Since there are only two more weeks until move-in, we wanted to give you the recipe to this delicious (and sneaky) smoothie to give you the nutrition and energy you need to soak up these precious last couple weeks! Want more smoothie love? Look for the recipe to our Berry-Mango Smoothie next week!

Very nice Post about Smoothies. Could we subtitute sugar with the honey? I think this will make the Smoothies more healthy and delicious. Wait for your next post. Thanks
