Do like to start of your day with a smoothie? Smoothies are a great way to add extra nutrition to your diet and feed your hunger. They can even be a simple tasty treat to enjoy as a snack or at the end of the day. They are so easy to make at home too! When making your own at home smoothie, put a little Silk in your smoothie.
Silk products are a great part of your Smoothie Solution. Whether you are looking for a smoothie with more protein, fewer calories, creaminess, indulgence, exotic flavor, or dairy free yogurt flavor and creaminess, Silk is a great base to make a better smoothie.
I love the fact that I can use Silk products to make a creamy smoothie with fewer calories and an extra boost the nutrition. I like to make a simple smoothie using half a banana, some frozen fruit, and Silk’s Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk or Coconutmilk.
The almondmilk works great in any smoothie, but I especially love it in a triple berry smoothie. However, when I want more of a tropical flavor, I go for the coconut milk. I love to get a bag of frozen tropical fruit that includes mangos, pineapple, and strawberries for this smoothie. This is probaby my favorite.
I always us a half banana in my smoothies too. Banana adds some nice sweetness to my smoothie along with added creaminess. A splash of lemon juice helps bring out the flavors of the fruit, however this is optional.

Basic Frozen Fruit Smoothie
Real Mom Kitchen
- 1 cup Silk Almondmilk or Coconutmilk
- 1 cup frozen fruit
- ½ banana
- splash of lemon juice optional
- ice if needed
- In a blender, add your Silk milk product of choice, frozen fruit, 1/2 banana, and splash of lemon juice. Blend until smooth and well combined.
- Check the thickness of your smoothie. If needed you can add a couple ice cubes and blend again to thicken. However, I find my smoothie is usually just fine without the added ice. Serves 2.
