Smoothies That Taste Like Milkshakes But Healthier

smoothies that taste like milkshakes but healthier

Who doesn't like a delicious milkshake? Kids certainly like them. What if you could make a healthy smoothie that tastes like milkshakes? With some simple tricks you certainly can. You can make an icy, thick smoothie that’s tasty and nutritious. You probably will want to have these smoothies every day because they're  so yummy, refreshing and healthy.

Start with a frozen fruit. Freeze some strawberries, peaches, blueberries, and banana. They’re great for making a healthy smoothie that looks like a milk shake.

Place them in the blender together with some milk or yogurt. Vanilla flavored yogurt will add some extra sugar aside from flavor and body. If you want a smoothie that is less sweet, you can use plain yogurt or even Greek yogurt with either enough ripe fruit or a little natural sweetener like agave or maple syrup. Blend it all up adding extra milk or liquid to have the consistency you want.

A great base for a smoothie that you can make is a mixture of frozen banana, milk and a bit of vanilla extract. This tastes and feels almost like vanilla ice cream, perfect for getting the taste of milkshakes. Add some other frozen fruits like peach, strawberry, and even pineapple for a delicious treat.

You can most certainly try other fruits you like. Avocado is delicious and nutritious. It makes a very creamy smoothie. You will love its creamy, smooth flavor and texture. Want to make something like a chocolate milkshake? Try mixing avocado, banana, cocoa powder, ice and a little bit of milk. You can also use soy milk, rice milk, almond milk or any other milk like product to replace regular dairy. This is good for those who are lactose-intolerant.

Put peanut butter to come up with a smooth texture to your smoothies. If you want a delicious peanut butter chocolate shake, use the suggested recipe above, but put a spoonful of peanut butter to the mix before you blend it all.

Ice cubes -- add these to a smoothie to make it thick and give the feel of an ice cream without the extra calories. Play around with how much ice you can put in your smoothie. Check if your blender can handle the grinding and mixing of ice cubes.

Go fast on the liquids and keep blending. For a thick, creamy smoothie, remember to go light on the liquid. Overall, just enjoy, blend away and continue making delicious milkshake like healthy treats.
