9 Fresh Smoothie Recipes to Make the Most of Your Summer Produce

Smoothies are like summer flings. Sure, you have little time together — but those few months are glorious. Blender in one hand and mason jar in the other, you feel whole again. Unstoppable, even. Like you can take over the world, if you only have a cup of Green Goddess by your side.

Of course, all good things must come to an end. Soon, the seasons will turn, and you’ll be sipping on heartier stuff, from pumpkin spice lattes to creamy hot chocolate. But until then, let’s make the most of smoothie weather. Forget your back-to-school recipes and fall TV lineups: We’re celebrating summer with all that it has to offer. Throw in watermelons, berries, and stone fruit — and then pour one out for your warm-weather love. Here’s to you, smoothies. We’ll see you next year.
