Super Summer Sunshine Smoothie (about $1 Per Serving)
Why I Love This Recipe
I can not remember when I came up with this one - it's been a hot-weather staple for quite some time. When I was living in South Carolina, sometimes it was too hot to even be hungry, and this smoothie is so robust and nutritious, it actually substituted for a meal many days!
Ingredients You'll Need
Ice Cream (peach, strawberry or vanilla)
Yogurt (peach, strawberry or vanilla)
1 or 2 eggs
frozen orange juice
1 banana AND/OR
canned peaches AND/OR
It comes out best if you put things in in this order - the blender can handle it better. Also frozen strawberries are better because they are sweet, but fresh store-bought strawberries often are not really ripe, and are too tart. Blend:
1 Scoop ice cream
2 scoops yogurt
1 or 2 eggs
2 large spoon fulls of frozen OJ
1 sliced banana AND/OR
2-3 canned peach slices AND/OR
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
If you do not have OJ, you can use the canned peach juice instead.
Delicious !! One glass is filling. You can refrigerate and reblend it for about 2 days if you did not drink it all the first day.
