Resources of the Smoothie with Banana and Apple

This recipe shows you how to make an apple and banana smoothie. Smoothies are easy to make with a blender and can be very healthy with the right contents. While there might be a lot of smoothie recipes that add in yogurt, we don’t usually add dairy into ours.

We focus on fruit and vegetables only, with the vegetables being primarily something like spinach leaves or kale. Kale adds a lot more towards energy and has a bit of kick in the sense it’s a little bit hot if you add a bunch. We mostly use baby spinach leaves. Also, try other beverages such as the Smoothie with Banana and Orange or the Bloody Mary with V-8.

Resources of Fresh Strawberry Daiquiris

This recipe for fresh strawberry daiquiris is incredible. If you want it stronger, just use 1 less cup of water.

About Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris

If you want a quicker version, go ahead and use the frozen 1 pound bag of whole strawberries in place of fresh strawberries. At times, those are actually cheaper than fresh strawberries and the flavor is still great. It saves time as you don’t have to cut the ends of each strawberry. It’s also safer in case you’re making a 2nd batch, as you won’t need to handle a knife after having consumed the first batch.

Also, we’ve tested the Wal-Mart Great Value brand of frozen whole strawberries and they were excellent.

Resources of the Smoothie with Banana and Orange

This is how to make an orange and banana smoothie. It uses frozen or regular fruit. Due to the banana, you’ll benefit the natural potassium. You can plan smoothies ahead by peeling the bananas in advance, halving them, and placing in a large food storage bag for the freezer. They’ll slowly start to darken but they’re still great for an entire month easily. Other fruits can be frozen as well as the spinach leaves. This is the best way to reduce visits to the store and they’re very cold when run through the blender.

Check out this Banana and Apple Smoothie recipe. And try the adult beverages such as the Bloody Mary with V-8.

About this Margarita Recipe Homemade Drink

From the west coast to across the southeast, we’ve found that including all 3 of the primary ingredients will produce a great drink. So, try to always include the triple sec, a good tequila, and the lime juice. While you can use the standard good “Gold” tequila, if you want to step it up, here are 2 of the better tequilas recommended for margaritas: 1) The affordable “Cazadores Tequila Blanco” or 2) the pricier “Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco” for splurging.

Also, you can easily use either simple syrup or sugar; however, if using sugar, absolutely ensure it gets fully dissolved before adding the ice. It might take about 20 seconds of constant stirring; otherwise, this drink might make your tongue cringe. We’ve included the lemon juice as a supplement to the lime to produce that familiar lemon-lime flavor. Hope you enjoy this margarita.
