4 Healthy and Refreshing Drinks You Can Make at Home
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.
- 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
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.

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.
- 2 whole mangos, peeled and cored
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
Blend together all ingredients using your Oster® Pure Blend™ 300 Blender. Sip this sweet and healthy drink whenever you need a pick me up.

- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 2 bananas, peeled
