Frozen Blender Drinks
Frozen blender drinks are made often at our house - for family and friends. We serve them sometimes as an appetizer, or just by themselves for evening guests.
I always keep the ingredients I need on hand in the freezer - frozen bananas, frozen pineapple, mango, strawberries, etc.
Frozen Tropical Drinks
Frozen tropical drinks include ingredients like pineapple, mango and coconut. Our latest and most popular frozen fruit drink is our pina colada smoothie recipe.
My recipe for two servings:
2 Cups of Coconut Juice Blend
1 Cup of Frozen Mango Slices
1 Frozen Banana Sliced
1 Cup of Frozen Pineapple Chunks
Mix in your favorite blender until smooth and serve in chilled glasses with a fun tropical straw.
Blender Fruit Drinks
I always use frozen (and not fresh) fruit for my blender fruit drinks. Even the banana, I peel and slice it and then put it in a freezer bag. Many people use ice in their homemade fruit smoothie - instead I use frozen fruit.
It makes a nice thick smoothie with lots of good for you ingredients. It is also means that I am always ready for last minute guests because I keep lots of frozen fruit ready to go in the freezer.
My sister served this refreshing watermelon drink and we loved the refreshing taste.
It is now one of our favorite pool side drinks.
Serve the drinks in insulated cups with a fun straw.
Simple ingredients like watermelon, strawberries and lemon juice or lime vodka for adults make it a drink that can be served to any age group.
Homemade Fruit Smoothie
Because we grow raspberries along our pool fence, I make a homegrown and a home made fruit smoothie out of raspberries.
Raspberry smoothie recipes can be adjusted in many ways. Here is a basic one.
Blend on high the following ingredients:
1. One 8 oz cup of vanilla or raspberry yogurt
2. 1 Cup of Frozen Raspberries
3. 3/4 Cup of Milk or Almond Milk
4. 1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
5. 1/2 Frozen Sliced Banana
Mix until smooth.
The best blender for smoothies is one that you can take out by the pool. My neighbor brought over her cordless Breville blender one evening when neighbors came over to cool off in the pool. It was powerful enough to mix frozen pineapple and frozen mangoes.
Making the smoothies together helped create an atmosphere of fun and friendship. Don't you think that's much better than being by yourself in the kitchen making the smoothies?
