Smoothies to Try This Summer!

A refreshing green smoothie! Is there a better way to get back in balance? Delicious, creamy smoothies are one of my happy places, and my favorite way to start a summer day! As the temperatures rise, I tend to UP my smoothie game around here!! My body just craves the hydrating, nourishing mini meal.

Smoothies are super easy to make and a really effective way to consume your phytonutrients, fiber, vitamins, healthy fats and live enzymes! The reason I love smoothies for our kids is that I can easily disguise veggies, gut boosting protein and healthy fat with the natural sweetness from fruit.

Since we are approaching Memorial Weekend & summer!! {YES!} It feels like a good time to share some of the smoothies the kids and I have been making lately! BONUS:: They taste like a treat!!
