Vegetable and Fruit Smoothies

May 5, 2012 By

Use all organic ingredients.

Veggie and fruit smoothies, or a combination of both, are a quick, nutritious, and delicious way to snack or enjoy a meal. All you need is a high powered blender, and the organic foods you want to use. Other things to add besides beautiful fruits and veggies can include nut milks, silken tofu, soy milk, coconut milk, coconut water, whole nuts and seeds, and endless other choices. It’s a fun, easy, and super healthy way to enjoy taking care of your body. Let’s get to creating!
