Start an Afternoon Tradition: 12 Delicious Frozen Drinks

By Emily |

I started a tradition with my kids last summer that I am so excited to bring back now that the weather has warmed up and summer is officially right around the corner.

My kids are always hungry when they wake up from their naps, and need a snack so they can make it through until dinner. So, I started making them healthy smoothies, or other frozen summery drinks, every afternoon, and it became a fun little tradition for us.

What better way to give them their snack and get some extra nutrition in them at the same time, all while they think they are getting a special treat every day?

And kids love to help make smoothies and other drinks! They can add the ingredients to the blender and push the buttons — just make sure the lid is on before they push start!

I’ve been gathering recipes to make for our afternoon smoothie snacks this summer. Here are 12 of the best ones I’ve found:

Healthy and Delicious Frozen Summer Drinks

Basic Fruit Smoothie

Fruit smoothies are so easy to throw together using whatever ingredients you have on hand. This basic fruit smoothie recipe is pretty similar to how we make ours, but I use plain yogurt, and a fresh, not frozen banana. You can use just about any combination of frozen fruit, and they always come out delicious!
