refrigerator for about 1 day.
