Smoothies Will Keep Your Guests Fresh in the Heat
Slowly but steadily, temperatures are rising each day and give way to sunny outdoor parties. Late-spring and summer are for many, the best time to have a casual party, relaxing and mingling in the garden, preferably under shade (unless it’s an evening party).
When a summer outdoor party is in order, a cool refreshing drink is a must! You don’t want your guests melting away as they stand around waiting for the main event of the afternoon. Plan a selection of fruit-filled, cold, and refreshing smoothie-style drinks to keep your guests fresh and comfortable.
Smoothies are easy to make, nutritious, and will keep your guests happy! All you need is a blender, tall glasses, and straws. You don’t have to wait for the sun to go down to enjoy a festive gathering of friends and family; set up your backyard with a smoothie bar and let everyone be creative. You may want to choose a few simple recipes to give your guests some ideas, or just create a card with all of the ingredients you plan to offer and let them choose the combination they like best. Here are some easy fruit combinations to get you started on your blending fun!
Here’s Our Secret from Pro Party Planners for the Best Smoothies
To keep your smoothies from tasting watered down, freeze your fruit and blend it frozen. This should eliminate the need for adding ice to achieve the consistency you desire.
3 Easy Summer Smoothies to Keep Your Guests Cool
1. Tropical Sunset – 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup mango, 3 cups orange juice, and 1 tsp. of grated fresh ginger. Add more liquid as needed to achieve consistency.
2. Watermelon Wave- 3 cups cubed watermelon (seeds removed) and 1 tbs. fresh lime juice! Extra liquid should not be needed as watermelon is full of its own juice.
3. Beach Breeze – 1/2 cup blueberry, 1/2 cup strawberry, and 1 cup coconut milk. Add water as needed to achieve consistency.
