Pink and Red Smoothies for February


pink peanut butter smoothie

Hey ladies!

Well, the month of February is here! Suddenly every time you go to the store to pick up a few groceries, you face at least one if not multiple walls of isles covered in pink and red goodies… probably mostly chocolate! It’s tough to fight the temptation to get yourself some, because honestly, who can resist a 99¢ box of chocolates?

Well, I’m all for treating yourself now and then, but here are some pink and red goodies for your every day health. Whether you’re celebrating Valentines Day or Galentines Day (Parks and Rec., anyone?), these smoothies are easy to make and taste great, and you can keep making them any other day of the year too!

Pink Peanut Butter Smoothie

I love this smoothie, since it’s super simple and fast for rushed morning or a snack on a lazy afternoon! The flavor isn’t overpowering, and it’s not too sweet either. Definitely a strawberry lovers treat.

 

  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 1 ½ cups of milk of your choice (Almond, soy, whatever you want! I used low fat [1%] cows milk.)
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Notes from the writer:

For me, I like things a little sweet! So, after pouring the smoothie into my glass and tasting it, I decided to add just a little bit more honey, but you don’t want to add too much! Also, if you have fresh strawberries, try throwing them in the freezer the day before making the smoothie. Frozen strawberries from the store don’t always have as much flavor as fresh strawberries, so this might strengthen the strawberry flavor or maybe make it a little sweeter without adding any more honey.

 

Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie

 

This smoothie is almost the opposite of the last- it bursts with flavor and is very sweet! So much that I wasn’t sure what I thought upon first tasting it, but by the second sip I loved it!

 

  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 ¼ cup of apple juice
  • 5 frozen strawberries (this can be adjusted if you want more or less of a strawberry flavor! I would recommend putting in a little more.)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of honey

Notes from the writer:

Like I said in the description, this smoothie is very sweet! While I did put in honey, you probably won’t need any, considering how much apple juice is called for. Also, in order to keep this on the healthiest side, try not to use apple juice with a bunch of artificial junk in it or added sugars. I used Simply Apple juice, which is 100% only apple juice! It might cost an extra dollar or two, but it tastes so much better and your body will thank you.

 

Berry Burst Smoothie

A beautiful shade of red for that Valentines Day weekend! Or any other day of the year, for that matter. Love love love the berry flavor!

 

  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen, your pick!)
  • 1 ¼ cups of apple juice

Notes from the writer:

This is pretty much the best berry smoothie I’ve ever made. Super simple, sweet, and delicious! Once again, try to stick with all natural apple juice so you don’t get any additional sweeteners that you don’t need. The sweetness of the juice and the berries is plenty on its own! Also, I personally love when a smoothie has good consistency, like this one does! It makes you feel like you spent $5 on a smoothie when you really made it yourself.

 

I loved making these simple smoothies, and they were so good! Try them out yourself and comment below what your favorite was, or give us your own recipe for a delicious smoothie!

 

Stay healthy, Smart Girls!
