Tasty Homemade Shake & Smoothie Recipes

While having a broken jaw and my mouth wired shut for a month, I made the best out of a terrible situation and grew to become quite an experimental and creative drink maker. I made countless smoothies and milkshakes, some that were easier to drink or tastier than others. I tried to make these drinks contain at least one or two healthy ingredients, so I didn’t feel completely guilty while indulging in these dessert-like cold drinks. I didn’t always write down the recipes, although some of the drinks I made were too good to forget. Below are all the ingredients you need for each drink. Combine all into a blender and blend for a few minutes until your desired liquid consistency. Happy blending!

  • 1 banana
  • 1 Fage yogurt w/Lime fruit on side

  • 1/2 C frozen pineapple & mango  chunks
