How Do You Smoothie? National Smoothie Day 2018

There are so many national days all year round, but we have a special affinity for National Smoothie Day. Not only is National Smoothie Day an excuse (not that we needed one) to drink more smoothies, it is also the first day of summer! We don’t think there is a better combination than a hot summer day and a cold smoothie full of nutrients.

 

Smoothies are appealing for a variety of reasons. They are easy to prep, easier to make, and the easiest to drink. One of the best things about drinking smoothies is that they are pre-digested. Because the ingredients are already blended, the body doesn’t have to work to digest the food and absorb the nutrients. Just make sure that you aren’t adding any sugary, bottled juices to your smoothies; all those chemicals counteract the consumption of the fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

If you need to include more green vegetables in your diet, smoothies are the answer. If you want to have a simple substitute for a meal replacement, smoothies are the answer. Finally, if you want to control your portions and avoid complex cooking techniques, smoothies are the answer. Are you ready to take part in the celebration of National Smoothie Day? Try some of our favorite smoothie recipes below.
