Smoothies!

March 24th, 2014


Smoothies are always a go-to meal for me. They are so quick to make, easy to bring with you if you’re on the run, and don’t require much washing up afterwards.

Smoothies are a wonderful way to get a large dose of fruits and veggies in one sitting (or on the go).  They are simple enough to create and even tastier to drink!

Packed with vitamins, minerals and nutrients they are sure to leave your taste buds happy and you tummy satisfied.

Here are 3 wonderful ones to incorporate into that hectic day!
