These easy to make smoothies are high in vitamins A and C, others contain anti-inflammatory properties, some possess antioxidants, and others help balance the blood-sugar. I have so many smoothie recipes that I prepare on a weekly basis, these are from these past few weeks. I hope that this post encourages you to eat more fruits & veggies, feel free to share! Enjoy & let me know what you think!
