Quick & Easy Summer Smoothies

During the hot summer days, having a light and refreshing breakfast in the morning will prepare you to beat the heat and have lots of energy for all the awaiting summer adventures.

As moms, mornings are one of the most stressful and hectic times of the day. That's why quick and easy breakfast options are usually the best choice, but of course you still want something nutritious and delicious that your kids will enjoy eating. 

Smoothies fulfill all of these criteria and are the go to for the summer. They are packed with vitamins, proteins and various superfoods, super simple and fast to make and they turn out looking and tasting colorful and yummy. 

Here are 3 fun recipes for you and your whole family to try and enjoy!

PB & J Smoothie

If your kids like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (and honestly, who doesn't?), they are going to loooove this smoothie. It's a healthy alternative to the childhood classic, but tastes just as delicious. And what's even better is that it's packed with protein and vitamins and only takes 10 minutes to make!

All you need is:

1 cup of frozen strawberries

1 cup frozen raspberries

1 serving collagen peptides or your preferred protein powder

1 tablespoon natural peanut or other nut butter

3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or alternate milk option

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. You can adjust the thickness of the smoothie by adding in more almond milk. Lastly, you can sprinkle a little bit of peanut butter on top and there you go!

Cacao & Ginger Wonder

This smoothie looks like a chocolate milkshake, tastes just as delicious but provides the body with a lot more healthy nutrients.

1 banana

1 chunk of fresh ginger

2 dates

30 g cashew nuts

150 ml almond milk

Blend all the ingredients until the smoothie turns smooth and creamy!

Green Goodness

Green smoothies are all over instagram and in every hip cafe but let's be honest, often they end up tasting a little too healthy. Especially younger kids don't really want to feel like they have to drink liquid vegetables for breakfast, no matter how much you tell them about all the health benefits.

This green smootie however, may look green but does not taste like it and is still just as good for your body. An absolute win-win breakfast or snack option for everyone!

Here's what you need: 

1 banana

2 large handfuls of baby spinach

frozen mango

frozen strawberries

peanut butter

cashew or other milk option

Add the ingredients to a blender and blend until the smoothie is thick and smooth. Pour into 2 large glasses and enjoy!
