Can you believe that Spring has come and is almost gone already? My word, Doesn’t time fly? It seems like only yesterday that we were anxious for the winter season to be over, and alas, summer is almost here. Of course, we all know that when it gets hotttttttt, it is hot indeed but we dear not wish to not have summers, after all, it is a time for great fun and memorable adventures. So I have decided to make it my point of duty to post weekly delicious heart-healthy juices and smoothies that you can try to cool you down this summer. This, of course, will separate for my regular blogs. So if you have not subscribed or started following this blog as yet…..wellllps, what are you waiting for? Please do so now, thank you.
So today’s post was inspired by my three years old son. I gave him two options for his choice of smoothies for the day: a strawberry banana smoothie (red) or a pineapple-mango smoothie (yellow), and instead of choosing one, he wanted both, so I obliged.
Mind you, when my son said that he wanted both smoothies, he was not talking about me combining all the fruits to make one smoothie; he wanted to see both colors. But of course, why make mommy’s job any easier. And lucky for you, you too get a two-in-one recipe which you can either combine to make one delicious drink or separate to get a similar result. I guarantee that you will love the taste and you will be refreshed. What you see below is the result of his request.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie/Pineapple Mango Smoothie
Pineapple-Mango Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup sliced frozen mango
1/2 cups cut frozen pineapples
small piece peeled ginger
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cups coconut water
Strawberry Smoothie Recipe
1 cup frozen strawberries
4 medjool dates
1 tbsp. grounded flaxseed (Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acid, fiber along with numerous health benefits).
1/3 cups coconut water
Combine ingredients in blender or nutribullet and blend. Ensure that your consistency is thick so that when you add both content to the container, it will remain separated. If it is too thick then add a little more coconut water.
I got almost 42 ounces.
It does not matter which color you chose to add first, just tap into your creative genius and do you.
