OK, so you might not be a morning person just yet. And in the dead of winter, it’s impossible to see how you ever could be. But we think there’s just one thing you need to feel more chipper in the A.M.: the perfect smoothie.

Think about it…smoothies are customizable, delicious, and (perhaps most importantly) portable. And as January draws to a close, sipping on a smoothie is the ultimate way to regain that summery, garden-fresh feeling back in your life.
