Smoothie recipes have so much potential! You can combine a wide variety of ingredients, add a splash of liquid, something frozen and something sweet and viola! You have yourself something magical and cool. Here are 2 berry smoothie recipes that are great for summer breakfast, lunch or snacks. Also- I have made a couple smoothies for dinners when I didn’t know what I wanted but had to eat something!

As I wrote in a previous post about my Green Smoothie recipe, there can be a lot of nutritional value to your smoothies. You don’t always have to go with the sweetest ingredients. But here is a quick list of things you might want to add to your next smoothie- fresh or frozen.

Green Smoothie with Spinach and Avocado

Sounds like it might be gross with the smoothie and strange bitter flavor that sometimes accompanies an avocado- but bananas are a great sweetener and mellows it out.
