It’s that time of year when everything is about freshness. Isn’t it wonderful to start getting outside in the fresh spring air to take a bike ride, or just walk around without heavy jackets and umbrellas? For many of us, it’s even fun to freshen up our closets and start rocking some paler hues and lighter fabrics.
And as much as we all love comfort food and hot soup in the cooler months, it’s such a great time of year to also think about eating and drinking cooler, brighter colors – and smoothies are definitely an obvious and delicious go-to option.
Check out this delicious straw-BERRY smoothie, created by registered dietitian Sylvia Klinger. It’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, or any time!
