Smoothie Sunday: Cherry Peachy Smoothie

Erik and I went to a peach festival last Sunday so I wanted to make a peach smoothie in honor of that.  Since I also still had cherries to use up I tossed those in too.  The result was yummy and refreshing.  Now I just need to come up with some more peach recipes to use all the peaches we got at the festival!

Smoothie Sunday: Cherry Watermelon Smoothie

Other years I’ve put a lot of thought into my smoothie combinations.  This year since I don’t have as big of a fruit supply at my ready it’s been a bit more slapdash.  But I’ve still been able to put together some good smoothies!  This week we have a lot of watermelon to work through and some cherries I want to eat before they go bad and thus the cherry watermelon smoothie was born.  Watermelon smoothies are always a lot thinner than the other smoothies I usually make due to their high water content so keep that in mind when putting it together.

Smoothie Sunday: Mango Cherry Smoothie

I found myself with some cherries and decided I wanted to make a smoothie with them.  At first I wasn’t sure what to combine them with, but I decided that mango with cherries seemed like it’d be yummy.  And thus the mango cherry smoothie was born.  And yes, it is yummy.

Smoothie Sunday: Mixed Starfruit Smoothie

I’m not sure how common starfruits are.  When I was younger I used to get them from the grocery store often, but then I went a long time without seeing them.  When I finally saw starfruit again at the store the other day I bought couple.  I knew I wanted to try making a smoothie with one because they have a very light, refreshing taste.  To boost up the amount of fruit I added some blueberries we’re still trying to finish and some pineapple we had lying around.  I ended up with a very summery, refreshing smoothie that’s high in vitamin C and antioxidants.  Can’t beat that.

Smoothie Sunday: Guavacado Smoothie

Full disclosure – this is not the most attractive looking smoothie I’ve ever made.  In fact it’s probably one of the least attractive ones.  Like, I was actively disappointed in how not good it looked.  But fortunately looks aren’t everything.  Taste is important too, and luckily it tastes good.  While I’d had guava juice in stuff before, I’d never actually eaten just guava fruit before, but I found them when I was at the store picking up an avocado and thus this smoothie was born.  The fact that the words “guava” and “avocado” blend together so well is merely coincidence.
