I haven't posted on this board in a while. Partly because I don't know that anyone even reads it cause I rarely get comments and the other reason is because I have just been busy!! But I thought that since the weather here, in the St. Louis area, has warmed up dramatically I needed to post some things to drink to quench your summer thirst! So here are a few smoothie recipes that I've found but if you don't want to make your own you can always go to Panera Bread Co and get a Strawberry or Mango Smoothie. They even have a frozen Lemonade that is great! Well, enjoy and happy spring/summer.
