PERFECT SUMMER SMOOTHIE

 

Our daughter, Caroline, and I just made this up!

Ingredients: 

1 frozen banana

1/2 cup fresh mango

1 cup of low-fat organic ice-cream

1 or 2 tablespoons of protein powder

1/4 cup of milk

1/4 cup of apple juice

a splash of orange juice

teaspoon of vanilla

 

Blend all together!  Caroline is obsessed with bananas, so she sliced some up and added them to the top of our creation.

BELEMONINI

 

The tale behind the Bellini is that it was created in the 1930's or 40's at Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. It was named after a favorite painter, Giovanni Bellini. We love the Bellini but didn't want the simple sugar it often requires and wanted to add a twist by adding lemonade.  

Yields: 4 

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces frozen peaches 
  • 3 ounces of lemonade
  • Add honey to taste
  • 16 ounces Champagne 

Preparation:

  1. Pour the peach juice or peach puree into a Champagne glass.  
  2. Slowly add the Champagne.
