You know fruits and vegetables are great for you, but sometimes they can be a dread to eat? Spice up the way you consume your daily dose of fruits and veggies by blending them together into a smoothie! Refreshing and extraordinarily healthy, after a sip you’ll question how it’s only made of pure fruits and veggies. To ignite your love for smoothies (or boost your love for them), the Clog has provided you with three easy smoothie recipes. We hope you love them!

Smoothie in Paradise  

If you’re looking for something fruity, Smoothie in Paradise is perfect for you. Packed with a variety of fruits, you’ll feel like you’re sipping a smoothie in Hawaii!

1 cup strawberries

2 peeled kiwis

2 mangoes (cut in cubes)

1 1/2 cups pineapple juice

2 cups ice

Place all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. If fresh fruits are substituted with frozen one, the cups of ice should be taken out.

Mangonificient

Mangonificent will definitely satisfy your love for mangoes. Each sip is filled with a burst of mango and a hint of coconut. We can’t find a better duo to refresh your body after a long day in the sun.

2 cups frozen mango cubes (can be made fresh or bought at the store!)

1/2 cup coconut water

Place all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.

Kale It

Kill the kale game by blending a whole bunch of kale together. Kale is the way to go if you’re looking to add some veggies to your diet. Blended with pineapple and almond milk, you’ll barely be able to taste the kale!

2 cups chopped-up kale leaves

1/3 cup frozen pineapple pieces

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Place all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.

Smoothies create a fun way to consume your favorite (or even least favorite) fruits and veggies. But more importantly, they’re a great way to quench your thirst and keep you refreshed all day. Blend on, Golden Bears.
