Summer is here! With the temperatures rising, everyone is looking for cool treats. While ice cream is my top pick for summer decadence, sometimes you want something both refreshing AND healthy. Summer smoothies are a great way to pack lots of nutrition into a little glass. With so much versatility and fresh summer produce, you won’t have a chance to bore your taste buds. Here are my top picks for summer smoothies!
