3 Healthy Smoothie Recipes

We all love a good smoothie on a warm summers day: it’s refreshing, delicious and filling when made right. Since it also achieves the healthy feeling of ‘new body hu dis?’, you can’t really go wrong when you’re feeling peckish but want to have a snack that tastes like a treat. However, in order to ensure that it’s actually healthy, you need to make a few adjustments. If it’s often filled with juice or loads of sugary fruit and sweeteners, the pros are often counteracted by the cons. So, here are three healthy smoothie recipes that have some excellent superfoods thrown in and don’t taste like you’re drinking grass.

Note: The below often work best if you have a variety of pre-frozen fruit. I often freeze fruits with low water content that I was unable to eat before it went off for this very purpose! 🙂
