A Round Up of My Favorite Healthy Smoothies

Thanks to the Nutri Bullet and my love for Pinterest, having freshly made smoothies on a whim has been my new thing. I love fresh smoothies because they are a great way to get the vitamins your body needs through fruits and veggies (esp the not so fun ones). I love them also because I can ensure I am not taking in any extra chemicals or preservatives found is store bought juices and I can easily customize it to suit my current health need.

My favorite blends are smoothies that involve a lot of berries because of their antioxidant properties. Blends like Blueberry Banana and Berry Festivals (any fruit that ends in berries). So today I share with you a roundup of my favorite smoothies. These smoothies not only give you your daily supply of vitamins but also help with healthy skin, brain function and overall energy.
