For some, “healthy smoothies that taste good” is an oxymoron. I, too, used to curl up my lip at the idea of so-called “healthy smoothies”.
For an in-depth look at whether or not Smoothies are healthy and good for you check out this Healthline article.
But I’m committing to a healthier lifestyle as we enter a new decade. 2020 is the year of the the healthy smoothie that tastes good! I’m also upping my blender game with one of the best new blenders.
And with the help of these healthy smoothie recipes I’m confident I’ll be drinking them regularly. Maybe not everyday! But regular-like.
