4 Vegan Summer Smoothie Recipes To Boost Your Day

2 Mins Read

Hong Kong summers mean high temps, too much humidity and lots of dehydration (so make sure you are constantly downing water, from your reusable bottle natch). It’s also that time of the year when your body naturally veers towards lighter meals. Smoothies are the perfect way to ingest your vitamins and nutrients while giving your digestive system some much-needed time off. Smoothies are easy, smoothies are convenient, smoothies are delicious- there’s simply no reason NOT to love smoothies.

Below we’ve created four vegan smoothie recipes in the Green Queen kitchen that are as tasty as they are are nutritious.
