Healthy Fruit Shake Recipe
A healthy shake that is as good as it looks. Is it possible? It sure is now. This fruit filled spectacular smoothie is good to eat and good to share.
Okay, if it is possible buy all fresh fruit for this smoothie recipe, then great. If the season does not permit the use of the fresh versions of these different fruits, use fresh where you can and frozen for the others.
When you are using frozen fruit, it does not have to be completely thawed out. You may also get lucky when buying frozen fruit. The fruit may already come chopped up into small pieces.
Everyone will love this easy to make dessert that uses natural sugars and a variety of great tasting fruit. Blend one up today.
- 1 cup ice, crushed
- 1 cup rice milk
- 1 cup peaches, diced into chunks
- 1 cup coconut
- 1 cup banana, mashed
- 1 cup pink lady apples, diced into chunks
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup strawberry frozen yogurt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
With the fresh fruit, chop up the peaches, pink lady apples, and strawberries into bite-sized pieces. The blueberries can be used just as they are for this smoothie. The banana, which one cup is equivalent to one whole banana, needs to be mashed.
Coconut flakes may be used if you do not want to buy a whole coconut. There is an added bonus if you use a whole coconut. You can add the coconut juice to the smoothie. It adds a completely new fruity flavor.
More of a coconut taste comes out in the smoothie if you use the juice. Take all of the pieces of fruit and add them to a blender. Add the rice milk, vanilla, maple syrup, and crushed ice. Blend on high until all fruit pieces are well blended.
Pour smoothie into tall milkshake glasses, serve, and enjoy.
