I will admit that summer is not my favorite season. We live in a desert, so summer is really hot. Although I grew up here so I am used to it, I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't mind a more mild summer that didn't last nine months out of the year.
However, I try to make the best of things (which is why we have a pool) and these summer smoothie recipes are definitely part of the summer equation! Summer time is a great time for smoothies, especially these smoothies. You can toss these ingredients into your Hamilton Beach Blender and have a tasty summer smoothie treat in a snap. Bonus? These are dairy free and vegan, so, there is nothing holding you back. (Although, if you wanted to toss a scoop of vanilla ice cream in to make these more like a shake I'd say, go right ahead!)
Who doesn't love a good blender? Hamilton Beach Blenders work great, and they don't break the bank! So, if you don't already have a Hamilton Beach Blender on hand, click on the link to buy one. Once it arrives, make yourself some smoothies!
Smoothie #1: Peachie Keen
2 yellow peaches
1/2 cup carrot juice
1 cup almondmilk
bonus: 1 serving of your favorite protein powder (I use Orgain Organic Creamy Chocolate Powder)
Throw in your Hamilton Beach Blender and blend on high for 1 minute.
Smoothie #2: Blue Strawberry Dream
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup spinach
1 and 1/2 cups almondmilk
Throw into your Hamilton Beach Blender and blend on high for 1 minute.
For thicker smoothies, add 1/4 cup crushed ice. You can also add 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream for more of a milkshake.
