Top 5 Favorite Smoothie Recipes

Posted by Emma B on

Smoothies have always been a staple in my diet and they're perfect for a nutritional breakfast or lunch. Looking for a few recipes to shake up your routine? Keep reading!

All of these smoothies are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free so you really can't go wrong. Optional add ins for all of these smoothies include: chia seeds, flax seed, hemp seed, maca root powder, or protein powder -- if you're into that.
