I love making fresh smoothies because I find it way more cost-efficient to buy bags of assorted frozen fruits while being able to customize smoothies so that my toddler isn’t always drinking the same flavored smoothies.

Another reason why I love making smoothies is that you can sneak in vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli, or other veggies to add more nutrients.
