Healthy Fruit Smoothies – Great Tasting

This post includes a Terrific Triple Berry Almond Milk Smoothie and a Delicious Blueberry Peach Almond Milk Smoothie.

Adding more fruits and vegetables to our diets can be difficult.  It is easier to eat fruits and vegetables if you drink smoothies, but let’s face it they do not always taste good.  We do not drink them if they do not taste YUMMY!  I have experimented with all sorts of smoothies including adding green tea, protein powder, and a variety of fruits and vegetables.  More smoothie recipes coming soon on Recipes for our Daily Bread.

These first two smoothie recipes are so simple to make, great for you, and super delicious.   I started out making smoothies with just fruits.  The smoothies below include a Triple Berry Almond Milk Smoothie and a Blueberry Peach Almond Milk Smoothie.  Both of these smoothies are great tasting and good for you.  These smoothies would make a wonderful after school snack for your kids or a delicious filling breakfast. 

I found some really good web sites which talk about the benefits of the following fruits.  All the fruits in these smoothies are PACKED with great benefits.  I thought you would enjoy reading about them.

Fruit of the Spirt

I could not talk about fruit without mentioning this bible verse.  I know I need to constantly be remembering it and adding these fruits to my life.

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

    Beth,

    I am been feeling like I truly need more healthy fruits and vegetables in my family’s diet. The more I read about the benefits the more I felt guilty for not always getting enough. Making smoothies is such an easy way to get plenty of fruits and vegetables. I have experimented with several and they all taste good. I am not going to share nasty tasting ones.

    Janine,

    I love putting an assortment of fresh/frozen berries in this smoothie. It is truly healthy. Hopefully, it is helping my body fight something or prevent something.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    Wow, this is an absolutely beautiful smoothie, we are big strawberry and blueberry lovers. Almond milk is loved by all our children. We use the power of the blueberries and strawberries to cause fat loss in our dieting group
