Ahh, summer. The season where the sun is always shining, going outdoors is always an option, and drinks are served over ice. While there’s nothing like a sweating iced tea or kombucha to accompany you in the sunshine, smoothies and juices are an easy way to take a break from the heat and get your daily dose of fruits and veggies at the same time.
The Co-op’s smoothies and juices are made with organic fruits and vegetables and can include additions like echinacea, matcha, spirulina, and turmeric. You may have a favorite from our signature drink menu, but if you are looking for a new way to get fruits and vegetables in your diet, we asked members of the Co-op team in the Deli and Bakery their favorite, fresh combinations.
