Celebrate National Fruit and Vegetables Month with this Powerhouse Smoothie Recipe

by Cascade Ice on June 4, 2021

June is National Fruit and Vegetables month, and you know we must celebrate! Every balanced diet needs a good dose of fresh fruits and vegetables – after all, they’re chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that ward off disease and premature aging. Alongside a balanced diet, regular servings of fruits and vegetables can even help you manage your weight for a lifetime of good health.

But what if you don’t like the taste of spinach, or you just can’t fathom how you’d achieve your daily requirement of fruits and vegetables while you manage a busy lifestyle? That’s simple – enter our Powerhouse Fruit and Veggie Smoothie!

All you need is access to fresh ingredients, as well as a blender. The great thing about smoothies is that you add what you like and leave out what you don’t like, and many protein powders on the market today are organic and taste great – making them a perfect addition to a fruit and vegetable smoothie. It’s also best to prep your ingredients in advance. Perhaps purchase some reusable freezer storage bags and start an “assembly line” using all the ingredients. That way, all you have to do is pull a bag out of the freezer when you need a quick, protein-packed, filling smoothie. Here’s what you’ll need:

Cascade Ice Powerhouse Fruit and Veggie Smoothie  


1.5 cups of spinach leaves

1 cup of kale

½ cup of strawberries

½ cup of blueberries

3 tbsp. organic protein powder in flavor of your choice

½ cup of almond or oat milk

½ cup of Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Kiwi Strawberry 

2 tbsp. Peanut butter or almond butter

Blend all ingredients together thoroughly, pour in glass and enjoy!
