5 Easy Summer Smoothies

Properly nourishing your body is the key to sustaining your energy levels, well-being, and overall health. Common sense, yes, but we still find ourselves putting things into our bodies which might not fully support that goal. Why? Because we like the way food tastes, and that can understandably take precedent at times. The best of both worlds is when we can satisfy out pallet while staying relatively healthy.

A great way to do this is by whipping up some delicious, nutrient-dense smoothies! Plus, smoothies can help satisfy your sugar cravings. Finding alternatives is a great and easy way to curb your sweet tooth. Now is the time to whip out that blender that’s collecting dust and start loading up on some fresh fruits & veggies.

With our 3 Month Summer Challenge taking us all the way up to August 13th, here is a list of smoothies you can make in less than 5 minutes to help you stay focused on hitting and maintaining your summer fitness goals.
