Let’s face it: we’re always on our way somewhere for something. As a college student, I’m on the go and rarely have a moment to pause and eat a sufficient meal, even as a dietetics major (ironic, right?).

Well, this treat is fast, simple and nutritious and makes a quick on-the-go breakfast for all of you busy bees! This smoothie contains a delicious mixture of fresh fruits full of vitamin C and antioxidants. It’s also dairy free, gluten free, and vegan.
