It is hot these days and getting hotter every single year. Fortunately, there are many different ways to beat the heat. But, if you don’t have air conditioning, a pool or live near high-elevation mountains, your options are a bit more limited.
One of our favorite ways to beat the heat is with a cool drink. Sure, you can grab an ice cold soda, but as we have seen, sodas are not very good for you. You could also grab a milk shake, but who wants all of those calories and fat? No, the best drink we have found to cool you off in the heat is a smoothie.
Not only are smoothies cool, but they can taste great and be packed with nutrition as well, if you make them right. We started making smoothies about a year ago and now make them pretty much every day. During that time, we have tried many different smoothie recipes, including some that are very bad and some that are so good that you won’t believe that it is a smoothie and not a shake.
Below are our favorite 3 recipes. We come back to them time and time again as they are healthy and delicious.

I am currently training to run a half marathon with my Mom. Yes, I said my Mom! She is 62 and has only started running two years ago. I could not be more proud of her. This will be my fourth half marathon in four years and you would think I would have the training figured out by now but I don’t. I still have a difficult time with my nutrition and hydration before and after a long run. I am continuing to search for an all natural energy drink for help during my long runs, but I think I have figured out my work out recovery drink. It is called the Green Monster and it has truly made a difference in my recovery, as well as my energy levels. Read more on Green Monster Smoothie…
