This week, for Free Recipe Friday, we pay homage to BLEND Juice Bar, one of our favorite stops for smoothies, juice, and superfoods! We always visit BLEND’s Mt. Pleasant location (320 W. Coleman Blvd., Mt. Pleasant, SC) since Pilates of Charleston is only five minutes away. A smoothie or juice is the perfect snack for us, and a much healthier alternative than fast food or a coffee shop splurge that might involve a pastry!?! When we only have a short break in our jam packed teaching days, BLEND Juice bar is a go-to for us! Smoothies and cold pressed juices are packed with fruits and vegetables that fuel your body with energy and nutrients than you don’t get with processed food. Ever tried a wheatgrass shot? They have some pretty impressive nutritional power…they’re loaded with chlorophyll, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. You can get all all these things within a wide array of variations and flavors to please anyone’s palate at BLEND.
