NOSH Summer Smoothies


Smoothies are a wonderful treat on a hot summer day! They are also a great meal replacement, and a nice start to your day. Adding leafy greens along with fruit increases the amount of daily nutrients you are putting into your body, and is especially helpful if you’re not a fan of vegetables.


Frozen fruit is also a good option because it will make your smoothies cold without having to add ice! Try cutting up fresh fruit and freezing it ahead of time to avoid any added sugars.  Bananas are especially great for this tip!
