Frozen Fruit Smoothie Recipe [Cool Down #1]

This is the beginning of a little series that I'm going to be doing this summer, it's called cool down, and I will post beverage recipes that I think would be perfect in the hot, very hot, summer time.  I'm starting it off with a classic frozen fruit smoothie recipe and will go from there.  Some other cool downs that I have in mind are, frozen milkshakes, homemade lemonade, iced coffee, and we'll see what else I come up with in the meantime...  Do you have any beverage ideas that you think would be perfect for the cool down?  Please share them with me!  Okay, now that you get the whole idea, let's start!

I LOVE fruit, seriously, if you gave me money to go to the grocery store, I would probably come back with nothing but raspberries, strawberries, kiwis, and every other fruit out there!  So, to quench my love for fruit, I like making fruit smoothies.  Sadly though, for some reason, I rarely ever make them!  I just always forget that fruit smoothies are always an option!  Anyway, it was a Sunday night, I was lazy and hungry, so I made these yummy frozen fruit smoothies.  Ah, and they were amazing!  They were the perfect beverage for a hot summer (and humid) night, were so easy to make, and were very filling.  Not to mention these fruit smoothies are very healthy for you, which is always a plus!  What else can I say, these fruit smoothies were amazing and you need to make them.  The end.

Frozen Fruit Smoothie serves 5
2 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cup apple juice
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Add all of your fruit into a blender, then pour wet ingredients on top.  Pulse until the fruit is all chopped up and everything is well combined.  You may want to add more apple juice or milk depending on the thickness you want.  These measurements made a nice creamy consistency that I could easily sip through a straw.  Yes, I will defiantly be making this again, very soon.

All pictures taken with my new lens!  Oh, and sorry for not blogging very much lately!  It has been pretty busy, but hopefully the end of June will mark the beginning of a calmer summer.

P.S. My sister and I are taking my cousins wedding photos in a few weeks!  Eeeks!
P.P.S.  It's 86 degrees out today.  Oh my, it's hot, I need another fruit smoothie. :)
