Recipe Box: 3 Yummy Smoothies

Standard

When I first started on my fitness journey some four years ago, the only smoothies I wanted to drink were the sugary ones at Planet Smoothie. As I learned to eat better and then became a part of the smoothie explosion, I’ve been experimenting with different smoothie recipes. Some were delicious, while others were gross! Even when I had to relinquish my membership to the gym, it was a smoothie a day that kept the extra weight off.
