Summer Refreshers

Author : Ashley Madden
Prep Time: 5 mins
Servings: 2 servings
Three delicious options to upgdrade your summer beverage game! These blended concoctions are thin and hydrating but will have some fibres since we're using the whole food! I highly suggest serving with lots of ice! Enjoy as a light start to your day, at brunch, or as a mocktail! Each recipe makes 2 servings.




Vitamin Summer

  • ½ orange peeled and seeds removed
  • ½ mango peeled and pit removed
  • ½ heaping cup chopped carrot
  • 1 cup water
  • Ice optional

Fresh and Green

  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 kiwi peeled
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 cup water
  • Ice optional

Pink Passion

  • 1 cup chopped pink dragon fruit
  • ½ apple peeled or unpeeled
  • ½ inch knob peeled ginger peeled
  • Handful baby spinach
  • ¾ cup water
  • Ice optional

Optional Chia Seed Addition (step 2)

  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds


  • Choose your refresher. Add all the ingredients (except ice) to a blender and blend until smooth. Divide among 2 glasses and serve with ice.
  • If using chia seeds, pour the entire refresher into a container with tight fitting lid, add the chia seeds, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Place in the fridge for 15 to 30 minutes (or longer for thicker results). Shake two to three times throughout to ensure the chia seeds aren't clumped together. Serve and enjoy!


If serving as a mocktail, make these refreshers a little fancy by garnishing with fresh herbs, sliced lemon or lime, or fresh fruit.
