There's a reason smoothie stores are popping up everywhere—the blended frozen beverage is delicious, and especially refreshing when temperatures climb toward triple digits. And it's an even better treat when made at home, because you can skip the unnecessary fat and sugar commonly found in store versions and keep it simple with heart-healthy fruits and protein. Read on for six recipes that are sweet, simple to make and loaded with good-for-you nutrients.

The Basic Recipe

1 cup mixed fresh or frozen fruit (our favorite combo is blueberries and peaches)

1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 30 seconds to 1 minute).

Protein Punch

This yummy combination of nut butter and yogurt gives you about 15 grams of protein and 40 percent of the calcium you need for the day.

2 Tbsp nut butter (such as peanut or almond)

1 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt

1 banana

1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 1 minute).

Tropical Immunity Blast

Drink this and you'll get plenty of help avoiding those annoying summer colds. It has a healthy dose of immunity-boosting vitamins A and C (in the mango and papaya), probiotics (in the yogurt), antioxidants (in the blueberries) and omega-3 fatty acids (in the flaxseed oil). Plus, it's a treat for your taste buds!

1 cup lowfat plain yogurt

1 Tbsp flaxseed oil

1 mango, diced

1/2 papaya, diced

1/2 cup blueberries

1 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 1 minute).

Post-Workout Pump-Up

The milk adds carbohydrates and protein that your muscles need for recovery after an intense workout. Ginger can also help reduce muscle aches.

1 cup skim or lowfat chocolate milk

1 cup strawberries

1 tsp minced ginger

1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 1 minute).

Bone Builder

The 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese in this smoothie provides roughly a third of your daily calcium needs, while the same amount of yogurt would only give you 20 percent.

1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

1 cup raspberries

1/2 Tbsp Nutella (optional)

1/4 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 30 seconds).

Feel-Good Fix

The yogurt's carbohydrates and protein will keep you energized, while the omega-3 fats in walnut oil help optimize brain function.

1 cup nonfat or lowfat vanilla yogurt

1 cup blackberries

1 Tbsp walnut oil

1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth (about 1 minute).
