Best Summer Smoothies
Now that summer is here my go to breakfast before work is a fresh smoothie! You can do so many different flavors and add so much nutritional value there are endless options. Full disclosure, I’m not really a follow the recipe kind girl when it comes to smoothies. I throw in a little bit of this or that usually I add a bit of plain Greek yogurt to thicken and add some extra protein, and as long as I have enough fresh or frozen fruit they always turn out good!
