4 fab smoothies to keep you cool this summer

Ditch the sugary lemonade or fat-laden ice cream and whip up some sweet smoothies. We stuck with plain yogurt, real fruit and no juice to keep ’em from being sugary nightmares (like a lot of smoothies at the mall!). Here are our four faves.

Sweet and Tart Sweetheart Smoothie
Just a bit tangy, this taste just like summer!
•    1 cup of fresh strawberries
•    2 or 3 slices of peeled lemon or 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice 
•    1 cup of ice 
 Plop them in a blender and whirl away.

Mango Peach Island Fusion Smoothie
This is an instant getaway, but would might a light breakfast too.
•    1/2 mango, sliced 
•    1-2 peaches, sliced 
•    1 cup of plain yogurt
•    1 cup of ice 
Pop them all your blender until smooth.

Banana Blueberry Blend Smoothie 
Perf for your post-run snack.
•    Peel one or two bruised bananas (older bananas taste better than newly ripened ones)
•    1 handful of fresh blueberries 
•    1 cup of plain yogurt.
Stick them in the blender and—ta da!--a summery treat. 

Pineapple Coconut Poolside Splash
To sum it up in one word: YUM!
•    4-5 slices pineapple
•    1 cup coconut water
•    1 cup of ice cubes
Blend it together for the ultimate fruity pick-me-up.
