Real Fruit Smoothies: A Delicious Meal Replacement for Those Excruciatingly Hot Days

Summertime. The very word evokes memories of hot days spent in the sun with nothing to do but be lazy, go swimming, or play outdoors.  Although you would love to be able to play all day in the great outdoors, the truth is that you still have basic human needs to attend to, such as sleeping and eating.  While it is easy to take care of the sleeping part, even in the outdoors, eating requires a bit more work on your part if it is going to be enjoyable.  Luckily for you, we have a great way for you to satiate your hunger without having to heat up your kitchen or slave away inside all day.  That way is through the use of our smoothie mixes to create real fruit smoothies any time, day or night.

Real fruit smoothies offer you the benefits of being filled with the nutrients your body needs to function well, without having to worry about the time and effort it takes to fix a full course meal. Not only that, but real fruit smoothies are the perfect meal replacement for those dog days of summer, when anything else is too heavy on your stomach.  To prove what a perfect meal replacement option our real fruit smoothies are, here’s a fun recipe:


Start with a pouch of Blender Boyz Berry Smoothie and a cup of ice, then add:

3/4 cup of low-fat plain yogurt

3 oz. orange juice

2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk

1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend until smooth.

As you can see, this smoothie has your protein, your dairy, your fruit and even your grain serving!  At Blender Boyz, we have smoothie mixes that can be used to concoct just about any smoothie recipe you can imagine.  We’ve even got lots of recipes on our blog for you to peruse, experiment with and create your own delicious real fruit smoothie.  When you need that light meal on those hot days, simply pull out one of our smoothie mixes.  Let us help you take it easy this summer.
