Taste is just the beginning of why kids and adults alike enjoy sipping a smoothie. Great for when you’re on-the-go, they’re perfect for breakfast, snacks or even dessert. Another reason smoothies are so popular is that they’re easy to make at home. You can use a recipe or create your own with on-hand ingredients.
The following recipe for a Fruit Blast Smoothie is one example of an easy, delicious and nutritious option that can be ready to drink in minutes. The six fruits provide not only a yummy, summery fruit flavor blast, but all the vitamins, antioxidants and fiber you get from fresh fruit. And eggs add a protein punch.
Safest Choice Pasteurized Shell Eggs allow you to add fresh-cracked eggs to smoothies without the risk of foodborne illness from salmonella or other bacteria. The eggs are pasteurized in the shell with a warm water bath, a natural process using precise time and temperature to make them safe to consume raw. A red circle “P” stamped on each egg verifies that the eggs have been pasteurized by the Safest Choice.
