I love smoothies, I make one almost everyday. They’re easy and super customizable. Smoothies are perfect if you’re craving a cold sweet treat, or if you need a quick breakfast on the go! So here are 3 of my personal favorite smoothies to make anytime. Don’t be afraid to change around some of the ingredients or add in some other goodies for any extra nutrients you may need.
