"Hello, my name is Zoe and I'm a smoothie addict."
I'm obsessed with smoothies! I recently got a Bella blender which is a far cry from my 19-year-old one with the broken blender. (P.S. the Bella's on a great sale right now! It's only 20 dollars and comes with 5 tumblers. The blade screws onto the cup, so you can drink out of the tumbler you blended it with! I love that because it's fewer dishes for me 🙂)
In case you're not already part of the #smoothiesquad, here are a few reasons why you should be:
They're healthy. I know, I know, it's kind of obvious, but smoothies are a fantastic way of getting your fruit and veggie fix in! I personally don't like salads (shh) so I normally eat a lot of raw vegetables. I've started adding a cup or so of greens to my smoothies. I haven't noticed a taste difference whatsoever but I do feel a lot better! It makes me feel like a semi-healthy person and I notice an instant mood lift.
Smoothies are Instagrammable! Most summer days I've been in my super comfy clothes with half-done hair and do not feel like taking pictures. But smoothies are more photogenic than you'll ever be and look awesome on your story! (If you don't have the 'gram, you'll still appreciate having a colorful drink in your hand.)
They are so easy! I almost never follow a formula with my smoothies. Even with this recipe, feel free to play around! I often pick a theme like tropical, berry, or green and throw in whatever I want. Smoothies are pretty much #nofail . . . it's hard for them to taste bad!
