Super Simple Smoothies

Guys, this will take you 5 minutes to make. That is my promise to you.

    If you want to know something about me….I’m kinda weird. I love fruit! But who isn’t? There are so many ways to get your nutrients throughout the day. I LOVE smoothies because they keep me full, they’re quick for when I have to run out the door, AND they reduce my sugar and sweets cravings. And I can also grab one at night if I’m just not that hungry but don’t want to binge eat!

I would rather drink a lot of my meals than chew them lol, hence my obsession with nutrition shakes and smoothies and juices! I use a Vitamix so I don’t need a juicer because all of my veggies can be blended in this powerful machine! I absolutely love it. Looking for a cheaper option? Check out the Ninja!

These are hands down my favorite smoothies and juices.
