Many days, it seems that there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get our fair share of fruits and vegetables. Without them, however, there are serious health consequences. A simple and on-the-go alternative to picking up takeout for an unhealthy meal is a fresh, healthy smoothie. The Hot Sox team has put together three easy summer smoothies to make getting those vitamins and minerals possible for any lifestyle.
