Keeping it Cool

Refreshing Summer Breakfasts

Here are a few things that will get you out of bed on a hot, sunny, summer morning. (Aside from that first cup of coffee.) From smoothie bowls to chia pudding, açai bowls and more, these recipes are easy to make, while being deliciously satisfying and healthy.

Pro tip: any time you have some leftover smoothie, you can pour it into a popsicle mold for an easy afternoon snack, or breakfast on the go.
