This smoothie is one of our go-to’s for smoothies in the summer. It gets packed in lunch boxes for camp, and in coolers for long car rides. Also, I will sometimes pack this little gem in my son’s sports cooler, along with a bottle of filtered water on warm outdoor game days, or in the winter for him to have during or after his indoor basketball games. It sure beats a bottle of gatorade and a bag of chips, and its nutritional burst of energy will keep him going and focussed for a very long time! Of course, his smoothies do not look exactly like the one in the picture when he takes them to his games. He drinks them out of a somewhat tinted, insulated water bottle without the pretty string 🙂 Sometimes a little improvising goes a long way!
