Okay people, now that its nice outside, I don’t know about you, but I’m looking for that quick refreshing drink to give me fuel. I have been making the most of the weather outside lately and running, and its nice to make something quick in the blender to keep me going. Side note- I have had a ton of clients sick lately, so I figured this smoothie will fit in nicely…bring on the antioxidants (And warm weather)!!
This serving size is meant for two- I usually blend mine and save my second serving for the next day, just add ice!
-Throw all the ingredients into your blender and blend very well until creamy. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
