Hi fit52 fam!

One of my go to’s after a workout is a smoothie, especially now with the weather getting warmer! They are really refreshing and so easy to put together. There are so many combinations of ingredients you can experiment with, but I am excited to share my recent favorite with you. I’ve been making a lot of green smoothies lately, which is a great way to get in those veggies!

This one is a tropical kale banana green smoothie. I really hope you enjoy it!
