I'm so excited that spring is here! Summer follows spring and I'm one of those crazy people who love the heat. So really this time of year is just a stepping stone to a few of my favorite months.
Now that we are no longer freezing, I don't feel like a complete weirdo making smoothies. That and my daughter won't be shivering when I offer her one. Smoothies are among my favorite food items so I thought I'd share a couple of my recipes. I'm no where close to being a talented chef, but who needs skill to whirl some fruit up in a blender?
2 cups milk
1/2 cup Apple Cherry frozen juice concentrate
1-12oz bag frozen cherries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Makes 2-3 servings.
I poured some into a cup for my three year old then I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder to the rest for myself.
My all time favorite is Mango and Orange. It's really refreshing and is full of vitamin C.
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
1 cup water
1 cup crushed ice
1 cup frozen mango
This makes 2 servings.
I hope you whip up a little fruity goodness for yourself as well during this glorious season! Enjoy!
