Wellness Series | Summer Smoothies

Blend it, baby! To begin my wellness series, I’m so excited to collaborate with my sister – Whitney – who just happens to be a Registered Dietitian! As summer is in full swing, we thought what better way to start the series than with one of our favorite snacks – A smoothie! Whitney has done some research and gathered four recipes that she approves, and thinks you’ll really enjoy. These smoothies are not only a blast to drink, they’re also a b l a s t to make! And they’re all different colors! How cool is that?

Let’s get started!
