I saw this in Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

It’s a list of ingredients that you can mix & match to make a variety of different fruit Smoothies.

I figure since my Easy To Make Strawberry Smoothies recipe has done so well through the years (I think it was one of the first articles I ever wrote here at The Fun Times Guide), that I must have a loyal following of Smoothie lovers by now.

So here’s a fun way to make lots of Smoothies of various flavors.

 

Mix And Match Smoothie Ingredients

Instructions:

Blend 1/4 cup Liquid ingredient + 1/2 cup Creamy ingredient + 1 cup Fruit + enough Flavor to taste + 2 to 3 teaspoons of Nutrition Bonus.

I love my kitchen... and I like to cook. But my #1 requirement is that recipes have fewer than 7 ingredients (or arrive on my doorstep via a food delivery service). My absolute favorite thing about being in the kitchen is trying out new gadgets, cookware, and storage containers! I'm SUPER organized in the kitchen (and everywhere else) and I have every gadget I could possibly need neatly and compactly tucked away until I need it. I share only the simplest recipes (which is great for people who don't like to cook), along with time-saving food tips and cooking tricks (that will save you time and money). When I'm not cooking, cleaning, or organizing my kitchen... you can find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
