Spring is right around the corner, and by right around the corner, we mean tomorrow. “Wait, what?!” That’s right. Even though it may not feel like spring is in the air, warmer weather, sunshine, and yes, shorts and swim suits, will be a reality before you know it.

So as we adjust our closets from cable knits to maxi dresses, let’s make some changes in the kitchen, too. These healthy smoothies are just the light and fresh recipes to help you make the transition.
