Fantastic Tasting Summer Smoothie Recipes - Positive Addition to Your Daily Diet

Its summer time and the heat is on. One favourite choice of most people for beating the heat is to get a smoothie.

But for people trying to lose weight and not miss out, are there any healthy options? Yes!

There are two good reasons to make a healthy recipe smoothie:

1) They taste great; and

2) They are filled with lots of fruit that have health benefits for your body.

From a health point of view, blended smoothies are great for a concentrated meal that's ready in a minute. You can combine a variety of fruit with some water, possibly add some dates or genuine maple syrup and make a delicious smoothie that can be enjoyed anytime as a healthy meal while on your weight loss program.

Now, the recipes listed below are my personal favourites for smoothies. I think they are creative ways to enjoy the proper diet and not entirely miss out on pleasuring ourselves occasionally.

You can always experiment to find tasty recipes as well, but here are some to get you started.

1. “Chocolate” Milk

  • 10-15 medium dates
  • 3 ripe bananas.
  • 16 oz Cold Coconut Water

2. Papaya Passion

  • 1 medium Papaya
  • 1 red delicious apple
  • 5 dates (pitted)
  • 1 container of natural yoghurt or 1 cup of milk

3. Strawberry Delight

  • 4-8 strawberries
  • 1-2 Bananas
  • 8-10 dates
  • 1 container of natural yoghurt or 1 cup of milk

4. Banana-Chocolate-Vanilla 

  • 1 cut up frozen banana
  • 1 cup of milk (can be almond or soy)
  • 1 teaspoon of Splenda (sweetener)

5. Mango Magic

Regardless of which of the smoothie recipes you are making, the procedure is the same.

Just pop all the ingredients into your blender and turn it on. Run the blender until the shake is the desired consistency, pour into a beautiful glass, and enjoy your homemade, healthy, nutrient-dense, diet shake recipes.

Not only will it help with your weight loss; it tastes delicious!
