Make these delicious green smoothies to keep you healthy and energized all day long.
As summer comes to an end, it means less time being spent outside and less daily exercise. Luckily there exist some foods that naturally boost our energy and even clean and keep our gut healthy. Smoothies are a great way to ingest these foods because they are easy to take with you on-the-go, and you can cram a lot of nutrition into every glass. Making the perfect smoothie is subjective, of course, but we find that blending the ingredients well, and keeping it simple usually get the trick done.
