Summer Days Smoothie
Hello family and friends!
I hope y'all are doing well. It's been some time since I added my last recipe (just over a year). Life has been busy, but healthy recipes have still been on my mind. This smoothie recipe is one of my go-to's, since it's an easy way to pack in some fruits and veggies for the day. Plus, my husband likes it too so we'll often enjoy this smoothie together.
While trying to decide on the name for this smoothie, my husband was working on his music album titled, Summer Days. I had some other smoothie name ideas, but none of them seemed quite right. Then it clicked, this is the perfect Summer Days Smoothie! Thanks hubby, for the name inspiration and always encouraging me to pursue my passions.
This Summer Days Smoothie will leave you feeling refreshed and hydrated. I hope you enjoy this Summer Days Smoothie. Cheers!

While this recipe was made with summer in mind, you can easily swap out the fruit with your favorite combinations or with whatever fruits are in season. One thing to keep in mind is this smoothie is more like a juice consistency compared to the typical thicker smoothies. However, if you'd prefer a thicker smoothie, feel free to add more fruit and less water.
