Easy Smoothies

Who doesn’t love smoothies? Seriously. When you can blend together things like mango, and strawberry, and banana, and even avocado to create something delicious and healthy, it’s easy to feel good about what you’re putting in your body.

My favorite smoothies are the ones that have a great texture – just a little icy. I also love it when they’re absolutely beautiful to look at and when they are very easy to put together. I LOVE these eight smoothie recipes created by some super talented ladies. Make sure you click the links to read the recipes!


1.  The Lacey In Love Blog details a fantastic way to make easy smoothies. I have always frozen my fruit, but I sure didn’t think about freezing the yogurt this way. I’m positive it’ll give me the texture I love, and I can’t wait to try it!

4. While we’re on the subject of green smoothies, Full Measure of Happiness has created something called a “Cookie Dough Green Monster” smoothie. The way she talks about it, and her awesome photos have just about made me a believer.
