Summer Smoothie - Tips and Recipes

Smoothie’s are great -- they’re quick, nutritious (well, can be depending on what you put in them), and they taste great! It’s a perfect way to start your morning. Here are some smoothie-related links, products, and articles from our "5-Bullet Friday" e-mail newsletter, which is free and goes out every Friday.

  • Smoothie tip: Add some texture to your smoothie – right before you’re done blending, add coconut flakes or cacao nibs. “Chewing” your smoothie will activate digestive enzymes that will enhance nutrient absorption.
