According to the Centers for Disease Control, only one in 10 Americans eat enough vegetables per day. Most adults need between two and three cups of vegetables and up to two cups of fruit per day.

When you’re busy trying to juggle work and family, it can be hard to find the time to prepare healthy meals. But there’s a reason health experts recommend those daily amounts—eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is one of the best ways to lower your risk of chronic diseases , including heart disease and diabetes.

If you’re struggling to eat well, smoothies can be an easy and delicious way to get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables.

Smoothies from chain stores often come with added sugars, which are a major source of calories and may have other negative health effects . By making your own smoothies, you have better control over the amount of sugar and other ingredients you consume.

10 Delicious Summer Smoothie Recipes

With beautiful warm weather, plenty of daylight to enjoy the outdoors, and abundant fresh fruit, summer is the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing, ice-cold smoothie. From in-season produce like watermelon and peaches to tropical island flavors like mango and pineapple, summer smoothies have it all. Not only will they cool you down from the summer heat, they also help replenish your electrolytes that can get depleted in the hot and humid weather.

How to Make a Summer Smoothie

Making a smoothie couldn’t be simpler. Fresh fruit, such as watermelon, peaches, strawberries, and blueberries, are all plentiful in the summertime. Just combine about a cup of your favorite fresh fruit and a cup of liquid, such as water, coconut water, or milk. Add about a half a cup of yogurt for creaminess and top with ice.

For a frostier texture without the need for ice, try chopping your fresh fruit and freezing it beforehand. Finally, depending on the ingredients you add, you may want to add a touch of sweetness. Half a teaspoon of honey or sugar should be enough to make your smoothie perfectly sweet. Additional add-ins, such as flax seed, old-fashioned oats, and protein powder can be added for increased nutrition and staying power. Once you’re all done adding your ingredients, blend on high power until smooth and frosty.

Antioxidant-rich green tea makes this healthy smoothie a nutritional powerhouse.

Microwave water on high until steaming hot in a small bowl. Add a green tea bag and allow to brew 3 minutes. Remove tea bag. Stir honey into tea until it dissolves. Combine berries, banana, and milk in a blender with ice crushing ability. Add tea to blender. Blend ingredients on ice crush or highest setting until smooth (Some blenders may require additional water to process the mixture). Pour smoothie into tall glass and enjoy!


4. Turning Green Smoothie

A triple fruit punch of grapes, pineapple, and banana make the Turning Green Smoothie sweet, and the spinach flavor is mild.

With an added scoop of any protein powder (like my bone broth protein or plant protein, both of which come in vanilla, chocolate, and natural flavors), it gets even better.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cups water and ice
  • 3 large handfuls spinach
  • 2 large leaves kale with stems
  • 1 cup green grapes
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop protein powder any flavor


I drink this summer fruit smoothie regularly around springtime. Honestly, I have it whenever I need energy or feel like I need a boost of antioxidants and vitamins. For me, the best time to make smoothies is in the morning, pop them in a mason jar and enjoy on the go! However, the quicker you drink it after blending the more nutrients will be available!

Firstly, you will need a good blender and a bag of frozen summer fruits. I like to use the Waitrose British frozen summer fruits because it contains the first four ingredients together. Honestly though, any blend will make a delicious summer fruit smoothie. Don’t be put off my frozen fruit! Often, they contain higher nutritional content due to the time from picking to feezing being so short! Obviously, it’s also easier to store and lasts far longer than fresh.

Ingredients for your:

– 1 cup Raspberries, Blackberries, Red currants, Black currants (frozen fruit bag)
– Handful of fresh Blueberries (optional, but makes a difference to your summer fruit smoothie)
– ½ cup almond milk (or any milk you prefer)
– ½ cup Vanilla yoghurt (I like to use Rachel’s, or Yeo Valley)
– 1 ripe banana
– A tbsp raw açai berry powder (optional)
– 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)

Method:

Add everything into your blender, blend away, and voila you will have your summer fruit smoothie! You can always add more or less milk to create your desired consistency! More yogurt means the smoothie will have a more creamy consistency. Enjoy, and don’t forget to send us a picture if you try this out.

How to Make Your Smoothies Taste Better

If you’re using too many leafy greens, smoothies can end up tasting too bitter.

Sweet fruits like bananas, pineapples, mango can add lots of natural sweetness to your smoothies.

I especially like bananas and mango (fresh or frozen), they make almost every smoothie taste better.

Strawberries and oranges can also be a great choice for masking bitter flavors.

If you’re just starting with smoothies, you can add honey, maple syrup, or agave syrup to make smoothies taste like a dessert.

Once you’re more experienced, you can reduce the amount of sugar in your smoothies and add more leafy greens or other veggies.

The less sugar (honey, syrup, etc.), the more natural ingredients you’ll use, the healthier your smoothie will be.

Fruit Smoothies for Summer

When I go to a farmers’ market in summer, I can’t resist buying more fruit than I need. I blame those cut fruit samples — one taste, and I’m filling my bag.

Fruit from the market is already ripe, and there are times when I need to use up what I have. Smoothies are a great solution you can blend a lot of fruit into one drink, more than you’d cut up and stir into your morning yogurt.

This week I tried something different. I didn’t use frozen bananas in these recipes, as I usually do for smoothies, and I decided not to use dairy. Some of this week’s offerings are pure fruit and ice, sweetened with a rose geranium-infused syrup or agave nectar. When I needed to bulk up a smoothie or make it creamier, I used almond milk.

Except for one made with dates and figs, you’ll find these smoothies only moderately sweet. In all of them, you can really taste the fruit.

Berry and Rose Geranium Smoothie

Fragrant rose geranium is very easy to grow in pots, and a little goes a long way. I use it to make a syrup that I add to just about anything I make with berries.

3/4 cup hulled strawberries

2 to 3 tablespoons rose geranium syrup (see below)

1. Place all of the ingredients in the blender. Blend until frothy, about one minute. Serve at once.

Yield: One serving.

Rose Geranium Syrup

Combine the sugar and water, and bring a to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer three to five minutes until slightly thick. Add the rose geranium sprigs to the pot, turn off the heat and cover tightly. Allow the rose geranium to steep for 15 minutes. Strain into a jar, and place in the refrigerator. The syrup will keep for about a week.

Yield: A little less than 1 cup.
