A busy, active lifestyle depends on healthy and refreshing drinks that give you the fuel you need. Instead of waiting in line at the drive-thru of a coffee shop chain for a drink loaded with calories and sugar, make your own nutritious beverages at home. 

The Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender makes it easy to create healthy, flavorful drinks right in your own kitchen. Here are four nutritious and refreshing drinks you can make at home:

1. Iced Chai Tea
Switch up your coffee habit with a smooth and refreshing iced chai tea. Added spices and vanilla make this drink sweet and satisfying, without extra sugar. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups skim milk 
  • 2 cups brewed black tea 
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • Extra cinnamon 

Directions
Blend together all ingredients using your Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender. Pour into glasses filled with ice and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon before enjoying. 

2. Mocha Coffee Frappe
Think chocolately coffee drinks can't be healthy? Think again. This recipe uses raw cacao powder that contains a high level of antioxidants and nutrient-rich almond milk as replacements for the ingredients commonly found in sweet coffee shop drinks. Skip mounds of sugar and sky-high swirl of whipped cream and instead make this delicious drink at home - it's sure to put a pep in your step! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brewed coffee 
  • 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder
  • 2 cups almond milk 
  • Ice

Directions
Add all ingredients to your Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender and combine. Pour into glasses and enjoy your coffee fix! 

3. Sweet Mango Smoothie
You may think you're being healthy when you order a smoothie at your favorite local coffee shop, but in fact, that beverage is likely hiding a whole host of unhealthy ingredients - including tons of added sugar. Instead, make a healthier version at home that gets its sweetness the natural way with this nutritious smoothie. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole mangos, peeled and cored 
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk 
  • 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt 
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks

Directions
Blend together all ingredients using your Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender. Sip this sweet and healthy drink whenever you need a pick me up. 

4. Peanut Butter Milkshake
Usually a milkshake is a once-in-a-while indulgence - but not with this recipe! This peanut butter milkshake tastes sweet and satisfying, but it actually is made with a combination of good-for-you ingredients. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 bananas, peeled 
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk 

Directions
Add all ingredients to your Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and enjoy.
