Refreshing Summer Smoothies

Last week on Liv Avenida Blog, we shared with you some of our top suggestions for staying hydrated this summer. This week, we’re here to help you feel relaxed and refreshed by bringing you some smoothie recipes fit for the season! Consider making one of these delicious drinks in your Chandler, AZ apartment — either alone or with others!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Shake

This recipe is one of our favorite ways to pack in the nutrients and make a quick, easy, tasty meal you can take out the door. It pairs the classically delicious combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana to make a sweet but healthy shake. If you have a few overripe bananas you’re hesitant to throw away, this is a great way to make use of them and naturally bring out the sweetness.

Healthy Pineapple Smoothie with Banana

With only five ingredients, you can make a healthy and vegan smoothie recipe that anyone is sure to love. All you need is fresh cut pineapple fruit, bananas, carrots, orange juice, and water for a smoothie that looks like sunshine! The sweet and tangy flavors of orange, pineapple, and banana balance out the healthier carrot taste, so it’s a good way to sneak something healthy into your day.

Raspberry Peach Smoothie

This thick and creamy smoothie is a perfect addition to any picnic or summer barbeque. Another healthy way to fill you up and cool you down, this smoothie just requires frozen raspberries, fresh peaches, vanilla Greek yogurt, and vanilla almond milk.

Metabolism-Boosting Blueberry Smoothie

The blogger of this recipe says she likes to start her day off with this smoothie because she gets the nutritional benefits of the antioxidant blueberries, and there’s only one kitchen appliance to clean! Throw in the fact that it’s delicious and it’s a perfect breakfast. Invest in some protein powder for this shake and others you make in the future so you can get yourself ready for many days of clean eating.

We hope you enjoy these smoothies! Let us know of any other great ones we should make by leaving a comment with the recipe.
