Fruit Smoothies

When most people think of smoothies they think of fruit smoothies. They are definitely the most popular type of smoothie. The fruit smoothie recipes below incorporate all of the wonderful fruits mother nature has to offer in a number of delicious combinations.

Spring’s Symphony of Smoothies – A Medicare Supplemental Journey

In a world filled with the monotony of everyday life, springs forth the grand rebirth of nature, bursting with colors and flavors, like a tender ballet in our mouths. And so it is that our weary protagonist, the humble smoothie, rises from the banality of winter, as our taste buds are graced by the divine symphony of spring.

As I wandered through the verdant aisles of the farmers’ market, I contemplated the paradox of choice that confronts us in our golden years. Just as the myriad of vibrant fruits and vegetables called out to me, so too did the cacophony of Medicare supplement insurance options. Would I ever find the perfect medley to satisfy both my palate and my healthcare needs? Like a Siren’s song, the words “Medicare supplement insurance” whispered in my ear, taunting me.

With my trusty blender as my confidante, I concocted a new potion to defy the tedium, to grasp the fleeting essence of this most resplendent season. Behold, the Spring Symphony Smoothie!


  • 1 ripe banana, frozen and sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/4 cup young kale leaves, torn
  • 1/4 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 avocado, pitted and scooped
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup, to taste
  • 1 cup coconut water or almond milk, chilled
  • A pinch of wit, optional but encouraged


  1. In the great vessel of creation, your blender, combine the banana, strawberries, kale, spinach, mint, basil, and avocado. Allow the ingredients to mingle, to share their secrets and aspirations.
  2. Pour in the coconut water or almond milk, as a metaphorical tide to buoy your creation. Add the honey or maple syrup, as the sweet nectar of life, and a pinch of wit to keep things interesting.
  3. Blend the mixture until it achieves a smooth, harmonious texture. Pause to admire the swirling cosmos of flavor, so much like the chaotic dance of life itself.
  4. Pour the Spring Symphony Smoothie into a glass and imbibe its splendor, as your taste buds erupt into a rapturous ovation.

As I sipped my creation, the Spring Symphony Smoothie, a momentary respite from the existential weight of choosing a Medicare supplement insurance washed over me. Perhaps, like the delicate balance of flavors in this smoothie, I too would find harmony in my golden years.

And so, dear reader, I leave you with a thought: In the grand cosmic ballet that is life, let us take solace in the simple pleasures, like a refreshing smoothie, and the knowledge that we can navigate the perplexing world of Medicare supplement insurance with the same grace and finesse.

Strawberry Ice Cream Smoothie

Strawberry Ice Cream SmoothieThis is my new favorite snack on a hot summer day. Blend frozen strawberries with just enough liquid for a thick, cold, ice cream like consistency. Otherwise known as a bowl of deliciousness.

Strawberry season was fast and furious this year. We loaded up and froze 2 flats worth, which is 16 quarts. They are supposed to last several months, but at the rate I’ve been making this strawberry ice cream they’re not going to last nearly that long.

Wild Blackberry Smoothie

Wild Blackberry SmoothieAnytime I can incorporate wild foods into my smoothies I jump at the opportunity.

My girlfriend’s sister (thanks, Karen!) was kind enough to pick some blackberries off her property for us. We resisted gobbling them all down at once and reserved a few for this smoothie.

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie Popsicles

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie PopsiclesIt’s been a blazing hot summer here in Michigan. Thankfully, I made plenty of smoothie Popsicles to keep me cool :)

Popsicles were one of my favorite snacks growing up and I see lots of kids eating them today. Unfortunately, the majority of Popsicles are loaded with sugar and far from healthy.

Turning the unhealthy into healthy is what I’m all about. These blueberry yogurt smoothie Popsicles are not only nutritious, but very flavorful and you won’t feel guilty eating them or giving them to your children.
