Making Fruit Smoothies

Making fruit smoothiesMaking fruit smoothies is the perfect way to incorporate fresh fruit in your diet quickly and easily. They can easily be used for meal replacement or snacking because they are portable. Real fruit smoothies are packed with flavor and popular with adults and kids alike, which makes them the perfect starting point for a healthier lifestyle.

Simple fruit smoothies such as a grape smoothie or a strawberry fruit smoothie can be made quickly by adding a little yogurt or milk for a delicious breakfast substitute.

Get a little bolder and start mixing and matching, incorporating other fruit to taste. Don’t forget that you can also use frozen fruit, making smoothies a year-round option while saving money on some fruit that can be expensive when bought fresh.

For a more filling version, add Greek or organic yogurt, some peanut butter, or a scoop of protein powder.
