Smoothies tell us that we can get the nutrition of a salad in the form of a shake, and for this we will be forever grateful. That goes double in summer, when the icy refreshers can really bring us back to life on a hot day. Honestly, we might start blending up all our meals if we weren’t worried we might eventually forget how to chew. To keep you blitzing all season long, we’ve rounded up some of the best smoothie recipes out there. These run the gamut from sweet treats to green juice options packed with veggie goodness and you’re certain to find a new favorite.
Blueberry Cucumber Smoothie – Vegetarian Times It might not been the first combo you think of, but it’s so refreshing.
Mellow Melon Smoothie – Vegetarian Times We’re just trying to be the mellow melon as often as possible.
Watermelon Smoothie – A Couple Cooks Juicy watermelon plus icy frozen strawberries make this one an all-fruit fave. We wouldn’t be mad about adding a little booze to the mix, either.
Apple-Carrot-Ginger-Fennel Smoothie – Vegetarian Times Full of fiber and flavor, this guy hits sweet and savory notes.
Chard-Lime-Mint Smoothie – Vegetarian Times The bright green color looks and feels virtuous, while also helping make use of any extra chard in the CSA box.
