Just another manic May Monday? No way! We're just a week away from Memorial Day weekend. Pools are opening, sunshine is sticking around and there is a whizzing-sound buzzing from my kitchen - my Vitamix of course. I've been blending up a storm lately because it is indeed Smoothie Season.
So to get YOU in the mood for my fave time of year, here's my yummy guide to smoothies, smoothies, smoothies. Healthy, happy sippin' to all..
Smoothie Season means more to me than just frosty, fruity, colorful tall glasses of smoothie bliss. To me, it means happiness, sunshine and health. Smoothies are such an easy, delicious way to fuel and energize your day. And there are so many flavor combos and ingredient inspirations to try. I hope you will get excited about smoothie season and blend with me all spring and summer long! ..OK, all year long, really!
