Who says smoothies have a season? Well it’s not us, and it’s certainly not our blender.
Just because summer is over and the farmers market has closed up shop doesn’t mean there’s not plenty of produce to be enjoyed over the late fall and winter months. In fact, the bounty is just as beautiful, nutritious, and delicious as its fair-weathered harvest counterparts.
In October you’ve got pumpkins, apples, pears, papaya, and coconut. November brings carrots, bananas, beets, cranberries, and avocado. Then December delivers kale, tangerines, oranges, and dates. Tell me you can’t make a handful of exceptional smoothies with those ingredients?
Smoothies are an all-year, all-weather meal. We love ‘em because they’re quick and easy to make, completely filling and satisfying, and provide a hyper-shot of fruits and vegetables anytime of day. Especially at breakfast, smoothies make an exceptional meal for kicking off the day ahead.
