Summer Smoothie Roundup

Chill out this summer with a variety of healthy smoothie recipes

Summer is less than a month away and, as the heat continues to rise, so do the cravings for healthy, frozen treats. Smoothies are an excellent way to relax and cool down while enjoying your favorite fruits. With endless possibilities for smoothie recipes, there is sure to be one that perfectly fits your taste.

Whether you're looking for a smoothie that's flavorful, healthy, unique, or even grown-up with a twist of alcohol, one of the homemade recipes below will hopefully inspire you to get started today.

Looking for a milk-based smoothie to make a creamy warm-weather drink? There are smoothies with yogurt, ice cream, milk, and Greek yogurt, depending on your preference and recipe choice. And if creamy isn’t your style, there are recipes that can be made with sorbet, ice, and juice. Smoothies are great for healthy eating and can help you obtain the antioxidants and vitamins our diets sometimes lack, especially during hot, busy summers — antioxidant-packed options can be made with a long list of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, teas, and spices.

With summer quickly approaching, don’t be caught in the heat without a healthy, frozen treat.
