As the weather gradually gets warmer and warmer, cooling off is more important than ever. A refreshing, cooling treat is something everyone can look forward to during summertime. Sometimes, though, these treats can be full of unhealthy ingredients that make us feel even more run down. One treat, though, can give your body amazing benefits beyond the delicious taste.

Green smoothies are not only beautiful (and Instagram-worthy), but they’re also incredibly refreshing, energizing, and beautifying. Ingredients like spinach help boost your mood and energy, clear your skin, and give your smoothie a beautiful color. Don’t worry about the leafy taste, though, as most of your favorite fruits and smoothie add-ons easily mask the taste of spinach.

This summer, reach for a delicious green smoothie (or smoothie bowl) as your new favorite treat. For inspiration, keep reading to find the tastiest green smoothie recipes. There’s one for everyone!
