There’s nothing better than a smoothie on a hot summer day. Chock full of fruit, cold, delicious, and good for you! Now, lately, I’ve been making these little contraptions I love to call “frozen smoothie starters.” With the abundance of fruit being in season, now is a great time to put together some frozen smoothie starters and have them waiting in the freezer. This idea was inspired by a cool snack that Ree, aka The Pioneer Woman, did on her Food Network show. I love me some Ree!
P.S.- we have fallen in love with the Silk Fruit & Protein here! It’s been on sale, so we’ve been able to have it as a fridge staple for the past month. The kids love to have it as a snack once Sonny comes home from school.
I added all the fruit in a big bowl. I halved the grapes and I cut up the bananas. I actually only used 1 banana, 1 can of mandarin oranges (drained), and 1 can of pineapple chunks (with juice). This looks good right on it’s own, right?
Next, I added in about 1/4th cup of Silk Fruit & Protein and stir all together. If you really wanna get wild and crazy, you can add in a teaspoon of vanilla, as well. Are you drooling yet? I am.
Disclosure: Don’t get it twisted. Silk didn’t pay me to mention them in this post. I’m sure they don’t even know that my little blog exists. We’re just big giant fans of Silk. They rocks our taste buds off.
