One of my favorite ways to use up kiwis that are getting too ripe and soft are by adding them to a strawberry peach smoothie for breakfast. In this refreshing breakfast smoothie, I use frozen peach slices and strawberries for the slushy effect, fresh kiwi, and oats and yogurt to make it a well-balanced breakfast. I personally like to only add some water to get things moving instead of fruit juices, but adding orange juice or any other fruit juice will sweeten this smoothie up.

Summer Sunrise Smoothie

DSC06450

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t decide which smoothie you want to make? I was having one of those days recently, and couldn’t decide between a raspberry smoothie or mango smoothie. Both sounded so delicious! I finally decided to make a layered smoothie using both! This layered smoothie reminds me of a summer sunrise from the colors. You can layer it more than just once like I did to make it look even nicer. Feel free to add in some fresh fruit. I use frozen fruit during the summertime when it is warm outside because it makes the smoothie cold and slushy. Enjoy!

Mandarin Smoothie

DSC00903

There is something about this warming weather that has me craving cold, citrus drinks. The other day my coworker brought in an orange smoothie from Jamba Juice, and it inspired me to make this mandarin smoothie from scratch at home with my Magic Bullet. This mandarin smoothie is incredibly refreshing, and made with simple, delicious ingredients. It is important to freeze the mandarin slices ahead of time, which will make this smoothie slushy after you blend all of the ingredients together. All you need to make this mandarin smoothie is a cup of mandarin slices (already frozen), crushed ice, and your choice of milk (regular, almond, coconut, etc.).
