Dried apricots, yogurt, and orange juice come together in an exotic-tasting morning libation: think mango lassi, but with apricots instead.
'Smoothie' on Serious Eats
Some of the smoothies and juices we tested this past month are vibrant and green, some sweet and mellow. Here they all are, in case you're looking for a little inspiration for your still-kinda-the-New-Year-resolutions.
For me, melon with a squeeze of lime is the perfect way to start the morning: mellow and sweet, brightened up by the tart lime. A dish of yogurt alongside and I'm good to go. This smoothie captures those flavors in drinkable form.
A tangy peach smoothie with a hit of ginger and maple syrup, inspired by the flavors of summer fruit desserts.
A rich berry-avocado smoothie that pays homage to the Golden State.
Lately, ripe bananas have been getting on my nerves. I cleaned out my freezer and was straight up horrified at the number of shriveled, black, completely freezer-burnt bananas that I found shoved in every possible crevice.
Remember those summer mornings of your childhood, sitting on the porch in Maine? No? Well, don't worry about it—start making those memories now with this blueberry smoothie.
The chain has rolled out three new smoothies that start with whole fruits and vegetables, like kale paired with mangoes and carrots with chia seeds and oranges. Could Jamba Juice pull off this fibrous endeavor and come up with something enjoyable to drink? We tasted our way through the lineup.
This tamarind and coconut-enhanced take on a traditional lassi is downright refreshing. It is a little tart with just the right amount of sweet and smooth.
A chocolate-banana smoothie inspired by Arrested Development and the Bluth Banana Stand.
Freshly squeezed tangerine juice has a ton of flavor, so when it came time to make a smoothie, I knew that I wanted it to anchor the drink.To create a healthy creamiscle vibe, I added Greek yogurt and just a touch of honey.
We'll be sharing a new smoothie or juice recipe every weekday this month, but I figured I'd start easy: this recipe has just three ingredients. The key: unsweetened kefir, which you can get in the dairy aisle of your grocery store.
Do your New Year's resolutions include getting more kale and other greens into your diet? More fruit? Finally starting to eat breakfast? Making better use of that fancy blender or juicer that's languishing on your kitchen counter? Whether you're looking for a vitamin-packed snack or vegan workout fuel—or you're just seeking out a few booze-free drink ideas—we hope these recipes help.
This is my gateway green smoothie. As the name suggests, it's a mellow, entry level substance that may lead to a future risk of consuming more hardcore versions of blended greens. If you've been watching your friends get pulled down the green smoothie hatch and want to know what it's all about without a lot of commitment, this is the place to dip a toe in.
We'll talk favorite ingredients, all-important smoothie texture, add-ins for protein and sweetness, and tips for getting the most out of your equipment. We'll discuss regular fruit-based and other sweet smoothies as well as savory smoothies, and we'll answer lots of questions about how to make those ubiquitous, sometimes hazardous-looking green smoothies work for you.
This smoothie blitzes two cups of cherries into a drink that's equally good for breakfast or dessert, despite using only fruit for sweetness. It's vegan, if you're into that sort of thing, but tastes like it might be packing a scoop of ice cream because of the vanilla and the slight creaminess that homemade almond milk contributes.
The new drink is an icy blend of blueberries and raspberries that we found quite refreshing, if a bit thick and weighty should you get the optional dose of yogurt (we did).
With summer just around the corner, and even a few sunny days under our belts, it's finally time to shed our heavy winter oatmeal breakfasts and hot soup lunches in favor of lighter, brighter ones. Like, say, big, colorful fruit and vegetable-packed smoothies. Whether you're seeking breakfast-on-the-go or an after-school snack, these 6 smoothies are the best Portland has to offer.
The original Frozen Monkey came from Hoboken, NJ's erstwhile cafe of the same name. That establishment was Hoboken's first Tasti D Lite purveyor, back when at least a certain segment of the population could utter such facts with genuine enthusiasm. The original shake combined brewed coffee, a sliced banana, and the Tasti D flavor of your choice. It was genuinely delicious and arguably breakfast. We went through a lot together.
Some people refer to kefir as 'runny yogurt', but this fermented milk drink might actually have more in common with kombucha. Although the rich, sour drink is strangely addictive on its own, kefir also makes a perfect tart background for both sweet and savory smoothies. Get your blender ready!
