With all this heat, it’s clear that summer in Cape Town is well on its way, and with it comes our favourite season: the festive holidays. We all look forward to spending quality time with our loved ones, letting off all the built-up steam of the year, and simply indulging in good vibes only.
That’s why smoothies are the ideal summer drink — apart from cocktails, of course — when you’re in need of a conveniently delicious way to fill up, cool down, and get all your nutrients, in between all the fun.
The summer classic
What’s a summertime smoothie without a classic strawberry and banana combo?

The green smoothie
This refreshing drink is not only packed with flavour and nutrients, but it also serves as a great way to get in all your necessary greens and detox your body.
@kizactivelife Green smoothie 💚 (but I promise you can’t taste the greens hehe) #greensmoothie #greensmoothierecipe #smoothierecipe #smoothierecipe #thicksmoothie ♬ good days by sza – kdedit
The blueberry banana smoothie
Did you know that blueberries have more antioxidants than almost any other fruit? Not to mention it always makes for a very aesthetically pleasing summer drink.

The mint green smoothie bowl
Two cups of frozen mango, some coconut cubes, and a touch of blue spirulina and coconut milk to bring it all together. Creamy, decadent, and healthy. What more could one ask for?

The chocolate peanut butter smoothie
There are smoothies that taste like good health and then there are smoothies that could easily pass as a semi-liquid dessert (while still being healthy of course). All chocolate and peanut butter lovers know that this is the go-to smoothie if you’re looking for a summer treat
