A smoothie to stay cool, energized

With warm summer weather growing closer and closer, there are two tempting, non-alcoholic options when deciding what to sip or not to sip on: a milkshake as a refreshing sweet treat or ice water to work on getting that summer bod. It goes without saying that both of these options aren’t the best if you’re hungry, however, so why not combine the cooling off aspect of a milkshake and the low calories of water by having a smoothie? For a simple, low-cal smoothie, try out this green apple smoothie. It’s sweet, cool, filling and nutritious.


2 cored Granny Smith apples

1/4 cup of dates

1/2 tbsp. of cinnamon

2 cups of water

1 cup of spinach

1 cup of ice

Dash of nutmeg


1. Rinse the fruits off with water.

2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender.

3. Blend them on high until smooth.

4. Pour into a cup.

5. Add a curly straw to the cup—not optional.
