It’s hot, hot, hot. There’s no way to escape the sun but try diving into an ice-cold smoothie to beat the heat. Filled with the goodness of fruit and yogurt, smoothies can be used as between-the-meals snacks. You not only keep cool but also stay healthy. Here’s your chance to include plenty of summer fruits like strawberries, blackberries, mangoes and more. Fortify your smoothie with flax seed or spice it up with cinnamon. Substitute regular yogurt with Greek yogurt for extra protein. You can make larger quantities and store them in jars in the freezer.
