Cool and refreshing, smoothies are a delicious and nutritious way to quench your thirst and even satisfy a minor hunger. Smoothie recipe
Yield 1 smoothie
Time 5 minutes
  • Blender or food processor
  • 1½ c frozen fruit
    1 c fresh fruit + 3 ice cubes
  • ¾ – 1 c liquid
  • Additions (optional)
Directions Place all of the ingredients in the blender or food processor and process until there are no visible chunks of fruit. If smoothie is too thick, add more liquid. Too thin, add more fruit.
Notes For suggestions on which fruits, liquids, and additions to use, see my page on smoothie ideas.

If you use frozen fruit, be aware that the first minute or so of blending will be *very* loud, so if you have neighbors or sleeping kids, don’t make smoothies too early in the morning.
