Smoothies are the perfect summer breakfast. They also work really well as a mid-day or afternoon snack. Delicious, refreshing, and a little bit sweet – they’re filling and can work for you pretty much any time of the day. Want a smoothie for dessert? They’re a healthier choice than your average milkshake, assuming you stick with fresh fruits and other lighter ingredients.
I’ve gathered up some favorite smoothie recipes from some of our Women of Midlife members to share with you today.
Delicious Smoothie Recipes
Gaye has a Super Orange Smoothie recipe for us over at Calm, Healthy, Sexy that looks so simple and really delicious. Like, you might be able to fill your favorite popsicle molds with it for the kids, grandkids, or yourself!
Looking for a sweet smoothie treat? This Healthy Chocolate Mint Smoothie with Raspberries and Avocado could be the perfect choice for you. Thanks, Laurie, of A Square of Chocolate!
I love straightforward smoothie recipes, so this Mixed Berries Banana Smoothie from Carolann over at Sassy Townhouse Living is just perfect. Smoothie making tip from me? Freeze your berries in advance – so so good!
Missing that eggnog flavor year-round? Stephanie of Recipe Renovator has an Eggnog Smoothie Recipe you’ll want to try. It’s all natural and the perfect way to give yourself that Christmas in July feeling. She also has a Peach Mango Smoothie that looks like it’s more my speed.
This Silken Cinnamon and Almond Milk Smoothie by Alexandra over at Fun and Fit looks delicious and exactly like something I’d make for myself. I’m sure you could use any almond milk or switch it up to cashew or coconut, or just opt for dairy if you prefer.
Nancy of Skinny Kitchen shared a good for you Healthy and Skinny Green Juice Smoothie here at Midlife Boulevard that you need to check out.
And Deborah of Urban Naturale shares this delicious looking Mad About Mango Superfood Green Smoothie. And I love mango, but I’m totally considering her Chocolate Lovers’ Cacao Almond Butter Smoothie, if I can figure out what to replace the banana with (that’s just me, I’m sure it’s delicious for the banana lovers out there!).
And Pennie has what she refers to as The Best Smoothie in the World at her website The Accidental Blogger. And it’s only a 5 ingredient recipe – how easy is that?
