Smoothies Gone WILD with Nutrition

Join @NutriBulletUNI and @WildBBerries for a #WildYourSmoothie Twitter Chat on Wed Aug 3 at 11am PDT/2pm EDT

Smoothie-making was once viewed as a habit of the health and fitness crowd, but today they’ve become a central part of the American diet. Their portability makes them the perfect nutrition-packed snack or meal replacement for on-the-go lifestyles. Smoothies also make a great breakfast or post workout snack – even dessert – and they come in so many combinations they can win over the pickiest of eaters.
