Best Summer Smoothies 2020

Hi everyone!

Welcome back to another blog, super excited to have you here today because we are making five slimming smoothie recipes.

These smoothie recipes are perfect for summer, there is something for everybody to choose from, and I know you guys are going to love them.

For me, smoothies, in general, are slimming foods because they are really easy on your system, they're easy to digest, your stomach doesn't have to go through that whole digestion process of breaking down whole foods, smoothies are already blended up, so they're really easy on your system which also makes them kind of anti-bloat and helps keep your tummy flatter, but there are specific things I think that you can include in your smoothies that will make them even better

for your system and help you bloat even less.

So, all of these recipes include healthy fat, a hydrating fruit and also some form of plant-based protein.

I really think you guys are going to love these recipes,

So the first smoothie is,

  1. Watermelon Cooler

Watermelon Cooler

Ingredients:

  • fresh watermelon
  • fresh cucumber
  •  fresh basil
  • chia seeds
  • lime juice
  • coconut butter

Method:

Put everything into a blender jar. The hydration we're getting from the cucumber and the watermelon, the healthy fats, and protein we're getting from the chia seeds and we're also getting some healthy fat from the coconut butter.

And this actually doesn't need water or any liquid to blend up as it is.

If you want to get it colder, you can add ice and blend it up with some water or almond milk, but basically, just blend it up until it's nice and smooth, and then you can transfer it into your glass.

And this is a great one for summer, it's really light, it's flavorful, it's fresh, and it tastes awesome.

Dua. Lemon Blueberry smoothie

Lemon Blueberry smoothie

Ingredients:

  • frozen cauliflower
  • frozen blueberries
  • almond butter
  • flaxseed meal
  • lemon juice

Method:

Add everything into your blender jar. The hydration we're getting from the cauliflower and blueberries, protein and healthy fats, we're getting both from the almond butter as well as the flaxseed meal, and then, I blended this up with water, but it also works really well with coconut water or almond milk and you can just blend it on high until it's smooth and creamy, it's really thick and it's so delicious that also makes a great smoothie bowl.

I recommend topping it with lemon zest, coconut flakes, and cacao nibs, it's by far my favorite. And this one, again, is really high in antioxidants,

it's great for digestion, and it tastes awesome.

Tiga. Chocolate Cherry Pie smoothie

Chocolate Cherry Pie smoothie

Ingredients:

  •  frozen cherries
  •  cucumber
  •  spinach
  •  hemp seeds
  •  cacao powder
  •  cashew butter
  •  cinnamon

Method:

Add everything into your blender jar. The hydration we're getting from the cucumber, as well as the cherries. We're getting plant-based protein and healthy fats from the hemp seeds, and we're also getting healthy fats from the cashew butter, and then, I like to blend this up with almond milk, but you could use chocolate almond milk too, it's also delicious with that, and then you're just gonna blend this up until it's totally smooth and creamy.

4. Peanut Butter & Greens smoothie

Peanut Butter & Greens smoothie

Ingredients:

  • spinach
  • fresh or frozen zucchini
  •  frozen banana
  •  peanut butter
  • quinoa flakes or cooked quinoa

5. Creamy Apple Pie smoothie

Add everything into your blender. We're getting the hydration from the zucchini, the healthy fats and a little bit of protein from the peanut butter, as well as the quinoa flakes, and then I like to blend this up with almond milk, but again, you could use any kind of liquid that you like, it's also really good with coconut water. And then just pop it on your blender and then just blend it u until it's nice and smooth, the banana makes it really creamy and thick, and this tastes so good,

it's really peanut buttery and you guys are gonna love it.

Creamy Apple Pie smoothie

Ingredients:

  •  frozen apples (chopped up and tossed)
  •  rolled oats
  •  almond butter
  •  cinnamon
  •  nutmeg

Method:

You can just add everything, again, into the blender jar. We're getting the hydration from the apples 'cause they're high in water content. We're getting healthy fats and protein from the almond butter, and we're getting the wonderful flavor from the spices. And then, blend it. but you could, again, use any

type of liquid that you want, it's also really good with oat milk, but water also works too,

if you don't have any of those on hand. And then you can just blend it up until it's totally smooth and creamy,

Note:

make sure all those oats are nice and blended.
