It’s summer time and all the fruits are in season! So what if you don’t have a juicer… here are some yummy things that you can blend up for a cool healthy summer drink.
Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Have fun! It’s summer ;-)
Don’t forget to accessorize your drinks and make them look like gorgeous cocktails! You deserve it baby! I recommend one juicy juice every day… and watch your energy soar ;-)
FYI – You get healthy bonus points when you use local organic produce! (I consider Italy and Spain to be local… although that’s cheating a little bit!)
- A blender or a hand mixer/blender
- A couple of sexy glasses to pour your refreshing drink into.
Potential Drink Accessories
