3 Healthy Smoothies to Keep You Cool this Summer

Smoothies are a refreshing summer snack, but a smoothie from a juice bar or even one you can pick up at your gym can come loaded with sugar and carbs that aren’t doing your weight loss efforts any favors. Make your smoothies at home instead so you’ll have total control over the ingredients.
