There’s nothing like the fresh start of a new year (and the dead of Winter) to get you pumped up about fresh fruits and veggies. I’ve been making tons of smoothies lately, and though I usually just throw in whatever’s in the refrigerator, I’ve been looking for some new recipes to shake up my regimen. Green smoothies are (usually) tasty – just remember some lemon and honey when using bitter greens, but I’m excited about making some of the “red” smoothie recipes below (maybe even the dragon fruit recipe – how exotic)! If you’re new to smoothie-making but want to get started, do make sure you’ve got a decent blender. There’s nothing more frustrating that pouring out a lumpy smoothie that’s not been mixed well. I’ve got a Magic Bullet and I’m a huge fan of it, especially because of it’s size and single-serving cups (not sponsored). Got any favorite smoothie recipes? Let me know in the comments below.
