I have been making this smoothie for a long time. 

I often make this smoothie during the summer when I am hosting a party with my friends.

  2. Throw Extra Greens: Add 1 cup of spinach for extra green goodness. 
  3. More Freshness: Add 1/3 cup of sliced cucumber for a more refreshing twist. 
  4. Creaminess & Protein: Add 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt if you are not avoiding dairy for a creamy twist that adds protein and probiotics!
