Summer Super Smoothies

Craving a cold, yummy fruit and veggie smoothie? You’re not the only one. During warmer months we aren’t as hungry and don’t desire as many heavy/ hot foods. And besides we all want our summer bodies to look good in our bathing suits. So lighten up! Swap one meal a day for a nutritious, antioxidant rich smoothie. The combinations are endless.

Below are a few of our favorites, which also all have detox properties. Feel free to add your favorite protein powder or vitamins! Dr. G’s favorite extras are flaxseed, hemp seed, collagen, plant based protein powder and bee pollen.
