Smoothies are my absolute favorite breakfast and snack throughout the summer. They’re so refreshing and easy to make! Now, thanks to Dollar General, it’s even easier than ever to make! They carry a range of delicious V8 Splash® Smoothies that cost just $2 a bottle! My favorite flavor is Strawberry Banana, but they also have flavors like Wild Berry, Tropical Splash, and Mango.

Cool and Creamy Fruit Smoothie recipe

Dollar General shared a delicious cool and creamy smoothies recipe that I couldn’t wait to try out. Take a look at how to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 1Tbsp. honey
  • 4 ounces of canned pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 Cup V8 Splash® Smoothies Strawberry Banana

I am not a big fan of pineapple, so I omitted that and added in some fresh bananas to give more texture. To make the smoothie, just mix all the ingredients together in a blender.

I also used the Banana Strawberry V8 Splash® Smoothie in my Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe.

I love this recipe because it looks so chocolaty and decadent, but it only uses about a teaspoon of cocoa powder. While I usually use fresh fruit, this time I only used the banana. The V8 Splash® Strawberry Banana Smoothie had plenty of strawberry taste so I could eliminate those. Want to know how to make it? It’s easy! Just mix the following together in a blender:

  • 1 Cup V8 Splash® Smoothies Strawberry Banana
  • 1/2 cup lowfat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 1 small ripe banana (or half of a large one)

The best thing about V8 Splash® Smoothies is that they’re perfect year round. You can enjoy your favorite flavors in the dead of winter or the middle of summer. They have such a smooth and creamy taste, you can totally drink them on their own without even adding anything to them! Of course, it’s just so much fun to come up with smoothie recipes that you’ll want to experiment a bit!

What is your favorite V8 Splash® Smoothies flavor? How do you incorporate them into your other smoothies recipes?
