Sip on the season's fruitiest flavors with these four easy-to-make recipes.

As the weather heats up, we’re reaching for something refreshing to cool off on hot summer days. Enter: fruity, creamy summer smoothies. These blended bevs are not only easy to make, but celebrate the best of the season's fruit in the most creative ways. Melting in that sweltering sun? Throw these fresh ingredients into the blender for easy-to-make healthy smoothie recipes you’ll be drinking all season long. 

These recipes let summer flavors shine with bright citrus, strawberries and juicy peaches. Looking to get in more greens? Fruit may take the main stage, but hidden veggies also shine: Carrot blends seamlessly into a sweet mango smoothie, while spinach gives a nutrient boost to a delicious banana-honey option. Switch up your usual routine by making these slurpable drinks into smoothie bowls! Greek yogurt turns a tart raspberry smoothie into a thick, creamy mixture, perfect for topping with kiwi, coconut flakes, or chia seeds. The best thing about these summer drinks? They’re quick (less than 5 minutes!) and oh so simple to whip up, so you’ll be relaxing by the pool in no time. 

Whether you’re looking for a more substantial summer drink recipe or a quick breakfast idea, blend up one of these fruity drinks for a new staple smoothie. Pick your favorite recipe (or try all four), pour it into your favorite fun glass and get to sippin’ in the sun!
