Springtime Is For Smoothies + OsterVersa Blender Giveaway ($300 Value)

Now that the weather is warming up and spring is around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about really quenching your thirst.

Smoothies are one of my favorite things to help cool me down. They’re healthy, satisfying, fast, easy, and there’s an endless variety of options and recipes.

My two awesome friends, Chung-Ah of Damn Delicious and Marla of Family Fresh Cooking, and I are offering one lucky reader the chance to win an OsterVersa Blender.

It’s such an amazing blender and makes quick work of anything you toss into it. From Smoothies to Flourless Peanut Butter Chocoalte Chip Blender Muffins to Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, I use my blender all the time.

I’ve included ten of my favorite smoothie recipes that I make over and over, and that are all very popular with readers.
