If you love raspberries as much as I do, you’re in for a treat! This banana raspberry smoothie is so refreshing, it’s the perfect way to start your day. It’s packed with vitamin C and other healthy nutrients to give you the energy you need to take on the day. Each sip contains a blast of raspberry flavor with just a hint of banana. So many smoothie recipes these days have a huge list of ingredients. I like to keep it simple, so this smoothie only has a few healthy ingredients. The best thing about this smoothie? It’s my favorite color – pink! 🙂

Mango Carrot Smoothie

carrotsmth

I used to hate carrot juice as a kid. Recently, I discovered this mango carrot smoothie, which doesn’t taste anything like carrot juice! It’s so good and good for you! I usually add yogurt or milk to my smoothies, but no dairy is needed for this one – just orange juice, water, banana, carrots, and frozen mango. This smoothie is packed with vitamin A and C, and will give you the nutritious energy you need to start your day.

Apple Cider Smoothie

I feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump, but instead of shrimps, I gots me some apples! We went apple-picking last weekend and we are still buried in a mound of apples. Made some apple pie and apple sauce and now we are on to apple cider smoothies!

Pretty easy to make and just as good for you as eating two apples–without the chewing of course.

Mango Lassi Popsicles

makes 6-12 popsicles depending on your molds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups ripe mango, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • big pinch of ground cardamom
  • big pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Peel your mango, chop it up into large chunks and put all your ingredients into the Magic Bullet. I had to do this in two parts so that it wouldn’t be too full.
  2. Blend! Once everything is well mixed, you can pour it into your popsicle molds.
  3. I improvised with small plastic cups and poured the mixture in and let it freeze for about an hour and then stuck my popsicle sticks in the middle. Let them freeze solid around 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Then, when you have a craving for something fruity and delicious and slightly exotic, run your popsicle mold under some warm water, pop it out and thank yourself for trying out this recipe!

mint-smoothie

I love smoothies. I drink them almost every day. Last weekend at the grocery store, I walked by some mint and impulsively bought it because it smelled so good, but I realized I had way too much of it once I got home. Instead of making my usual berry smoothie for lunch, I decided to experiment with mint and chocolate in a smoothie. Yes, the chocolate chips add on a few more calories, but in this smoothie, it’s worth it! It tastes like a mint chocolate chip milk shake! Just add a banana, ice, yogurt, milk, cocoa, chocolate chips and mint to a Magic Bullet cup and blend up this refreshing treat!

Fall is just around the corner and what better way to welcome this lovely season into our lives that with a fall classic: Apple Pie.

Delicious, warm, it really is the best. But baking can be time consuming and difficult, especially if you don’t have all the ingredients you need, all the utensils, or the time it takes to sit around and wait for it to bake. Chances are though, that you have a few common smoothie ingredients, some apples, and a few apple pie spices. Give it a blend in your Magic Bullet and get the season started with this tasty treat.
