Strawberry Mango Fizz Smoothie
I love smoothies, especially during summertime. They’re cold and fruity and creamy–what’s not to love? Oh, that’s right, the calories. My favorite smoothie from a smoothie place that shall remain nameless is over 400 calories. For the medium size. For a smoothie that contains mango, green tea, and vanilla frozen yogurt. Ridiculous, right?

In my quest to find a suitable substitute for smoothies, I started making a drink with fruit, sparkling water, and sorbet. My favorite gelato place back in Madison made something similar and I loved it–it was like a smoothie, but fizzy. So, like, even better than a smoothie. Use any flavor combination of sparkling water, fruit, and sorbet that you like–you really can’t go wrong! And it’s so easy, it hardly even qualifies as a recipe. Here’s what you do:

Pouring sparkling waterCombine 1/2 cup of mango sorbet, 1/4 cup of strawberries (frozen or fresh both work), and 1/2 cup of sparkling water (I’m using citrus flavored water here) in a blender. I like to use my immersion blender because it’s easier to clean afterwards.

Finished Strawberry Mango Fizz SmoothieBlend everything together. That’s it! Now you can enjoy your delicious Strawberry Mango Fizz Smoothie.
