Blueberry-Spinach Smoothie

Ramp up your vitamin and mineral intake with only 28 calories when you add baby spinach to this lightly sweet fruit smoothie.

White Peach Moscow Mule

This simple summer spin on a classic favorite is light and refreshing. Try blending in 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
with the peaches for another layer of flavor.

Spiced Pomegranate Royales

For a romantic alternative to the mimosa, try this twist on a kir royale (a cocktail made with crème de cassis and sparkling wine). You can also switch out the cinnamon for star anise to make a more exotic cocktail.

Chard, Lime, and Mint Smoothies

Tender Swiss chard breaks down easily in a regular blender for smoothies that need no straining. Since red chard veins can bleed color, choose green chard to keep the verdant hue. Reserve chard stems for another use.

Orange Wassail

Orange Wassail

Wassail is a hot mulled punch traditionally made with cider or ale and wine. This version calls for orange juice instead of cider or ale, but is no less festive.

Big Apple Punch

Big Apple Punch

Lightly sweet hard cider makes a festive addition to cocktails like this autumn-inspired sparkler. To make a non-alcoholic version, omit the brandy and substitute seltzer water for the hard cider.

Kefir "Orange Julius"

Kefir 'Orange Julius'

Inspired by the mall stand beverage made with orange juice, milk, and vanilla, this drink is thick and satisfying.

Sparkling Lemonade

Sparkling Lemonade

The acidity of the lemon juice slows the yeast activity for this soda, so start it about a week before you plan to serve it.

Pickled-Shallot Dirty Vodka Martinis

Pickled-Shallot Dirty Vodka Martinis

Create a signature cocktail with tasty pickled shallots. For best results, freeze the vodka and the martini glasses for a few hours before using. Leftover pickled shallots will keep up to a month in the fridge.
