Smoothie Weather is the Best Weather


Betsy Smith, Web Editor

That’s right folks, you heard it here first. The most important type of weather has finally returned. SMOOTHIE WEATHER is back. While it is true that a smoothie is a beverage that can be consumed during those frigid winter months, there’s just something unappetizing about drinking something that is the same temperature (or warmer) than the temperature outside. So, if in your haphazard spring cleaning you happen to be dusting off your blender, give one of these smoothie recipes a go!

1/2 cup – milk*

1/2 cup – ice cubes

1 scoop – chocolate protein powder***



*Can substitute a milk alternative (almond, coconut, soy, etc)
