Smoothie (Non Dairy)

I have been making smoothies for Jennifer. She prefers the non-dairy type, but I have made others using yogurt.


Small blender—I have the NutriBullet, but there are others like Hamilton Beach. A large kitchen blender can also be used in space of a small one.

Taste of Summer Smoothie

2 cups watermelon

1-cup pineapple

½-cup blueberries

¼ water

A Trip to the Tropics

2 cups fresh peaches

1 cup frozen pineapple

½-cup blueberries

¼ cup crushed ice

Confectioners’ sugar or honey (optional)


To freeze fruit like watermelon or pineapple: Cut fruit into large cubes and place in a zip top bag. Lay bag flat with fruit only one layer high. Freeze overnight.

Add fresh fruit, enough to fill a large NutriBullet halfway with a small amount of liquid. This can be water or rum. Blend. Add fruit to almost full (leave room to fit on the top with blades). Blend. Serve.

NOTES:   The fruit can be changed to any combination that does not have icky seeds! If the smoothie turns out too tart say from the blueberries, add a tablespoon of confectioners’ sugar or honey.
