Smoothie Recipes

For a quick, nutritious breakfast, a smoothie recipe is just the thing. Smoothies are also ideal for a post-workout snack or an afternoon pick-me-up. They're easy to make, refreshing, and altogether delicious. They are also fast to make and using recipes with protein-packed ingredients such as peanut butter or antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries amp up the nutrition.
