Ahh summer. There’s no better time for ice-cold smoothies to enjoy while relaxing in the morning sun.

And it’s not just about cooling off in hot weather. Delicious summer fruits are now in-season which means they are easier to find and cheaper to buy!

Pro tip: try chopping and freezing all your ingredients before blending for a thicker, frostier texture.
