Smooth Drinker


This is silly but I've been asked several times about my smoothies. I drink them a lot in the summer and so I thought I'd post a few that I thought were good. Try them-you won't be sorry. Although there isn't a lot of fat in these-there is a lot of sugar from the fruit and yogurt, so I drink them as a post-workout boost. I hope you like them!
