I know that since Fall is right around the corner (at least, here in Germany), smoothie season is almost over. During the cold months I typically only drink cold smoothies after a workout.
Today I wanted to share two of my current favorite smoothie recipes that I came up with a few weeks ago.
Strawberry Coconut Smoothie (Serves 1)
This is a really nice refreshing smoothie. It’s so creamy thanks to the coconut milk and sweet enough thanks to the strawberries.
- 1 cup strawberries (I like using frozen ones)
- 1 cup water
- 4 tablespoons coconut milk
- Optional: sweetener of choice
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. In the picture above I topped my smoothie with Lizi’s Granola.
Berry Spinach Smoothie (Serves 1)
Having a bit of trouble getting some greens into your diet? You don’t taste the spinach in this smoothie, but it’s a great way to sneak in a great amount of good for you vitamins and minerals.
- 1/2 cup mixed berries (I like to use frozen ones)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/2 to 1 cup water
- 1/3 cup yogurt
- Optional: A dash of cinnamon and sweetener of choice
If you would like to add some protein powder to these smoothies, feel free to do so! I add protein powder to my smoothies when I’m having one after a workout.
Do you like drinking smoothies in Fall and Winter? What is your favorite smoothie? If you drink smoothies, when you do drink them?
