Not sure how to start your day in a healthy way? Craving for something sweet and refreshing? Start making smoothies!

This idea came to us as soon as we realized that a tone of ice- cream, which had been eaten during uncountable summer days is not making a good impact on our beach bodies. We know that when it comes to wearing your bikini in order to feel great, you need to look your best. And that’s why we decided to replace our gelato with a delicious, fruity and full of vitamins smoothie. What’s so great about them? You can make your smoothies from whatever veggies and fruits you find in the fridge and it takes you no more than 10 minutes to prepare them! Here’s our smoothie top 5:
