September 8, 2020

It ensures that I get a good dose of veggies without even thinking about it.  A homemade smoothie also avoids the wasteful single-use plastic bottles that store-bought versions generate.  If mornings are busy for you, prepare your smoothie the night before, store in the fridge, and simply blend in seconds when…
