This smoothie with ice cream recipe is such an easy and healthy staple that you can enjoy any time of year!
I can still remember the hot, humid, summer days in the northern midwest. My parents would always have ice cold lemonade or smoothies and I tell you, I got addicted!
Smoothies are amazingly refreshing and great to cool you off when it’s blazing hot outside.
However, those smoothies weren’t always the most healthy, and full of sugars.
Nonetheless, I continued to drink them throughout college, and it became an easy convenience. Also, I truly felt I was “doing a healthy thing” by drinking smoothies instead of pop or plain fruit juice.
Now, I create my own smoothies and it is so much fun adding in nutrient dense foods and creating an array of different types of smoothies!
So, the wait is over my friends.
