Libby’s Summer Smoothies Giveaway


The fine folks over at Libby’s sent me a couple of recipes for smoothies (Tutti Frutti and Double Peach). What perfect timing — making smoothies for my little one is on my To-Do list. Thanks to Libby (Twitter | Facebook), I’m also giving away an assortment of Libby’s Fruit and Acrylic Hurricane glasses.

I made the Tutti Frutti smoothie over the weekend. Because the toddler is allergic to dairy, I used So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt (dairy and soy free). The verdict: the toddler loves it, which is practically a miracle because he is a very picky eater. That’s why he lost weight in almost every single weigh-in since his nasal feeding tube was removed three months ago. Two of my three other kids also like the Tutti Frutti smoothie. Next weekend, I plan on making the Double Peach smoothie with So Delicious Coconut Milk and Yogurt.

  1. I love the Double Peach Smoothie. My mom has made that before and it is a great summer drink to have while cooling off in the pool.

  2. I am a subscriber and I liked you on facebook. I made my first smoothie yesterday-fresh strawberries and yogurt. Hmmm! Healthy and delicious.

  3. My favorite smoothie is made simply with frozen raspberries and Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Milk Kefir. YUMMY!

  4. I love strawberry banana, pina colada, and cherry vanilla. Some awesome smoothies! A mango flavored one also does the trick! :)

  5. When I have lots of extra cash I go for the Planet Smoothie Lean Lemonade but, making them at home would be terrific! I’ve never thought of using yogurt! I’ll be trying this soon, thank you!

    For Soja smoothie:

    1/2 bottle of soja, 6 pcs. slice of strawberry , a little of raspberry add cube of ice and viola serve it with cup cakes is best for a bit soury sweet flavor but best for children.
