We’re quickly heading into summer. Temperatures are heating up and that means our kitchens are too! Turn off your oven and move over microwave – smoothies are here and they’re packing a nutritious punch along with some cool refreshment. All you need is your favorite fruits and vegetables, a couple of fruits and vegetables you already have on hand, and a blender.
