A Delicious and Healthy Summer Smoothie

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time in a kitchen, so I’ve decided to try to make more recipes to share with everyone.

Few days ago, I got blender. I was actually inspired several days ago when I went to this Mexican restaurant and ordered a cocktail, which turned out to be a smoothie. I randomly chose one from the photos and when I tasted it,  it was surprisingly delicious. So I thought I’d get a blender for my kitchen and start experimenting with different kinds of cocktails, also in preparation for summer. Here’s the smoothie I came up with:

smoothie 1


  • Fresh strawberries
  • Frozen (or fresh) blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • few fresh mint leafs
  • few ice cubes

(You can put as much as you want, it depending on the number of people you’re going to serve the drinks to)

smoothie 2

Put some ice cubes into the blender (try to choose not so big ones, to make it easier to blend)

smoothie 3

Add blueberries — it doesn’t matter if it’s fresh or frozen

smoothie 4

Add banana slices (if you will make for more than two persons I suggest to put more of this fruit, but it still depends on how thick you want your smoothie to be)

smoothie 5

Put in delicious strawberries. Take out the green leaves and cut in a half.

smoothie 6

Add some fresh mint leaves as well.

smoothie 7

Add orange juice and blend it.

smoothie 8

That’s it! You can choose to make it more presentable by serving it in special glasses. I personally love to drink this in the morning because it’s refreshing and makes me energetic all day. It’s not only healthy and delicious, it’s perfect for the coming summer season.
