Two Semi-Healthy Smoothie-Cocktails

Okay, you’re probably thinking: Healthy cocktails? There is no such thing! While that’s probably true, these cocktails include some very healthy ingredients in addition to the obvious alcohol. They’re smoothie-cocktails, or smocktails, as I have dubbed them (still not sure I like the name, though).

I hung out with two of my best friends yesterday, and we decided to make our own smoothie-cocktails instead of going for good old wine as our drink of choice. That’s when these two delicious smocktails were born. Especially the first one (left picture), the Blueberry Banana Smocktail, is sooo good! But the Strawberry Smocktail was delicious as well. I didn’t plan on writing a blogpost about these, but they turned out so great that I couldn’t not share them with you. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera with me to my friend’s house, so these pictures were taken with my phone. You can’t see the colours very well, sorry about that! Trust me when I tell you they’re amazing, though.

Now, onto the recipes! I’m afraid the measurements aren’t extremely precise since we just threw some stuff together (or, my friend threw some stuff together and we watched), but that shouldn’t be too big of a problem. Oh, one more thing: you’ll need a blender for these recipes.

Smocktails

Banana Blueberry Smocktail (left)

  • 250 g frozen blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • Some crushed ice
  • White rum
  • 1 large glass of strawberry squash (so, with the water!)

This is enough for at least four (large) glasses. Probably a bit more.

Instructions: Put the blueberries, crushed ice and the rum in the blender. I’m not really sure how much rum we used (we added some to our glasses afterwards as well). It’s up to you, really, how strong you want your smocktail to be. Blend them for a bit, and then add the banana and the strawberry squash and blend some more. Transfer to glasses and add a straw (because straws are fun). Enjoy!


 Strawberry Smocktail (right)

  • 500 g frozen strawberries
  • 50 cl prosecco
  • Some crushed ice
  • About half a (normal) glass of strawberry squash syrup, perhaps a bit more (so, without the water!)

This is enough for at least four (large) glasses. Probably a bit more.

Instructions: Put the frozen strawberries, the prosecco, the crushed ice and the strawberry squash syrup in the blender and blend! That’s it. Transfer to glasses and enjoy!

There you have it! Two easypeasy recipes for the most delicious smoothie-cocktails! We had loads of fun making (and drinking) them. I hope you do, too!
