3 Scrumptious Smoothies You Must Make This Summer

Posted by Shay Lawrence on

There’s a pleasant breeze on your neck, the sun is beating down, you look out to the rolling waves as you reach over and grab a cool, ice cold smoothie in your reusable mason jar, topped with a CaliWoods straw and filled with fresh fruity goodness.

One of the best ways to get your five plus a day throughout summer is through the classic smoothie. Blended fruits, nut mylk, leafy greens, natural sweeteners, and a dash of ice. Pure bliss.

Smoothies are simple to make, great for your health (when done well!), and the perfect way to start or end your day under the sun.

Want to get your smoothie on, but don’t know where to start?

Are you a smoothie addict looking for some new inspiration?

3 scrumptious smoothies you MUST make this summer…

Before we kick into things, you’ll need a few key items to make your lush smoothies:

  • A blender: if you don’t already own one, try hunting in a second hand store (often you’ll find them there in great condition)
  • A glass: we prefer upcycling a mason jar
  • A CaliWoods’ smoothie straw: How else will you slurp your smoothie without a smoothie moustache?
  • A CaliWoods Tumbler to keep your smoothie cold and fresh for hours!

To make the smoothies below: place all ingredients in your blender, whizz for 2-3 minutes until completely combined, pour into your glass, top with the recommended garnish ingredients, and pop in your straw.
