Garden Smoothies

You can customize this recipe in an abundance of ways. To make garden fresh smoothies all year long, freeze your produce. Dark leafy greens & berries keep well in the freezer, and fresh herbs like mint & basil can be frozen into easy-use cubes. Just toss them straight from the ice tray into the blender! Experiment with different flavors and textures – incorporate nut butters and fresh squeezed fruit juices to give your smoothie extra proteins and nutrients.
