Summertime Smoothies!

I am all about spending my summer weekends lounging by the pool with a good book in hand (and maybe a snack or two in the other). These days are always relaxing and much needed, but I have begun to notice a troublesome trend in my poolside snacking habits. I tend to gravitate towards the junkier side of the snack spectrum when searching for my “on-the-go” nosh. If you’re like me (no shame BTW!), and are looking for a tasty and healthy substitute snack to enjoy on your pool days, go ahead and try these seasonal smoothies! They offer the perfect balance of delicious and nutritious, and are guaranteed to outdo any junk food!

SRS has summer chic serveware to help you conquer this poolside treat! The Vitamix blender is amazing for creating smoothies with perfect consistency and the easy clean up is an added bonus! My favorite part, besides drinking the smoothies, is the trendy milk jugs they are served in! Check out the glass milk jugs with spill resistance lids, which make them hard to say no! Also, if you are looking for an extra pop of color, add some festive straws!
