Breakfast, lunch, snacks, desserts, or as their very own meal, smoothies can do it all! They’re super nutritious, and perfect to drink any time of day. And no matter your personal tastes or nutritional requirements, the possibilities are endless.
Smoothies have the edge over simply drinking juices, as they retain all of the fiber from raw fruit and vegetables.
