Magic Bullet Cold1

 

During the winter months, my kids come home from school with all the germs that are going around the classroom. I’ve noticed that if my family is eating the right nutrients, we get over the colds much quicker, and sometimes don’t even catch the colds! Smoothies have always been a lifesaver, because sometimes when you don’t feel good, you don’t always feel like eating. This is a quick and easy smoothie that has all the right cold fighting ingredients, while getting something in your body to fight whatever is going on!

My kids love the vibrant color that the smoothie makes, and I love all of the antioxidants that come with it. Just blend it up until creamy, and for added flavor and texture, top with your favorite toppings! Granola, chocolate chips, fruit, and a drizzle of honey are just some of my favorites!

Cantaloupe doesn’t get enough love. It’s in season now and it’s a delightfully sweet fruit that can highlight any meal or snack. It’s often the last thing eaten in a fruit salad, but I’ll never understand why. I would eat ripe cantaloupe all day if it were socially acceptable…

For those of you who might skip on this summertime melon, I give you a delicious option that’ll help you get your daily dose of cantaloupe: a smoothie!

Now, with the help of your trusty Magic Bullet, cantaloupe can be turned into a delicious smoothie that you’ll find yourself making over and over again.

Want a quick, delicious breakfast that’s easy to make? Or a luscious dessert you don’t have to feel guilty about eating? This strawberry coconut shake may be just what you’ve been looking for!

Instead of ice cream, this strawberry coconut milkshake is made with a thick scoop of coconut cream. The coconut cream gives it a rich coconut flavor, while the frozen strawberries and bananas keep it nice and thick. For the best results, chop up your banana into bite sized pieces before freezing. Add water as needed to get things moving, but remember, that the more water you add, the thinner your shake will be. Serve immediately and top with shredded coconut and fresh strawberries.

Cherry Pie Smoothie

It’s cherry season!

This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one by one!), you can quickly make a batch of this cherry pie smoothie and serve to your loved ones or enjoy yourself.

Top it with fresh cherries, whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs for a sweet treat.

Smoothies are always satisfying and (usually) extremely healthy. What makes the unhealthy ones so unhealthy? They’re often fruit-based and loaded with unnatural sugars and preservatives. Where do vegetables fall into the equation? Should we be scared to mix them in with their sweeter cousins?

I say no!

This green smoothie features a blend of kale, spinach, cucumbers and celery, combined with some of our favorite fruits to create a healthy, veggie-packed and nutrient-rich glass of satisfying goodness. Need we say more?
