Step by Step Smoothies

Hello,

Oh gosh, I needed a break from my politics essay, so wanted to share with you my favourite base ingredients to build a smoothie step by step, smoothies are a smart way to get a whole heap of nutrients, and proteins into one fast meal or snack, and they are perfect if you are short on time, need more nutrients in your life, or are a vegan or vego lacking protein.
