Rejuvenate and refresh with this vibrant spring smoothie

Finally - It's time for spring. With the season comes longer days, warmer weather, and an opportunity to start anew! It's time to emerge from the hibernation of winter and spend more time outdoors.

The warm weather and sunshine also kicks our schedules up a notch as we tend to schedule in more, from spring sports, scout troops, and dog parks. Getting nutrients on the go can be tricky, but this fruity smoothie is the perfect solution. Not only is it nutritious, but it is bright and colorful - like bringing in the goodness of spring flowers.

A powerhouse of organic fruits & veggies.

The greatest benefit of smoothies is how they allow you to pack in a ton of nutrients with only a few minutes of prep time. For the best flavor and nutrition, we aim to use organic ingredients.

Organic fruits and vegetables offer all the benefits of traditional fruits and veggies minus the chemicals. In fact, organic produce may have more antioxidants and flavonoids. Eating organic gives peace of mind knowing that your food is free from harmful pesticides. Not to mention it's much better for the environment and affects the lives of the growers. Organic farms prioritize soil health and biodiversity, creating a healthier system all around. So when you shop for these ingredients, think organic!

Ingredients for spring strawberry and apple smoothie


1. Wash, slice and cut all ingredients as necessary to prepare for blending.
2. Combine all the tasty ingredients for your romaine-apple layer and whiz them up in a blender until you have a nice smooth texture. Distribute the mixture evenly between two glasses.
3. Before filling the blender with new ingredients, give it a quick rinse to ensure smooth blending for the upcoming layer.
4. Next, combine all the ingredients for the strawberry-blueberry layer in your blender. Whirl together until you have a smooth texture, then slowly pour it over the romaine-apple layer.
5. Get creative and make some epic designs with a simple straw! Just push the straw all the way down to the bottom of your glass, then draw it against the glass through both layers.

Tip: You can prep the ingredients ahead of time, and store the ingredients for each layer in freezer bags in your freezer until you are ready to blend.
