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.
½orangepeeled and seeds removed
½mangopeeled and pit removed
½heaping cup chopped carrot
Fresh and Green
Juice of ½ lime
1cupchopped pink dragon fruit
½applepeeled or unpeeled
½inchknob peeled gingerpeeled
Handful baby spinach
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.
