I've been drinking a lot of smoothies lately, ever since Hubby got this blender from Costco. It's amazing! It's also a good reason to have pina colada and margarita parties. Pina Colada party was already a success... But that's not what we're talking about right now.
Smoothies, yummy and healthy. I'm starting to drink green smoothies, I know they are weird at first but you can't even taste the spinach or kale. So here are a few links to get you started. Don't worry you don't need a fancy blender, it just makes it easier.
