As of late, I’ve been on a smoothie kick.
My boss, my boyfriend, my best friends… they’d all tell you the same thing. This girl is obsessed with smoothies!
I’ve always been a bit of a health nut – don’t get me wrong, I have my things. Chocolate, pasta, burgers. Gosh, I’d love a juicy 5 Guys burger right now…
But eating well is important to me. (Stay on track Katie!)
With the weather changing and the sun peeking through, a cold smoothie hits the spot on a whimsical spring day. It also is an easy way to get in your greens, without even tasting them!
Below, I’ve named 4 smoothie places in Grand Rapids that have me HOOKED. I’m talking punch card and all, you guys.
Try them out, and let me know what you think!
