The Pink Princess Summer Fruit Smoothie

The Pink Princess Summer Fruit Smoothie

Sometimes I think summer is going to last forever in Texas. With the temp going up to 103°F some days and barely being able to breathe walking outside. In Houston, you can almost always cut the humidity with a knife, but it feels much hotter than it normally does. I’ve been searching for recipes that would keep me cool, and this Pink Princess Summer Fruit Smoothie does it.

One reason I really adore this recipe is its solid source of vitamins, its ability to keep you hydrated, and it’s not too sweet or carb heavy so you won’t crash. I also love that It lets my laziness shine for breakfast. I don’t know about you guys, but I like my sleep. Anything that I can just throw together, grab and go with in the morning is my breakfast hero.

This recipe calls for a lot of refreshing summer fruits: peaches, strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, and grapes. You can add a banana in for some thickness, but It all binds together with some refreshing coconut water. I call it the Pink Princess because once everything is blended together, it’s this lovely light pink color!

I also like that I can get most of these fruits year-round in Texas, so this drink doesn’t have to stay completely seasonal, I can enjoy it almost all year-round. It’s hot outside though, so this is a solid choice for now!

Check out the recipe below, and let me know what your go-to breakfast smoothies are!

    This sounds so delicious and refreshing! I love how healthy it is too. We don’t always get quite as hot in WI, but this will be great on any day.

    This sounds like a great combination of fresh ingredients! I love the idea of adding melon, which I usually don’t do.

    Do you use ice or is the fruit frozen? Or is the coconut water chilled?

      That’s a great question! I used frozen fruit and cold coconut water to make this. Ice waters it down a lot, so I would recommend using frozen, or cold fruit!
