Get Christmas Day off to a refreshing start with this frothy fruit drink. For a festive touch, garnish with a strawberry and a dollop of whipped topping. The pretty pink smoothie make an attractive addition to a yuletide brunch.
“I created this icy treat one very warm day,“ shares Kari Caven from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. “Normally, I would've reached for ice cream, but I'm watching my sugar intake and cholesterol. This fruity beverage is thick, just sweet enough and delicious!“
I like to use my blender and food processor regularly, so this smoothie is popular at our house. They are not only quick and refreshing, but they can be adjusted to include whatever fruit you prefer.—Nicole Harris, Greenbriar, Pennsylvania
We love smoothies, so there isn’t much we don’t use to make unusual combinations. Cream cheese adds an extra special touch to this yummy concoction that our friends and family just love. —Kathy Specht, Clinton, Montana
“This fun recipe is a wonderful way to use up over-ripened bananas and to help my family get 5 daily servings of fruit and veggies,” says Pamela Klim from Bettendorf, Iowa. “It’s so quick, easy and filling—and my kids absolutely love it!”
