Fruit Smoothie Time with Monin!

Friday April 26, 2013 // By Liam Bucher

It’s such a wonderful day, blue skies, light breezes and an uplifting spirit lingering around. It’s amazing how influential the weather can be towards your attitude, outlook and behavior. Open up the blinds and let in the sunshine, take a few minutes every now and then to gaze out the window and ease your thoughts. Normally at this time I would be moving on to my next cup of coffee, but I’m feeling jovial, so I’m going to capitalize on this feeling today. Instead of making another cup of coffee, I’m going to reach for the blender and make a deliciously cold Frosted Fruit Limeade with Monin Fruit Smoothie Mix.

The hint of citrus behind the flavorful Monin Strawberry Smoothie Mix is undeniably refreshing and a nice way to change up your drink choices for the day. I’m partial to strawberry smoothies and shakes, but there is an endless amount of smoothies you can create using different flavored syrups, adding shots of espresso for an extra kick, or just getting plain strange (aka creative) with your blender.

There are different ways to make smoothies/slushes/freezes by mixing ice, fruit, yogurt, syrups, concentrates and purees. I won’t say that there is a better technique, simply because there isn’t, each process creates a different texture and taste, you just need to decide what you want your end result to be and move from there.

Here is the recipe for the Frosted Fruit Limeade I touched on at the beginning of post:
