Stupendous Smoothie

This recipe is higher fat than the 15% guideline for this website; however, I feel the fat from the ground flaxseeds–which provides the adequate Omega 3s for an entire day for most of us–justifies the higher fat because it is functional nutrition. –tortugita718

Mint Mango Lassi with Lemon Verbena

Smoothie Tips

Another tip, not really a smoothie but… If you ever have too much watermelon (Seedless. Or any other melon, without the seeds.) and are afraid you won’t use it all in time take a bunch and blend it! It makes a refreshing drink and somehow is easy to eat lots of it this way.

The Candy Floss Tart Smoothie

This is such a sugar pink colour, it glows! But don’t mess with the sweet sugary vixen lurking at the bottom of this drink — she might just turn around and bite you!

Fruit Slurpees

We make watermelon “slurpees” all summer long. Ice + watermelon (plus a couple of spoonfuls of water to get it going )in the blender makes a yummy treat. You don’t even have to remove the seeds; they sink to the bottom of your cup. (And if you do drink a few little bits, whats a little extra fiber anyway…?) Oranges and other juicy citrus are nice, too. I also like apples + berries.
