Fruit Smoothies



We've been making these smoothies for years now. It's such a refreshing way to get a wide variety of nutrients. Trader Joe's is a great place to stock up on frozen fruit. Strawberry and mango are our favorites, but we also sometimes add blueberry, raspberry, or pineapple. We think bananas are a must-add to any fruit smoothie, and kefir is a great probiotic and protein boost. I also tend to add a lot of flaxseed to our smoothies since it mixes right in and you can't even tell it's there.


Ingredients
Frozen strawberries
Frozen mango chunks
1-2 bananas (great way to use up overripe ones)
Ground flaxseed
Kefir (we like strawberry flavored)
Apple juice

Directions
Simply mix all ingredients well in a blender. Enjoy!
Play around with different fruit combos and see what you like the best.

    1. Hey Haley! Not dumb at all! Kefir is a fermented milk drink (kind of like yogurt). We no longer drink it since becoming vegan, but you could sub it with any plant-based yogurts if you'd like! :)

  2. Smoothies are very good in summers. We make in Ramadan because its full of energy which we need after full day of fasting.
