We’ve always made smoothies spontaneously and without a recipe. But they’ve been getting a bit boring – always some berry-kefir-kale combination. I wanted to come up with a few “house” smoothie recipes with fun names. Kids love that.
This fits in the direction I’m going with food preparation – a little more planning and building a repertoire of family favorites. I’m doing this for my own sanity, cost savings and developing a system for teaching my kids to cook – mastering one recipe at a time.
This was inspired by a smoothie with the same name from a juice bar in Seaside, Florida – Raw & Juicy.
Pink Panther Smoothies
2 Cups Apple Juice (see note below)
1 Cup Ice Cubes
Blend, pour into a fancy glass and sip together.
Note: This smoothie is sweet! Sweeter than the smoothies we usually make. We were recreating a particular smoothie from a juice bar. To make it less sweet, replace the juice with coconut water or use half juice, half water.
